2004 GMC Envoy XL SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My wife and I were looking for a big
vehicle for all of our hauling and the
two children and their friends. We had
the opportunity to drive the Envoy and
fell in love. We were a little
concerned with the Six Cyl 4.2 Engine
but WOW are we impressed now. We have
never felt like more power was needed
and the fuel economy is outstanding!!
I have friends that have driven these
veh's hard and the mileage is in line
with the V8 models but I drive very
conservativiely and love the ride. You
drive this truck like you should with
precious cargo on board and you will
love the ride, power and MPG!


Best Features

The ride and the Engine! The air suspension is like nothing I have owned before. The engine is the best! I get 25 mpg on teh highway and 18 to 20 around town! This thing is huge at 5500 lbs. Yet is rides and runs like most trucks half its size.


Worst Features

I have no suggested improvements. This truck is perfect as far as my wife and family are concerned. Big and safe, Great ride and powerful. What else is there?

2004 GMC Envoy XL SLE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The Envoy XL is an outstanding luxury
SUV with lots of room for full grown
children (6' plus) and adults.
The ride is outstanding and better than
any luxury car (mercedes, cadillac,
buick). Love the moonroof feature with
the tinted glass and being able to open
up. Superb handling in a SUV. Have had
a great experience with the car, but...
have had a "Service Engine Soon"
light. The dealership has worked on it
4 times and it keeps appearing, but the
SUV has not shown ANY degradation in
performance and handling. GM has said
this is one of only four to have this
problem. Other than the light, I have
loved driving it, and plan to continue
to or have another.


Best Features

Handling, ride and seating comfort. The noise level and the 3rd seat option and the configuration of the a/c great. comparable to a large SUV. Love the Red Medallic color and cloth seating on SLE. Like the storage tray system.


Worst Features

Console needs to be reconfigured because to hold large cups. The fuel economy on the six is OK, but probably would be better with an eight.

2004 GMC Envoy XL SLE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

its good and reliable. get it or be
sorry. there is nothing that this
thing can not do. it handles
perfectly, heats and cools without
problems and gets some of the best gas
mileage that i've seen for an SUV.
looked at Pilot, Trailblazer, Yukon,
Explorer, Durango and 4Runner. This
vehicle tops all the others. It run
perfectly and while being an american
made car hardly shows it. HERE'S TO
THE REBIRTH OF AMERICAN QUALITY CARS.


Best Features

XM Radio is amazing but is available for purchase ouside of the vehicles so it is not exactly a determining factor. Styling and engine power is very good though.


Worst Features

If your going to get the SLE, get the 1SB package. Basic model has many ammenities yet lacks power mirrors, cruise control and rear defogger. Get a security system and look into the side airbags. ONSTAR is good but hardly warrants the $700 price. These are minor problems though &are
