The GMC Envoy is a mid-size SUV that was produced by General Motors from the 1998 to the 2009 model years. Adopting a nameplate used by GM Canada, the Envoy was the direct counterpart of the Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV; two generations of the model line were sold.

General Motors assembled the model line at its Moraine Assembly (Moraine, Ohio) and Oklahoma City Assembly (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma). both facilities were closed by 2008, leading to the discontinuation of the model line. The Envoy was not directly replaced in the GMC model line as General Motors transitioned its smaller SUVs to unibody-chassis designs. introducing the smaller GMC Terrain and larger GMC Acadia.

First generation (1998–2000)[edit]

The first generation GMC Envoy was introduced for the 1998 model year. Introduced a year before the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, the Envoy was the highest-trim version of the GMC Jimmy SUV. In line with the Oldsmobile Bravada, the Envoy was fitted with a leather-trim interior, floor-mounted shifter, and a largely monochromatic exterior with aluminum-alloy wheels. In line with the TrailBlazer and the Bravada, the Envoy trim was offered only in the five-door version.

The Envoy had many extra features not available on the regular Jimmy 4-door including: a remote trunk release, heated driver's and passenger's seats, as well as a Bose sound system. Optional features included: a power sunroof, a panic alarm, an anti-theft system, and a power front driver & passenger seat.[1]

GMC ended sales of the first generation Envoy after the 2000 model year as the division adopted the name to replace the entire Jimmy SUV line for 2002.

Safety features[edit]

The 1998-2000 GMC Envoy had a four-wheel ABS braking system standard as well as standard front driver and passenger airbags. However, the Envoy received a Poor rating in the IIHS frontal offset crash test.[citation needed]

Second generation (2002–2009)[edit]

The second generation GMC Envoy was introduced in early 2001 as a 2002 model (skipping the 2001 model year). In line with the Chevrolet Trailblazer replacing the Chevrolet (S-10) Blazer, the 2002 Envoy replaced the GMC Jimmy five-door.

The Envoy was Motor Trend magazine's Sport/Utility of the Year for 2002. The 4200 Vortec 4200 engine I6 engine was named one of Ward's 10 Best Engines from 2002 to 2005.

Chassis[edit]

The second generation GMC Envoy uses the body-on-frame GMT360 chassis architecture. Ending its commonality with GM compact pickup trucks, the GMT360 chassis was designed from the ground up for SUV use. The frame rails are hydroformed and fully boxed for their entire length. The wheelbase grew to 113 inches (six inches longer than the first generation); for the first time, an extended-wheelbase version was introduced with a 129-inch wheelbase length (1 inch shorter than the GMC Yukon XL).

The front suspension used a double-wishbone independent configuration with Bilstein shock absorbers. The rear suspension featured a 5-link solid rear axle; load-leveling air suspension was an option for the rear axle.

The second-generation Envoy adopted four-wheel disc brakes as standard equipment.

Powertrain[edit]

For its 2002 debut, the GMT360 Envoy received an all-new standard engine, with a Vortec 4200 4.2L inline-6 replacing the previous 4.3L V6. The first inline-6 from GM in North America since 1984, the "Atlas" engine produced 270 hp (80 more than its V6 predecessor). Beginning in 2003, the Envoy XL could be equipped with an optional 290 hp 5.3L V8. For 2005, the 5.3L V8 was updated to include the Displacement on Demandvariable-displacement system (using 4 of 8 cylinders during low-load situations), increasing output to 300 hp.

Alongside a standard rear-wheel drive layout, the GMT360 Envoy was offered with either permanent 2-wheel drive or a 4x4 "Shift On-Demand" system, offering 2-wheel drive, Automatic 4-wheel drive, and High-range and Low-range 4-wheel drive (the latter, in 2.69:1 reduction). Two rear axles were offered, a rear "Posi-Trac" limited-slip differential and an Eaton automatic rear locking differential.

Trim[edit]

Throughout its production run, the Envoy was available in three different trim levels:

The base SLE trim level was produced from 2002 to 2009, and included a plentiful amount of standard equipment, including full power equipment (power front seats, power door locks, power windows, and power mirrors), keyless entry, cloth seating surfaces, an A/M-F/M stereo with single-disc CD player (later, with satellite radio), a four-speaker audio system, OnStar, aluminum-alloy wheels, a full-size spare tire with black-painted steel spare wheel, a 65/35 split-folding rear bench seat, faux carbon fiber interior trim panels, a cruise control, a dual-zone, manual climate control system, the 4.2L Vortec Inline Six-Cylinder (I6) gasoline engine, and a four-speed automatic transmission. Optional features included an in-dash, six-disc CD changer, a Bose six-speaker premium amplified audio system, a rear DVD entertainment system by Panasonic, a security system, polished aluminum-alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, luxury leather-trimmed seating surfaces, dual heated front bucket seats, and a power moonroof.

The uplevel SLT trim level, available from 2002 to 2009, added extra luxury and convenience features to the base SLE trim, including a six-disc, in-dash CD changer, a Bose six-speaker premium amplified audio system, OnStar, polished aluminum-alloy wheels, luxury leather-trimmed seating surfaces, dual heated front bucket seats, Driver Information Center, faux wood interior trim panels, a universal garage door opener system with a travel note recorder, a dual-zone, automatic climate control system, and a driver's memory system for driver's seat, mirrors, and radio preset settings. Optional features included an in-dash, touchscreen GPS navigation system (later models), a rear DVD entertainment system by Panasonic, and a power moonroof.

The top-of-the-line Denali trim level, available from 2005 to 2008, was the most luxurious trim level of the Envoy, adding additional luxury features to the already luxurious SLT trim. Additional features included additional faux wood interior trim accents, a two-tone, luxury leather-trimmed interior, a 'Denali' emblem for the steering wheel, the 5.3L Vortec V8 gasoline engine, a power single-pane moonroof, unique chrome-plated aluminum-alloy wheels, satellite radio, and a chrome mesh front upper grille. Additional options included an in-dash, touchscreen GPS navigation system and a rear DVD entertainment system.

Body[edit]

Replacing the GMC Jimmy completely, the second-generation GMC Envoy was offered solely as a five-door SUV. Within the GMT360 model family, the Envoy shares its body most closely with the Isuzu Ascender; the two model lines differ primarily in their front bumpers, grille and side body moldings.

To accommodate third-row seating within the model line, an extended-length Envoy XL was introduced. Sixteen inches longer than the standard Envoy, the Envoy XL effectively bridged the gap in length between the full-size Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs. Distinguished by body-color C-pillars, the XL received its own rear door stampings. For 2004, GMC introduced the 5-passenger GMC Envoy XUV, combining the functionality of a pickup truck and an SUV. Derived from the Envoy XL, the XUV used a retractable rear roof and a folding "mid-gate" to create a plastic-lined reconfigurable cargo area.

Model history[edit]

2003[edit]

For 2003, to lower the price of the model line, GMC began to offer several options as stand-alone features (instead of grouping them together); front-seat side airbags were demoted to optional status. The headlight switch was revised, allowing an override of the Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs). The head restraints were revised from 4-way to 2-way movement.

A 290 hp 5.3L V8 was introduced as an option for standard-length Envoys and was the standard engine for the Envoy XL; all versions received a 22-gallon fuel tank.

2004[edit]

The model year was largely carryover for the Envoy SUV. For the interior, adjustable pedals became an option, alongside XM Satellite Radio and an optional DVD-based navigation system. Derived from the Envoy XL, the Envoy XUV was a retractable-roof vehicle, combining the design capability of a SUV with a pickup truck.

2005[edit]

Following the discontinuation of the Oldsmobile Bravada, GMC expanded its Denali model range to the Envoy for 2005, including both versions of the model line. Along with its own grille design and chromed alloy wheels, the interior received standard leather trim, heated power seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and upgraded wood trim.

For all versions of the Envoy, GMC introduced revised seats; optional side airbags were replaced by full-length side curtain airbags (covering all three rows of seats in the Envoy XL). The DVD navigation system option was updated, adopting a touchscreen interface.

The 5.3L V8 was upgraded with a variable-displacement Displacement on Demand system, using four of eight cylinders in low-workload driving.

2006[edit]

For 2006, Stabilitrak stability control was made a standard feature alongside cruise control, OnStar, and a tire pressure monitoring system. The Envoy Denali received updated 18-inch alloy wheels.

Following low sales of the vehicle, the Envoy XUV was dropped from the model line for 2006.

2007[edit]

Following the discontinuation of the Envoy XL, all versions of the model line were now offered with five-passenger seating.[2]

2008[edit]

For 2008, side-curtain airbags (introduced as an option in 2005) were made standard.

2009[edit]

For 2009, few functional changes were made, with Bluetooth wireless technology for wireless phones added as a new option.[2]

Following the closure of Moraine Assembly, GMC ended sales of the model line after the 2009 model year, with its role in the GMC line largely succeeded by the GMC Terrain CUV wagon.

Recall[edit]

In 2012, General Motors had recalled more than 258,000 SUVs in the U.S. and Canada to fix short-circuits in power window and door lock switches that could cause fires. The recall covered Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7X SUVs from the 2006 and 2007 model years. The SUVs were sold or registered in 20 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and Canada, where salt and other chemicals are used to clear roads in the winter.[3]

Variants[edit]

Envoy XL[edit]

From 2002 to 2006, GMC offered the extended-wheelbase Envoy XL SUV. Sixteen inches longer in wheelbase and length than the standard-length Envoy, the longer body of the XL was designed for third-row seating. To improve access and rear-seat room, the roofline over the third-row seat was raised (shrouded slightly with a standard roof rack).

Extended to a 129-inch wheelbase, the Envoy XL was only one inch shorter than the full-size Yukon XL (Chevrolet Suburban) in wheelbase, conceding to its full-size counterparts in width. The Envoy XL (also produced as a Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT and Isuzu Ascender) served as the basis of the GMC Envoy XUV (see below).

Following the closure of the Oklahoma City Assembly facility, the Envoy XL was dropped from the model line, with its 7-passenger midsize role largely replaced by the GMC Acadia CUV wagon (which also replaced the GMC Safari).

Envoy XUV[edit]

For 2004 and 2005, GMC offered the five-passenger Envoy XUV retractable-roof vehicle, unique to the division. Similar in concept to the GMC Terracross concept vehicle, the Envoy XUV modernized the retractable roof concept of the 1960s Studebaker Wagonaire, combining it with a "midgate" (similar to the Chevrolet Avalanche); GMC marketed the design as the combination of a SUV and a pickup truck.

The midgate (with a retractable rear window) allowed users to partition the plastic-lined cargo area into a waterproof space that could be hosed out for cleaning (with a drainage system). Users had the ability to configure the interior to transport large cargo; along with a retractable rear window of its own (to access the cargo area), the midgate folded down to enlarge cargo capacity. To accommodate tall items, the XUV included a retractable roof panel. In line with a large station wagon, the rear tailgate was two-way with retractable rear glass (side-hinged or bottom-hinged).

Selling far under sales projections, GM ended sales of the XUV before the end of the 2005 model year.

Discontinuation[edit]

The Envoy (along with the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, Buick Rainier, Isuzu Ascender, and Saab 9-7X) were discontinued by GM during the 2009 model year. On December 23, 2008, Moraine Assembly ended production, with a white GMC Envoy as its final vehicle.[4] The closing of the last factory that manufactured the trucks was the subject of an emotional 2009 HBO documentary: The Last Truck: Closing of a GM Plant.

While Chevrolet revived the TrailBlazer nameplate as both an SUV and as a compact CUV; neither vehicle has been produced with a GMC counterpart (the Envoy nameplate remains retired).

2005 GMC Envoy Review

Masculine, upscale midsize sport/ute

GMC Envoy Full Overview

The GMC Envoy was launched for 2002 as an upscale, "professional grade" iteration of the prolific General Motors GMT-360 midsize SUV platform that has spawned the Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, Oldsmobile Bravada, and most recently, the Saab 9-7x. The Envoy's high feature content, strong powertrains, impressive on- and off-road ability, and varied work talents earned it praise and distinction. For 2005, the Envoy range is expanded with new Envoy Denali and Denali XL models. As with other GMC truck lines, Denali models tout upgraded interior trim and bigger standard engines. Most noteworthy of the Denali add-ons is the 5.3-liter/300-horse V-8. When it comes to fuel efficiency, Displacement on Demand, which deactivates certain cylinders while cruising, compensates for the V-8 XL's weight penalty. Other trim levels are equipped standard with a 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine making 275 horsepower. Both powerplants can drive the rear wheels, with part-time four-wheel-drive a desirable upgrade. Unfortunately, 2005 will be the last model year for the transformable Envoy XUV. The idea of an SUV that could turn into a pickup sounded brilliant in theory, but the miniscule bed opening left auto shoppers wondering how many giraffes they would possibly need to haul, and slow sales of this pricey variant have prompted GMC to cancel production.

The Envoy wears conservative sheetmetal, giving the traditional SUV silhouette a tasteful, even upscale appearance, with design symmetry evident in the side glass and muscular fender bulges. In keeping with the restrained aesthetic, the front fascia incorporates large headlights and a simple, attractive grille. Aptly named XL models are considerably bigger than the base Envoy, with a 16-inch-longer wheelbase and overall length. Stretching 207.6 inches bumper to bumper, the XL is almost nine inches longer than a GMC Yukon.

Key body details help differentiate Envoy models from one another: The XL has a much longer second door than the base model, and its rear cargo section is shaped differently. The XUV has a unique roof and rear-hatch treatment in dark gray plastic. And the Denalis now are distinguished by a perforated, chrome grille that resembles a battery-powered shaver, as well as a fresh front airdam design. Denali models also get 17-inch polished aluminum wheels and a load-leveling rear suspension. Towing heavy loads can cause traditional spring suspensions to sag, reducing ride quality, steering control, and towing ability. GMC engineers have addressed this problem by installing an air-spring rear suspension. Inflating the air spring prevents sagging and returns ride height to normal, resulting in a more refined ride, both laden and unladen.

The interior of the Envoy is more upscale than its Chevrolet stablemate's, with a decidedly masculine appearance. Faux satin-nickel gauges and air-vent bezels are the most prominent interior features. GMC designers tried hard to hide the fact that most of the interior components come from the corporate parts bin by burying them deep in simulated wood trim. They achieved moderate success, but pieces such as the climate control don't look integrated into the center console. The controls may not be pretty, but their layout is familiar and easy to use. Abundant seams around trim elements, dash components, and passenger airbag detract from the presentation.

Seats come in cloth or optional leather, but neither provides the comfort seen in other like-priced competitors. These perches provide almost no side bolstering for lateral support, something missed on long trips. The seating position is high, but there's plenty of head- and shoulder room for six-foot-plus drivers. The second-row and optional third-row seats have ample room, but are just as uncomfortable as the fronts, with a very upright seating position. Rear-seat passengers may forget their discomfort while watching the optional DVD entertainment system or listening to the optional Bose sound system with in-dash CD changer.

All Envoys feature dual-stage front driver and passenger airbags. To lessen the possibility of injury caused by deployment, the airbags fire at a reduced rate for modest impacts and more quickly for severe crashes. Side curtain airbags, which protect passengers' heads in a collision or rollover, are optional. Stopping the 4,800-pound SUV are four-wheel disc brakes with dual-piston calipers and ABS. An OnStar system with recently improved voice recognition software comes standard on all models. Conspicuously absent from the options list are stability and traction control. GM remains one of the few manufacturers that don't offer stability control on their midsize SUVs--both Toyota and Ford include it as standard. Thankfully, this feature will be standard equipment on 2006 Envoys.

General Motors has endowed the base Envoy with a rather high-tech powerplant, a 4.2-liter, dual-cam straight-six that makes 275 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. This engine even uses variable cam phasing, a technique that boosts top-end power. But there's no such wizardry for the 5.3-liter/300-horse pushrod V-8, standard in Denali models and optional in the Envoy XL. Both engines use the same four-speed automatic transmission. It's a shame GM doesn't provide a five- or six-speed automatic.

From the transmission, power is either routed directly to the rear wheels or through an optional transfer case for four-wheel drive. The 4WD system has three modes: rear-wheel high, four-wheel high, and four-wheel low. A locking rear differential, to help get the SUV out from between a literal rock and a hard place, is optional. With the proper powertrain combination, the Envoy can tow up to 7,100 pounds (rear-drive V-8 models), making it one of the most capable mid-size SUVs on the market.

Overall, the ride quality of the Envoy is decent. The basic suspension soaks up choppy pavement well for a truck that uses body-on-frame architecture, with more refinement available via the optional air suspension. The only drawback to the comfortable ride is the lack of feel from the road, as is the case with most midsize SUVs. Dull, over-boosted steering exaggerates the effect, along with some body roll through dynamic maneuvers in standard-suspension versions. Road noise is low, especially in the Denali models, which use extra sound insulation. Adequate acceleration is supplied from the torque-rich engine, although it would be a stretch to call the six-cylinder Envoy quick. Shifting is smooth, but another ratio in the gearbox would help both acceleration and fuel economy. While the V-8 provides more torque, it feels only marginally faster fitted to the heavier Envoy configurations; the eight-cylinder engine's appeal is seen in its towing ability.

The GMC Envoy appeals the domestic-vehicle loyalist looking for a right-sized sport/ute with a classy, masculine flavor. Numerous variations allow shoppers to find the right bodystyle and powertrain combination for their needs and budget. The supersized XL bridges the mid- and full-size segments for shoppers who need a third row of seats, but who don't relish the parking and fuel-filling challenges of a true larger-scale vehicle. The Envoy makes easy work of hauling a trailer, with either powertrain. For those with limited towing demands, the six-cylinder provides a good compromise between performance and economy. There are a numerous comfort features to go along with the utility, and the upmarket Denali trim provides an even better dressed interior and abundant convenience gadgets. As the years have passed, the Envoy concedes refinement leadership--especially in its interior--to newer competitors. The Envoy is further hindered by an IntelliChoice Ownership Cost Value Rating that sees most iterations fall between Average and Worse than Average.

Strong, capable, all-American midsize sport/ute, the Envoy combines the comfort features, overall packaging, and utility to thrive with an active family.

What's HOT:

+ Peppy six-cylinder engine

+ Denali has abundant features

+ V-8 offers good towing power

What's NOT:

- Unsupportive seats

- Dated, seam-filled interior

- No stability control offered in 2005

New for 2005, the Denali trim is now available for Envoy, adding more comfort and style. Displacement on Demand offers some fuel savings for the optional V-8.

Curtain airbags, MP3-capable audio system, and air suspension are all desirable options. Those who have a tendency to get lost will love the easy-to-use touch-screen navigation system. XL trim offers plenty of space, even for third-row occupants.

Available in standard-wheelbase and long-wheelbase (XL) versions, the new Envoy Denali gets GMC’s luxury treatment as well as a standard V-8 engine. Similar to the full-size Yukon Denali SUVs, the midsize Envoys receive a billet-like chrome-plated grille, unique fascias front and rear, body-color running boards, and polished aluminum wheels. Inside, the Envoy Denalis come with Nuance leather, a Bose stereo system, burl wood grain trim, and satin metallic accents. While lesser Envoys come standard with an in-line six under the hood, the Denalis get a 5.3-liter Vortec V-8 pumping out 290 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. In 2005, the Envoy XL Denali will come standard with a new version of the 5.3 that has Displacement on Demand (DOD), which shuts down up to four cylinders in certain driving conditions to save up to eight percent in fuel. The Envoy Denalis will arrive in showrooms about a year from now.

2005 GMC ENVOY LINEUP ENHANCED WITH DENALI MODELS

Hot on the heels of innovative Envoy XUV, introduced in 2004, GMC Envoy introduces the uplevel Envoy Denali and the Envoy XL Denali for 2005. The new models continue the trend of continuous refinement for the Envoy lineup that began with the vehicle’s introduction in model year 2002.

"The Denali name has become synonymous with style, comfort and performance and the Envoy Denali and Envoy XL Denali bring those desirable attributes to the midsize utility segment," said Jim Bunnell, Pontiac-GMC general manager. "And they provide the capability you expect from a GMC."

In addition to the new Envoy Denali and Envoy XL Denali, the ’05 Envoy lineup adds three new exterior colors: Superior Blue Metallic, Emerald Jewel Metallic and Steel Gray Metallic.

Denali details

The Envoy Denali and Envoy XL Denali are imbued with instantly recognizable premium styling appointments pioneered by the original Yukon Denali. The most recognizable of these is the signature chrome-plated grille with “honeycomb” texture. The Envoy Denali models receive their own version of this iconic styling cue, which is accented with a surrounding chrome ring for an overall look of machine-crafted billet metal.

An all-new, body-color single-piece front fascia also is part of the styling package and has a large, horizontal air intake flanked by round foglamps. The foglamps are set deeper in the fascia and accented with 2.5 inch- (6.35-cm) deep bright bezels. The front fascia also includes an integrated air dam to channel more air to the standard Vortec 5300 powertrain.

Attention to detail for all the elements comprising the front fascia and grille include tighter gap tolerances, enhancing the Denali models’ refined, precision-crafted appearance.

"The tighter tolerances contribute as much to the premium appearance as the styling enhancements," said Bunnell. "Improved build quality is apparent to the eye and underscores GMC's professional grade philosophy."

A new rear fascia is part of the Envoy Denali and Envoy XL Denali design package. It has been lowered to visually conceal the vehicles’ undercarriage components and, like the front fascia, its gap tolerances have been tightened. Air deflector extensions surrounding the trailer hitch area also help create a lower look for the vehicles, and the rear step pad that leads to the liftgate opening carries the circular pattern of the Denali grille – this time with dime-sized embossments that form a rubberized mat.

Integrated running boards are painted body color and also feature rubberized mats embossed with the Denali circle pattern. The boards prevent stones and other debris from being kicked up onto the vehicle’s exterior surface. To ensure exceptional fit and finish, the running boards are mounted so that they appear as seamless extensions of the rockers.

Other exterior design cues for the Envoy Denali and Envoy XL Denali include thinner, body-color side moldings, body-color outside mirrors (heated and with integrated turn signal indicator), and polished forged aluminum 17-inch wheels.

Nuance leather seats immediately signal the accommodating environments of the Envoy Denali and Envoy XL Denali models. Leather is used to accent additional interior items, including the steering wheel, shift boot and parking brake boot. Selective use of satin nickel and burl wood grain accents also complement the upscale passenger compartment.

The leather seating surfaces, which include all positions in the first and second rows, are tailored with French seam stitching, with particular attention paid to ensure the sew lines and seat trenches are as small and tight as possible. This increases the stitches-per-inch ratio of the seats, enhancing both the finely crafted appearance and long-term durability. The increased number of stitches decreases the chance of a “stretched seam” look after several years of use.

Driver and front passenger seats have standard eight-way power adjustments and are heated. A new, burl wood grain accent, richer and darker in appearance, surrounds interior components in the “center stack” and console. It also is used in trim surrounding the light switches and the switches on the door armrests. This upscale accent also is shared with Envoy SLT models in 2005.

Satin nickel metallic accents – also used in other Envoy models – are found around the instrument cluster, the shifter base and HVAC vents. Denali models receive an additional satin nickel accent that runs vertically down the center of the shifter head.

The steering wheel has the look and feel of premium execution and craftsmanship. The four-spoke wheel incorporates leather covering with French stitch seams in the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions, with real wood insets at the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions. Subtle chrome accents ring the wheel where the leather and wood meet and a jewel-like Denali badge is positioned over the horn pad.

Other interior appointments include brushed aluminum Denali-logo sill plates, a map pocket on the back of the driver’s seat and two interior color choices: all-ebony or tone-on-tone light gray – a mixture of light gray on lower surfaces and darker gray on upper surfaces.

Envoy Denali and Envoy XL Denali are engineered to deliver outstanding quietness. To that end, these new models have up to 20 additional applications of acoustic material treatments designed to deliver exceptionally low interior noise levels. They include:

  • Laminated windshield and front door glass: An acoustical-grade vinyl sheet is layered between the windshield glass laminates, resulting in noise reduction of approximately 13 percent. The front side-door glass uses a non-acoustical vinyl sheet, yet yields similar noise reduction levels.

  • Front-of-dash sound absorber: Constructed of a two-layer, non-woven fiberglass material, this component closes openings in the front-of-dash panel, virtually eliminating the passage of noise or air from the engine compartment. Noise is reduced up to two decibels with this sound absorber.

  • Exhaust resonator: Achieves quieter performance with an acoustic chamber tuned to the Vortec 5300’s specific resonant frequency – effectively canceling much of the exhaust noise.

  • Sound absorber insulators: Like the front-of-dash absorber, more than a dozen similar insulators are used throughout the vehicles in such places as doors, pillars, body openings and speaker areas, to ensure noise from wind and other sources is muted.

Envoy powertrains

Powering the Envoy XUV, Envoy Denali and Envoy XL Denali is the robust Vortec 5300 V-8. It also is available in the Envoy XL until the Envoy XL Denali is introduced in spring 2005. Rated at 300 horsepower (224 kw) and 330 lb.-ft. of torque (447 Nm), the Vortec 5300 delivers excellent step-off acceleration and a broad torque range that gives the vehicles segment-leading towing capability – up to 7,100 pounds (3,221 kg) in 2WD Envoy XL and Envoy XL Denali models.

Vortec 5300 engines in the long wheelbase models of the 2005 Envoy family are equipped with GM’s fuel-saving Displacement on Demand (DOD) technology. DOD technology enables fuel economy gains of up to 8 percent in certain light-load driving conditions by reducing the number of cylinders engaged in the combustion process. A sophisticated, next-generation engine controller determines when to deactivate cylinders, allowing the engine to maintain vehicle speed in lighter-load conditions such as highway cruising. When the cylinders are deactivated, the engine effectively operates as a V-4, with alternate cylinders on each cylinder bank disabled. The engine returns to V-8 mode the instant the controller determines the vehicle speed or load requires additional power. The process is seamless and virtually imperceptible.

"This is cutting-edge technology that makes a noticeable difference in the fuel consumption of an SUV," said Craig Bierley, GMC product director. "GMC's legendary capabilities have not been sacrificed whatsoever - in fact, DOD ensures the promise of performance and makes it more efficient."

The standard engine on Envoy, Envoy XL and Envoy XUV is the award-winning Vortec 4200 4.2L 24-valve, dual-overhead-cam inline six-cylinder engine that provides 275 horsepower (205 kw) and 275 lb-ft. (373 Nm) of torque.

The Envoy Denali and Envoy XL Denali, as well as other Envoy models, are available in two-wheel drive and with Autotrac four-wheel drive.

Entertainment choices

Envoy customers will have yet another audio choice for 2005: an MP3 player, in addition to AM/FM stereo and CD players. For 2005, Envoy’s navigation radio features a touch screen, making it more convenient to use, and OnStar will be included as part of an available option package on all retail units for 2005. XM Satellite Radio also is available.

XM Satellite Radio (continental U.S. only) provides more than 120 coast-to-coast, digital-quality channels of original commercial-free music and premier news, sports and talk as well as advanced traffic and weather information for select major metropolitan areas nationwide. Consumers can subscribe to the basic service for $9.99 a month. In addition, GM customers with GMAC financing can choose to include the XM subscription in their car payments.

Also available is a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.

Comfortable and capable

Surprisingly roomy and comfortable, all Envoy models provide exceptional first- and second-row head, leg, shoulder and hip room. And the third-row seat in extended-length Envoy models can comfortably accommodate 95 percent of all adult males.

For extra loading flexibility, all Envoy rear seats fold flat and on extended-length Envoys, it results in 107.4 cubic feet (3,041L) of flat-loading maximum cargo space.

Envoy XL and Envoy Denali XL also feature a highly versatile rear cargo panel, with adjustable height levels. It can be used to extend the flat load floor in the rear when the seats are folded, raised for privacy in concealing items stored beneath it, or simply stowed or removed to maximize cargo space.

Envoy XUV, an exclusive GMC product, is the most adaptable SUV ever offered with unprecedented levels of versatility, functional innovation and state-of-the-art technology. Envoy XUV sets a new benchmark in sport utility capability with a host of industry-first features including:

  • Power-sliding rear roof: With a touch of a button, Envoy XUV easily converts the cargo area from fully enclosed to open air. This never-before-offered transformation allows Envoy XUV to transport large, tall items upright, ranging from armoires to small trees and bikes. The advantages of an open-air cargo space give the Envoy XUV unrivaled versatility.

  • Next-generation Midgate with power glass: Along with its exclusive power-sliding rear roof, Envoy XUV’s advanced Midgate is the key to versatility. The Midgate glass can be raised or lowered with a push of a button. When the window is raised, the passenger compartment is sealed off from the rear cargo area. Lower the glass, fold and tumble the seats, and flip down the Midgate to create a wide, extended cargo area that’s wide enough to fit multiple 4-foot by 8-foot building sheets with the tailgate down.

  • All-weather cargo area: The rear cargo area is engineered to be extremely heavy duty and weather resistant. Plus, it has an innovative QuickDrain system that can channel as much as 30 gallons of water per minute out of the cargo area. This allows the cargo area to be quickly cleaned with a simple garden hose after hauling wet or messy items like mulch or topsoil. Cargo area versatility is further enhanced by four standard tie-down rings that can be moved to any of 12 locations to help secure items of various shapes and sizes, along with an additional four fixed tie-down rings on the roof. And, a selection of available GM Accessories expands Envoy XUV’s cargo-carrying versatility.

  • Drop or swing tailgate with power window: As the industry’s only drop or swing tailgate with a power window, Envoy XUV’s dual-function tailgate provides increased flexibility. The tailgate power window can be raised or lowered at the touch of a button. With the window fully lowered, the tailgate can be dropped for ease of loading and unloading. The tailgate can also swing right, allowing bumper access to the cargo area.

Envoy XUV’s reconfiguration features were designed to allow consumers to perform every functional change with ease. With a push of a button, Envoy XUV’s power-sliding roof, tailgate window and Midgate glass opens or closes. The tailgate drops or swings right with one-handed operation for ease of loading and unloading. And, the seats and Midgate can be reconfigured in seconds without tools.

Enhanced safety

Safety belts remain the primary and most effective form of occupant protection. All seating positions in 2005 Envoy and Envoy Denali models have three-point safety belts. Front and second-row inboard safety belts are mounted to the seats so the buckle moves with the seat during adjustments. Retractors for front outboard seating positions have built-in load limiters that allow a controlled amount of give in the belt, thereby reducing the peak load on the chest during the “ride down” in a crash.

Envoy, Envoy XL, Envoy XUV and Envoy Denali also have dual-stage frontal air bags for supplemental protection for front seat passengers. Dual-stage frontal air bags are designed to help reduce the risk of air bag-induced injury. When the air bag system’s control unit detects an impact, it determines whether the crash is severe enough to trigger a deployment, and whether the primary amount of inflation is sufficient. The primary stage alone will deploy in most frontal impacts requiring the supplemental protection of an air bag, while a secondary stage is designed to deploy in more severe frontal collisions.

GM’s Passenger Sensing System (PSS) also is employed. PSS uses the latest sensing technology to turn the front passenger air bag on or off. If the sensor system detects an unoccupied front passenger seat or the presence of a smaller occupant, the front passenger air bag is deigned to automatically turn off so it would not deploy in the event of a frontal collision. A status indicator on the instrument panel alerts occupants that the passenger air bag is on or off. Even with this system, GM strongly recommends to restrain child passengers in an appropriate child seat placed in the second or third row of the vehicle. Never install a rear-facing infant seat in front of an active air bag. GM also recommends that all children 12 and under ride in the rear seat when possible.

Available head curtain side air bags act like a protective curtain when deployed, unfolding from the roof rail between the A-pillar and side window header. When the bag deploys in a moderate to severe side impact, it is angled somewhat toward the window to help provide protection for front- and second-row outboard passengers. In vehicles equipped with head curtain side air bags, a new rollover protection sensing system helps protect occupants in a rollover event by triggering both the side curtain air bags and safety belt pretensioners. The rollover-sensing module, located on the center tunnel under the rear seat, uses a complex algorithm based on lateral and vertical accelerations, roll rate and vehicle speed to determine whether to deploy the safety systems.

Also, Envoy, Envoy XL, Envoy XUV and Envoy Denali models are equipped with LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system anchors for child safety seats. This system provides two lower anchors and a top tether anchor to be used to secure a child seat to the vehicle seat structure. These anchorages are designed to make it easier to properly install compatible child safety seats.

All Envoy models also feature an enhanced passenger seat belt reminder system. It provides a repetitive, progressively strident message to any unbuckled front seat occupant, as a reminder to fasten seat belts.

OnStar-equipped Envoy, Envoy XL, Envoy XUV and Envoy Denali models (included in an Option Package Discount) feature new sixth-generation hardware with digital and analog coverage. OnStar’s Gen 6 hardware also includes upgraded hands-free voice recognition capabilities including more intuitive continuous digit dialing and improved voice recognition accuracy. OnStar is the leading provider of in-vehicle safety, security and information services in the United States and Canada. Using the GPS satellite network and wireless technology, OnStar features core safety services and OnStar Personal Calling that allows drivers to make and receive hands-free, voice-activated phone calls using a powerful three-watt digital/analog system and external antenna for greater reception.
