Dependability and comfort.

I really enjoy the GMC envoy. It is 15 years old and very reliable. It is equipped with a dependable in-line six cylinder engine. It is fully loaded with power windows, locks, moonroof, and a high end Bose sound system. Even after 15 years, the leather seats are still incredible. With proper maintenance, a GMC envoy could provide decades of dependability and performance. Mine recently made it past 290,000 miles. As it ages, I have noticed the problem areas are more on the electrical side, as opposed to the mechanical. Various sensors will fail from time to time, but many are easy to replace and if you can DIY, they can be relatively inexpensive. It is a good vehicle, for the money.

Gas saving 7 seater with curb appeal.

My 2005 GMC envoy XL has been an excellent ride for me. I have ten grandchildren whom I occasionally transport with me. Not all at once! It seats 7. And still has space in the rear for groceries or backpacks. At other times I fold the seats down and transport my four German shepherds. It has a straight six under the hood and gets great gas mileage with also lots of get up and go! I bought it used and have put 200, 000 miles on it so far. Change the oil every 3000 and give it a tune up routinely. I downsized from a suburban, and I have been very happy with my choice.

2005 GMC envoy XLT is reliable.

I purchased my envoy XLT in 2005. This was a new purchase from a dealer. At the time we had 2 young kids, so seating and cargo space were very important. It has the 3rd row seat for extra passengers and then the 3rd row seats lay down for extra cargo capacity. The seats are very comfortable and the leather seats are remarkably in good condition. They are not cracked at all. Love the fact that it has 2 wheel drive, AWD, 4 hi, and 4 lo! My envoy has 258,000 miles on it and has been very reliable and I would highly recommend purchasing one.
