2005 GMC Envoy Denali 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Coming from a Honda fan, I couldn't have been more surprised to how much I have grown to love this vehicle. I purchased it when you couldn't pass up the deals and I have been glad ever since. Only back to the dealer once for a very small squeak that was taken care of. Tows our travel trailer as if it wasn't there. Quiet, smooth, powerful, very comfortable, good looking. I believe GM has won me back for future consideration of cars.


Favorite Features

Too many to mention


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy could be better. The nav system needs to be improved to get away from the DVD.

2005 GMC Envoy Denali 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is a solid truck. The power is awesome. It is comfortable on long trips and has a good amount of room. It is fun to drive and handles well and has excellent brakes.


Favorite Features

Acceleration is great. Four settings for drive configurations, 2 wheel, all wheel, 4 wheel high, and 4 wheel low.


Suggested Improvements

Could use a little more leg room in back seat. Gas mileage has averaged barely 15MPG.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

4wd, OnStar, great looks, lots of power.


Suggested Improvements

Less nose dive when braking. Bit firmer suspension, Better gas mileage!

2005 GMC Envoy SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Good Looking SUV. Poor mileage, poor fit and finish. Seat belt not adjustable, high tension. Noisy ride due to air leaks. Transmission shifts from 2WD or AWD into 4WD on its own. Seats are not as comfortable as in my 2003 Envoy.


Favorite Features

No longer a favorite.


Suggested Improvements

Build as advertised. Professional quality.
