Review of the 2005 GMC Envoy

  • A solid effort from GMC, but it still falls short of more well-rounded midsize SUVs like the Ford Explorer and Toyota 4Runner.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Extensive list of available options, strong six-cylinder engine, user-friendly interior design.

  • Cons

    Numb steering, some low-grade interior pieces, sloppy handling around corners.

  • 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. Among the new options are an audio system with CD/MP3 compatibility and full-length side curtain airbags (which replace last year's front-seat side airbags). A top-rung Denali trim is available, and includes distinctive trim, leather seating and a 5.3-liter V8 engine as standard equipment.

Good suv

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

This is my first GMC, and it is better than i expected. I owned a Nissan Pathfinder for 18 yrs and I hope this one can last like that. I am very pleased thus far.




Excellent vehicle

Very smooth ride! I also test drove the Equinox Trailblazer and XTerra but the envoy had my vote from the first. Very comfortable very roomy. My dog likes it and he hates road trips. Definitely wouldn't trade it for anything else on the market.




Very happy

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

Bought our Envoy in September and have loved it ever since. It has lots of power and great acceleration, and has no problem towing our boat and snowmobiles. Very comfortable interior with more space than our old Venture in the rear seat. The Envoy seems to be very quiet driving, all though it has a beautifull growl when you really floor it. Auto 4wd is great in the snow. The only problem is that the Envoy is a pig on gas, were only getting approx 14mpg and that's stretching it. Overall we are very happy with our Envoy.




Higly reccommend

Great overall SUV. Uncompared appearance, a great ride, and a joy to drive. The only thing is the quick response steering is difficult to get used to.

I went from a full size Yukon to the Envoy. I love the car and it performs and handles much better than the larger vehicle. If you have more than one child this car may not be for you.




Best i have ever purchased

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

This midsize SUV has to be one of the smoothest riding American built SUVs of its class. It handles extremely well. Vision of the road is superior as well. The leg room in the front is the best that I test drove. Very happy with it so far.
