Do you find yourself attracted to the reasonable size and off-road ability of the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, but feel your position in life requires you to drive something a bit more upscale? Well, you're in luck, because that's exactly what you'll find in the
2009 GMC Envoy and Envoy Denali. Though identical to the TrailBlazer under the skin, the Envoy visually excels beyond its Chevrolet counterpart with its upscale exterior, plush interior and, for those who can afford the extra premium, high-end Denali trim package. The Envoy is extremely flexible, offering a choice of six- or eight-cylinder engines with two-wheel or four-wheel drive. When equipped with the V8 and the optional tow package, the Envoy can pull up to 6,600 pounds.
"Since we bought this suv it has had to be in the shop 6 times in less than 2 years. The starter quit the tail lights including brake light on the left side will stop working sometimes when you go over a bump, Have to take the covers off and just wiggle the bulb and thn it works until the next time. The self leveling pump has a leak in it so after sitting for awhile the suv has to be left running to give it a chance to level back to horizonal. I have nothing but trouble with thing since I bought it. I do not recommend this suv."
"Second owner since 22k miles. SLT model with 4 wheel drive. Normal friction items replaced, brakes, tires. The fan clutch was replaced. It's been a reliable mid sized SUV. I've owned a Tahoe at the same time, which I personally preferred for comfort, space and higher towing capacity. The Envoy is a very practical size. Good towing ability and ground clearance. Has a solid engine."
