2005 GMC Envoy Denali 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


As far as build quality and reliability so far, there is no comparison to my previous 2003 XL, it's much better. Some road bumps can be a bit choppy, but that was to be expected on the standard wheel base versus the XL. Handling is gererally very good. The ride is very smooth and exhibits very little body roll when cornering. Ground clearance is quite low for an SUV, so this vehicle is better suited for roughing it out in horrible weather than going off road. With the 5.3L V8 and the short wheel base, performance is better than most vehicles in it's class. Also, it's just so quiet inside, great sound deadening. Interior and exterior looks are really good. This Envoy is so close to being luxury, nearly!

Best Features

Navigation system is one of my favorite features, quite easy to use.

Worst Features

Being able to play a CD when making use of the nav DVD is a must. Put an extra player in the glove box to get a 6 disc changer with NAV system. Give back memory recall option with key or transmitter (like it was, also like everyone else!)
