2006 GMC Envoy XL Denali 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


We transitioned from a van and didn't want to decrease the interior comfort. The Denali is unbelievable - my wife has spent the last week learning all the programming. For buyers, the 2006 Denali is the only way to get V8/DOD, and is only $150 more than comparably equipped SLT version once you figure V8 price into it. Rear seats recline - Tahoe/Yukon don't. XL version allows for open 2nd row, with exit over main floor of car instead of wheelwell. Same price range as Honda Pilot but no comparison. This is true midpoint between full SUV and van. DVD headphones are cordless, BOSE speakers awesome, exterior look is clean.

Best Features

Interior comfort and wood grain add elegance to this soccer mom's vehicle. Ride is ultra-smooth. Strong engine, with lots of power to drive up steep hills where we live.

Worst Features

Cupholders are cheesy, awkward placement, and front cabin storage is almost non-existent compared to our van. Having to manually unlock to open a door-should just open with door pull. Rear visibility poor, especially wtih 3rd row headrests blocking 50% of window. Antenna reception is poor.
