Its a 4.2 liter V6, has plenty of power the transmission works great , smooth shifts, very attractive , reliable, fun to drive , 4WD works great , The SLE trim model is cloth seats , FM/AM radio, power seats, OnStar, Alloy wheels, The SLt model is a step up with leather heated seats and Bose speakers, Envoy Denali has entertainment system with navigation and bose speakers and comes with a powerful 5.3L V8. I have a 2003 SLE model and it has 235,xxx miles on it and is the best car we have ever owned , its never had any issues and continues to be a great daily driver. The GMC Envoy is a great SUV to buy, you will get more for your money than any other vehicle.
Never, ever buy this piece of junk. I put 3 transmissions in this SUV over the years!!! I could maybe see one, but 3? At $3500 a pop, I could have bought another nice used car with that money. I also just got back from the mechanic for the millionth time. This time the car just refuses to start. He checked the battery, alternator, and starter. Everything was fine. It just doesn't want to start sometimes. How about electrical issues? More issues than a magazine rack. This car is a lemon plain and simple. I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy. There were about 8 recalls and some electrical stuff never worked right. Trading this in next week and it may be the happiest day of my life.
It has an awesome turn radius, which is why I bought it in the first place. Comfy ride and it took me to the mountains when I needed it. Usually.
We picked up our used 2003 Envoy a few weeks ago. It is the seven passenger model with 4x4 and every option imaginable. Everything works on the truck as it should. I read this vehicle is known for electrical problems but we have not experienced any. Previous owner took good care of it, as we plan to. Tried out the 4x4 the other night in the snow, and it was sure footed and felt safe on the road. Very pleased so far. Looking forward to towing our little trailer this summer for camping fun!
Comfortable leather interior, 7 passenger seating, 4x4 is great. Stereo sounds good, 6 disc cd changer is a bonus. I like sitting up a bit higher, and appreciate the extra room for the kids to bring whatever it is they need to bring along.
Wish the reverse lamps were brighter. Have some LED bulbs on order from Ebay which should take care of that.
