Having owned a Ford Explorer, I have that as a comparison for my new Envoy. To be honest, there is no comparison. The ride is light years smoother, and despite the professional's viewpoint, it handles corners just fine. It is not a sports car. I'm very pleased with the interior room, and it has a great sound system. The XM radio is great on trips. My wife is the truck's prime driver, and knowing that she has OnStar puts my mind at ease. I highly recommend this vehicle.
OnStar, XM Radio, sunroof, and the Bose sound system.
Gas mileage is not the greatest. 17-18 MPG local driving and 20 on the highway. Also, some of the plastic wood grain trim could be eliminated.
