2005 GMC Envoy XUV User Reviews
- Very Roomy, Tons of great options, XM Radio and OnStar, and a sliding roof, big gas tank
- It does eat gas, but with a bigger gas tank you don't feel it as much
I LOVE this SUV. I just moved out of my college dorm, and I was able to fit everything in. It has tons of options. I love having both onstar and the navigation system. Its great for the truck aspect but also has the nice look of an SUV. I would recommened this SUV to anyone.

- Roomy, Fast, and so much more!
- Electronic KeyChain Button
I love my XUV. I have hauled a refrigerator, small planting trees, my DOGS, and so much more. It is a head turner when someone sees a frig in the back. It is also great for a person who loves their dogs and takes them everywheres. The dual remote glass allows you to put your dogs in the back when they are muddy, and keeps the inside clean. GO GET YOU ONE. My only regret is that I did not opt for more options....read morehide

- Ride, comfort, flexible cargo configurations
- Weak mileage, lack of storage
This is my second Envoy and my 6th SUV and I'm delighted with it. The retractable roof, midgate and 2-way tailgate give a range of passenger/cargo combinations that is unmatched by any other vehicle. Whether it's hauling a load of lumber, bringing kayaks on a trip, going surf fishing with kids and dogs, this truck makes it easy to handle, and even easier to clean up!
I've taken the truck on long trips from New Jersey to West Virginia and to northern Quebec (-32 most of the time) and the vehicle performed flawlessly. The ride is as comfortable as any car (especially with Michelin Cross Terrains) and the amenities (on the SLT) are fabulous. I've had it on the beach and off-road in mud, and it performs just as well, especially with the locking differential.
I opted for the V-8 (the 2005 has a new gas-savings feature), but my 2004 gets a maximum of 16.2 mpg on pure highway driving. Average combined mileage is about 14.2, which is not great and is one of my two complaints. The other is a lack of storage places on the truck. Unlike the regular Envoy (which has a several compartments in the trunk area and in the overhead console, the XUV has none (the trunk area is all-weather with drains so it can be hosed out, and the overhead console is taken up with the 4 switches for sunroof, midgate glass, roof and tailgate glass). The trunk area has ample space for tie-down hooks, though, so rigging a storage box there is not a big deal.
I love this truck, and prefer it to the Tahoes, Grand Cherokees, and pickups I've owned. With a little better gas mileage, more storage, and a manual trans., it would be perfect!...read morehide
