2000 Envoy New Car Test Drive
The name of the truck is Envoy, but that's only one letter away from 'envy,' which is what GMC's top compact sport-utility may arouse in other mid-size SUV drivers. The Envoy is loaded to the gunwales with luxury features and fancy trim, yet doesn't wimp out on the truck side of the equation. It comes standard with a powerful V6, full towing equipment and four-wheel drive.
GMC Envoy has no trim levels. Essentially, the Envoy represents the top of the GMC Jimmy line, so the $34,170 Envoy comes with all the goodies.
GMC's Jimmy, on the other hand, offers a wide range of models, starting with the $19,070 2-Door SLS. The top of the Jimmy line is the $34,520 Diamond Edition Special, sporting a custom grille guard, diamond-quilted perforated leather seats and brushed aluminum exterior accents.
The Jimmy is available in 2-door and 4-door versions, with 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive. The Envoy and the Diamond Edition Jimmy is available as a 4-door only.
Sporty SLS trim is standard on 2-door Jimmys ($19,070 with 2WD, $22,070 with 4WD). SLE comfort trim is standard on 4-door models ($26,470 with 2WD, $28,470 with 4WD). A premium 4-door SLT version is also available ($27,770 with 2WD, $29,770 with 4WD).
