Review of the 2005 GMC Envoy XUV

  • If you're looking to haul five people and the occasional eight-foot dresser in a midsize SUV, the Envoy XUV has the competition beat -- in fact, there really is no competition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong six- or eight-cylinder power, clean interior design, reconfigurable cargo area.

  • Cons

    Spongy suspension, numb steering, some low-grade interior materials, odd exterior proportions.

  • What's New for 2005

    Seating has been restyled and boasts comfort and quality improvements this year. A touchscreen DVD-based navigation system is now available, and the SLT trim includes burled wood accents inside. A stereo system with CD/MP3 compatibility and full-length side curtain airbags (replacing last year's front-seat side airbags) are also new this year.

Most versatile vehicle i've ever

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

I flew to Alabama from South Texas to get the XUV because it had been discontinued and was hard to find. I will keep my XUV until it dies, because of how versatile it is (SUV/Pickup). Not to mention how enjoyable it is to drive. I've taken it to the Smokey Mtns, the Ozarks as well as traveled home to Wisconsin from deep South Texas without any problems. To me this is the perfect travel vehicle.

I love this vehicle. It drives comfortably; however a little mushy around corners. I would highly recommend this SUV

I love this vehicle. It is great--If I need hauling capabilities--it is there. Just driving--great. All around this car is the answer to having a truck when needed, but having a great vehicle to drive anytime.
