2009 GMC Envoy SLE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Used to have an '09 Envoy SLE 4 wheel drive, loved the car but due to financial reasons I traded this vehicle in for a more affordable, efficient vehicle.
The drive was smooth, Bose stereo was good, even a Hitch came standard although I never used it.


Best Features

4.2L I6, ability to switch from 2wd to any of the 4wd modes, smooth ride


Worst Features

as the title stated, GM could've done more with the Envoy before killing it off after '09, such as: Standard Driver Info Display even in the SLE model, Updated radios with an AUX jack, at least a 5-speed automatic, better throttle response, although the ride is smooth the ride could've had a nice balance b/w smooth and firm with more agile handling, heated rear seats in the Denali model, dash could've been modernized a bit, at least w/ a refreshed design and better materials

2009 GMC Envoy SLE 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This vehicle only has 2 cup holders for driver and passenger. The trailblazer has 3. There is only carpet for your left foot bump out on drivers side. The trailblazer had a cover over the carpet. The drivers seat is to big. It makes it difficult to get at the pockets in the door. The front bumper is flawed. There is no foam behind the bumper. In two spots where there is a support the metal pushes against the bumper causing it to bulge out. Car was only 2 months old when this was noticed. Dealer was suppose to replace bumper but they bondo'd the bumper. You could see where it was bondo'd. I had a fit.

2009 GMC Envoy SLE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have owned new suv's for almost 20 years. Many makes and models. The envoy is the best in it's size. Where else can you find a 4x4 that will pull over 5000 pounds and still have all the creature comforts. I was driving a low mileage trail blazer when i found out they were stopping the envoy and trailblazer. I immediately started looking for a 4x4. it took almost a month before the right suv and deal came in. Why GM stopped making it is one of many reasons GM is in trouble. They felt that the Acadia was a replacement...Go drive one and you will find out how bad it's visability is and lack of towing.


Best Features

comfort, towing & rugged looks


Worst Features

Better cup holders and standard running boards

2009 GMC Envoy Denali 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We had a 2007 Envoy Denali and liked it so well that when our lease was up we purchased a 2009 Envoy Denali - Cream of the crop - dependable, decent gas mileage and ride. No problems here!


Best Features

V-8 on-demand engine, heated seats, cornering lights and sitting up high so a short person can see out.


Worst Features

NONE - unless it would be to keep making them. Crossovers are nice but don't compare.

2009 GMC Envoy SLT 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I enjoy the upgraded cabin and seating. Controls are very ergonomic, and bluetooth is a real plus for this car. Sound system is top notch. Good acceleration and braking. 4WD is a dream. Broke the SUV in with a 2000 mile trip and initial gas mileage was 18 mpg for city/highway. GM finally got the Envoy/Trailazer right, and they discontinue it. Go figure.


Best Features

Upgraded cabin and seats, cornering lamps, Bluetooth for cell phone so you don't have to use OnStar minutes for hands free calling.


Worst Features

Add I-Pod capability, reduce wind noise, more in-cabin storage. but GM isn't making these anymore so suggestions are a moot point.
