2003 GMC Envoy news, pictures, specifications, and information


Following their spectacular debut last year, GMC's Envoy and Envoy XL continue to expand their appeal in 2003 wîth attractively priced base models, simplified option packaging and new features, including the midsize SÚV §egmènt's most powerful V8 for Envoy XL.

Envoy's surprising refinement and performance has earned numerous awards, such as Motor Trend's '2002 Sport/Útility of the Year,' Sport Truck Magazine's 'Truck of the Year,' and African American On Wheels and Latinos On Wheels 2002 'Úrban Wheels' award. Consumer acceptance has been equally resounding. Although the seven-passenger Envoy XL just became available in March 2002, the Envoy lineup already set new GMC midsize SÚV sales records in March, June and October 2001.

'Envoy has clearly captivated buyers by setting a new standard for midsize SÚV comfort, convenience and capability,' said Craig Bierley, GMC Envoy marketing director. 'And, for 2003, we're expanding that appeal wîth attractive pricing, simplified option packaging and additional product enhancements. Coupled wîth strong availability of Envoy XL models, these initiatives position the Envoy family for another record-breaking year.'

And, Envoy continues to surprise the wîth the introduction of the revolutionary 2004 Envoy XÚV - the world's first vehicle wîth a power-sliding rear roof, drop or swing tailgate, all-weather cargo area, QuickDrain water-management system and a next-generation Midgate wîth a power window. This exclusive GMC product begins production in mid-2003.

Flexible options selection
Envoy and Envoy XL base SLE models provide increased value for 2003. The attractively priced, entry-level SLE models expand Envoy's reach to a broader range of customers. Customers can also order additional options on an individual basis, rather than as part of an equipment package. This adds potential savings and greater flexibility.

New Vortec 5300 5.3L V8
Envoy/Envoy XL's standard award-winning Vortec 4200 4.2L 24-valve, dual-overhead-cam inline six cylinder, now wîth 275 peak horsepower (increased from 270 hp) and 275 lb-ft of torque, is already the §egmènt's most powerful engine. For Envoy XL customers who want even more low-end torque, higher cargo-hauling and trailering capability and faster off-line acceleration, GM's Vortec 5300 5.3L OHV V8 will be available in late fall. It generates a peak 290 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque.

With its optional new Vortec 5300 and a 3.73 axle ratio, the Envoy XL provides trailering capacities of 7,200 pounds for 2WD models and 7,000 pounds for 4WD models.

More flexible lighting control
All Envoy models feature a new, four-position headlamp switch, allowing drivers to turn off the daytime running lamps (DRL) and automatic headlamps when necessary. Drivers can defeat the DRLs and auto headlamps for one ignition cycle, simply by reverse-rotating the headlamp switch - i.e., turning it counter-clockwise one position. The switch is spring-loaded and pops back. The DRLs and auto headlamps turn back on, whenever the ignition is restarted.

Larger fuel tank
Envoy XL also features a large 25-gallon fuel tank, providing a 425-mile driving range for 2WD/4WD customers in combined city/highway driving wîth the standard engine. A larger, 22-gallon tank, planned for Envoy beginning in fall 2002, extends the combined city/highway driving range of 2WD models to 418 miles and 4WD models to 396 miles between fill-ups.
