2008 GMC Envoy Overview

The 2008 GMC Envoy was launched in 2002 to replace the long-running Jimmy. The Envoy receives minor changes for 2008, including the addition of standard XM Satellite Radio and head-curtain airbags. Reviews say it provides a comfortable ride, but complain that its handling and interior quality are below-average. Forbes advises buyers to keep looking if they "want something sportier, more stylish or more reliable." Despite its all-terrain abilities, the Envoy ranks near the bottom of the class when compared only to other off-road SUVs

The GMC Envoy has three available trims: the base SLE, the SLT, and the top-of-the-line Denali. All models are available as a 2WD or as a 4WD.

  • "The current Envoy represents a vast improvement over its predecessor, but ultimately, it doesn't measure up to competitors. While its handsome exterior and roomy interior may attract consumers, GMC needs to come up with a better compromise between cushy ride quality and confident handling; specifically, it should lose some of the former to gain some of the latter." -- Carz Unlimited
  • "More than a mere lifestyle accessory, the Envoy proved to have the goods over its year-long evaluation, whatever the chore or journey." -- Motor Trend
