If my experience with the 2005 GMC Envoy SLT 4X4 thus far is any indication of the direction in which General Motors is progressing, I can honestly say that they'll find a repeat customer in me. I find that the GMC Envoy is VERY well equipped. The interior is inviting and well laid out with a multitude of thoughtful features and useful technology. Between the automatic headlamps, the RainSense automatic windshield wipers and all the OnStar features offered, I'm convinced that the only thing my Envoy can't do for me is steer and blow my nose. :-) Mechanically, I find that the engine and transmission are quite impressive. The I6 engine has won much praise from professional reviewers; I fully back every word of it. Admittedly, I was concerned that the transmission has only 4 speeds at its disposal unlike many SUVs in this class (such as my brother's Toyota 4Runner Limited with its 5 speed unit). However, with the smooth power delivery and wide power band of the Envoy's I6 engine, ride performance exceeded my picky standards. The drivetrain pulls devilishly hard on the highway on ramps, yet remains silently civilized in the city. Overall, I'm EXTREMELY satisfied with my decision to purchase the 2005 GMC Envoy SLT 4X4, especially in light of the tremendous bang-for-the-buck factor that comes with the Envoy's very reasonable sticker price. If you're after an SUV with the looks to carry you up to the valet desk at any upscale resort one minute and powerfully haul your jet skis to the lake and down the boat ramp the next, while doing it all with equal aplomb, your search has just ended in the GMC Envoy.
The car performes well and is comfortable. The ride is exceptiiona.
Love it!!!!!!! It handles well and ladies it drives like a car. I searched for a perfect one and I bought it used.
