Visit GMC for more information on the GMC Envoy.

The 2003 GMC Envoy is a mid-size SUV newly available this year with a V8 engine. A 4-door with solid towing ability and a good deal of room for 5 passengers and plenty of gear, the 2003 GMC Envoy will certainly fit the bill for the SUV buying demographic who want rugged ability in a stylish and luxurious package.

Available Models
The 2003 GMC Envoy is offered with SLE and SLT trim levels while the XL model, a longer version, is available this year for those in need of more room.

Interior Features
The 2003 GMC Envoy is a very powerful SUV and has ample towing power but this doesn't mean that the designers haven't done a great job on interior features and styling. The 2003 GMC Envoy is a comfy and spacious ride with all the basic needs satisfied, even at the base SLE trim level. For example, cruise control, air conditioning with dual-zone manual controls, power steering, windows, door locks and a tilt leather-wrapped steering wheel combine with cloth upholstery, front bucket seats with lumbar adjustment, second row split folding seat, remote keyless entry and an AM/FM/CD player. Remote tailgate and rear-window releases and automatic headlights add to what you can do from the Cab as an extra convenience feature.

The SLT adds to this list with leather upholstered, 8-way power front seats, memory settings (driver seat and mirror), dual-zone automatic climate control, steering-wheel radio and climate controls, rear radio controls, rear headphone jacks, and an OnStar system with one-year service (roadside assistance, emergency services). Meanwhile, for better visibility, an automatic day/night rearview mirror is in place inside. An overhead console holds the trip computer, compass and universal garage-door opener.

Exterior Features
The 2003 GMC Envoy has a number of great exterior features as well; including a rear lift gate, rear privacy glass, roof rails, fog lights and cornering lights. Additional value added includes the full-size spare 8.5 tire, platform hitch and alloy wheels. On the SLT heated, powered side view mirrors come complete with turn-signal lights and a full roof rack.

The Envoy, as mentioned before, has a lot of power to face most challenging pulling or driving tasks. It comes from a 4.2-liter V6 engine capable of 275 horsepower at 6000rpm and 275lb-ft of torque at 3600rpm. 4-speed automatic transmissions do the shifting, capable of 15/21 mpg (city/hwy).

Other mechanical handling or performance features include an AutoTrac 2-speed transfer case and a Class 7 trailer hitch. Optional additions for specific performance enhancements are available, including skid plates or a limited-slip differential.

Safety and Security
The Envoy has dual front airbags, antilock 4-wheel disc brakes and daytime running lights. Optional safety add-ons include front-side airbags.
