Review of the 2003 GMC Envoy XL

  • If you're looking for true seven-passenger capacity and serious cargo space in a midsize SUV, the Envoy XL has the competition beat.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong six- or eight-cylinder power, clean interior design, plenty of passenger and cargo room.

  • Cons

    Spongy suspension, numb steering, odd exterior proportions.

  • What's New for 2003

    For 2003, Envoy XL buyers are able to order options individually, rather than as part of an equipment package, adding potential savings and increased flexibility. The sport-ute's already powerful 4.2-liter inline six engine also gets a slight bump in horsepower, up from 270 to 275; XL buyers seeking increased low-end torque, greater cargo-hauling and trailering capability and speedier acceleration may step up to the newly offered 5.3-liter V8, which spews 290 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, Envoy XLs now boast a new four-position headlamp switch that permits drivers to turn off the vehicle's daytime running lamps and automatic headlamps when necessary.

I love my envoy

Vehicle: 2003 GMC Envoy XL SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

I'm the second owner but I've had for the last 4 years and I LOVE my Envoy. I've never loved a car before but this rides smooth, is so quiet, shifts like a dream, makes tight car-like Uturns, plenty of interior room, nice leg room, has 86,000 miles. I've had to replace the fan clutch ($600), the arm rest (my fault - $70) and something else that I can't remember the name of but it may be called the driveline (?). Anyway, it's the part that causes your vehicle to shift into gear ($200). It's just been a dream to ride and drive. This is a vehicle that you want to take care of because you want it to last forever.




I love it!

I can not say enough about this vehicle. I have had it gor going on 2 1/2 years and besides a few VERY minor things, I can not find anything that I dont like about it. I have had issues with vehicles in the past, and I can honestly say that I HIGHLY encourage everyone to get an Envoy, I have 2 small children and a large dog we do a 1660 mile roundtrip about 5 times a year and it is very comfortable and accomadates my family very well.When I am done with this one I will buy another.

Had two Jimmy's prior to this Envoy. Excellent results with both drove me to the Envoy. I'm 6'3 and this car provides ample room and comfort. 22mpg highway, 16 mpg city, as advertised. Handles well, is generally quiet and I found all controls very functional. Fit and trim pretty good.Overall vision is OK, hard to totally elimitate some peripheral blind spots. Thought the 6 cyl might be a bit underpowerd, but no problems with quick acceleration when needed. One recall with a tail light problem, and a problem with an A/C pressure switch.

The Envoy handles well and is responsive. The adjustable seats and lumbar supports makes for a comfotable ride.Having all the controls at your finger tips make driving safer and easier.




A excellent choice so far

Vehicle: 2003 GMC Envoy XL SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Its a comfortable people hauler. Have been on five trips and it rides very well,with all seats full and luggage packed to the top. Creature comforts are Lexus like.




Alot better than the explorer

Vehicle: 2003 GMC Envoy XL SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Purchased the Envoy after four bad years with 2 different Expl. XLTs. Interior is excellent especially the room for the third row. No major problems, 1 recall. Ride is very smooth and the feature for alternate listening in the back for the kids is great.
