2006 GMC ENVOY SLT
By CJAvon on
2006 GMC Envoy SLT 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Have been driving my Envoy for three months now, had Jeep Gr.Cherokees for the last three years so that's my basis for comparison (maybe a bit unfair). The Envoy has a smoother ride but the difference in power vs the V8 Jeep is like night and day, towing my 2500 lb boat was sluggish. Head room is tight with the sun roof, only 1/2" headroom (i am 6 foot)with the seat down full. Very comfortable to sit in and visability is good. The floor mats are on the cheap side. 2nd row legroom is better than the Jeep. I get 18.7 mpg average with 85% highway driving. Considerably less expensive than the Jeep so if you can do without the towing power I would recommend it.
The rain sensing wipers are cool, the sunroof is quiet when open and driving at speed (Jeep was deafening). Premium Bose sound system is very nice. The information displays are good and the steering wheel buttons are convenient.
Doors need to be slammed to shut tight, need to be heavier. A better odds and ends tray, the current one is too small and seems like an afterthought. Better floor mats, drivers side is wearing out already (3 mos). Front seats need to be lower for tall drivers.
