Review of the 2005 GMC Envoy XL

  • If true seven-passenger capacity and serious cargo space are your top priorities in shopping for a midsize SUV, the Envoy XL has the competition beat. Just make sure you test-drive the well-rounded Ford Explorer and Dodge Durango before making a decision.

  • Safety
  • Pros

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

  • Cons

    Sloppy handling around corners, numb steering, some cheap interior materials.

  • What's New for 2005

    For 2005, seating has been restyled and boasts comfort and quality improvements. A touchscreen DVD-based navigation system is now available. A stereo system with CD/MP3 compatibility and full-length side curtain airbags (replacing last year's front-seat side airbags) are new options this year. A top-rung Denali trim is available, and includes distinctive trim, leather seating and a 5.3-liter V8 engine as standard equipment.

2005 envoy

Vehicle: 2005 GMC Envoy XL SLE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Really good experience overall. Only trouble was satellite radio system. We had to change it out under warranty at dealership. No other problems encountered.




My first experience

Vehicle: 2005 GMC Envoy XL SLE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Amazing car for the price. Lot of amenities. I was blown away by the interior design. I was looking for your typical color (grey), not so! Rides better than other SUV's and has much more leg and head room. I was looking to purchase towards end of the year, but couldn't pass up the great deal! Thanks GMC!




Built tough

I owned my GMC Envoy XL for five days when I was hit on the freeway from behind, real hard! My truck was tough, I feel safe. The Jeep Liberty that nailed me is in bad shape. My truck needs a new bumper, and that's it! I recommend this tough truck for anyone with a family! I was upset my new truck was hit, but now I can spread the word to others, it's a great truck that is real safe, and looks good too!!

This is my first SUV and it has been great. The ride of the compares with those I have done in luxury sedans. The Bose sound system, satelite radio, and moonroof are GREAT options that I enjoy. The rear seat can hold a person six feet plus without touching the ceiling. The fuel economy actually gets better as the engine is broke in, ie., EPA 15/20 and I now get 18/23.




Buy your own envoy

The Envoy was the most expensive vehicle I ever bought and I would buy another if I had the need. I am asked questions about it almost everywhere I go and I tell everyone, with this truck you have alot of space, power, what I think is good fuel milage (20 Highway), quiet ride, the turning radius of a small car, and will pull a trailer like its not even behind you. Visibility is great, and I feel good knowing that my wife and 3 children are riding in this. So to sum up what I think of this automobile, I say "buy your own and you wont regret it".
