4dr SUV 275-horsepower 4.2L I6 4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range

Why the 2003 GMC Envoy?

Cargo capacity

With the rear seats down i could fit all of my childs items (including stroller) as well as groceries, and personal items needed for regular matinence of the vehicle. Great space to move furniture also.

Ride smoothness

Very Car like ride, but very sturdy on unpaved surfaces. I had 4WD, but it seemed more ment for unpaved roads, not going back packing in the forest. W

Front seat support & comfort

Seats were wide, comfortable and supportive.

Front seat room

Felt very spacious and homly feel to them.

Feature availability

Seat heaters, CD and tape, Dual climate controls, rear climate controls. Many outlets...it was a well balanced car for creature comfort and long trips.

Why Not the 2003 GMC Envoy?

Powertrain performance

the 6 cyl felt a bit animic for the cars size. Passing on the free way was a but difficult.

Controls and instruments

the big button controls were great for people wearing gloves, but their location was a bit off. I felt like i had to stretch to reach the raido and climate controls.

Fuel economy

I average about 16 MPG in town and 20 on free way on a good day (depends on trafic and road altitude changes, sometimes it was better than 20mpg).

Reliability & durability

4WD switch failed twice in one year, when the switch failed it would cause problems with driveablilty. Happend mainly during wet weather. Fan clutch also failed twice. Fixed it myself but both pains in the but.

Safety & braking

Breaks felt too soft for the size of the car. Stoping was not the best during wet weather either!
