Comfort levels aboard the 2008 GMC Envoy are fair, from comments read in respected Web reviews and in the opinion of TheCarConnection.com’s test drivers.
Cars.com reports that the five-seat Envoy GMC "contains reclining front bucket seats and a split, folding rear seat." ConsumerGuide touts "good headroom and legroom, even for taller folks" and "seats [that] are fairly comfortable and supportive," while "Available power-adjustable pedals help tailor a comfortable position, especially for shorter drivers." Edmunds comments that the 2008 GMC Envoy offers "a roomy cabin and plentiful features...[it] easily accommodates five adults, but there is no third-seat option."
ConsumerGuide reports that the "60/40 split 2nd row seat with automatic-folding headrests converts easily to provide ample space." Edmunds gives the specifics: "with those seats folded, the Envoy has a maximum cargo capacity of 80 cubic feet."
The interior quality of the Envoy GMC is a mixed bag; on one hand, "backlit power-window buttons and steering wheel-mounted controls are two of the Envoy's finer features--details too often overlooked by other manufacturers," according to Kelley Blue Book. On the other hand, the GMC Envoy's "mediocre interior materials prevent it from seriously challenging the class leaders" says Edmunds.
Noise aboard the GMC Envoy is a problem; "the 6-cylinder engine cruises quietly enough but sounds ragged at full throttle," according to ConsumerGuide, whereas the "V8 is more refined." This source also notes "tire noise is audible at highway speeds, though that's drowned out by considerable wind noise, especially from around the sunroof--even when it's closed."
TheCarConnection.com’s experts think the interior appointments in the 2008 GMC Envoy feel rather outdated and materials lack luster or a high-quality feel. The Envoy has reasonably comfortable seating, but road and engine noise are prominent.
