2002 GMC Envoy Review
A rugged SUV that can pass for a luxury vehicle.
For the money, the Envoy might be as much truck as any SUV has ever been, and more car than any SUV has ever been. There is so much impressive engineering in this totally new vehicle. Unless it's plagued by bugs its first year, it's hard to imagine it not being a giant in the midsize SUV field.
