Editors at TheCarConnection.com find that the 2009 GMC Envoy offers a wide array of standard and optional features. The Envoy can be configured in nearly endless ways and is available in three main trims: SLE, SLT, and Denali.
Kelley Blue Book details many of the standard features of the 2009 GMC Envoy: "StabiliTrak, illuminated entry, keyless remote, cruise control, tire pressure monitoring system, power liftgate release, dual power mirrors, AM/FM stereo with CD, head-curtain side airbags, XM Satellite Radio, rear window wiper/washer and aluminum wheels." With the SLT upgrade to the Envoy GMC, buyers get "a garage door opener, heated mirrors, eight-way power driver's seat and the TravelNote digital recorder." Cars.com reports that GMC "Envoys have either rear-wheel drive or Autotrac four-wheel drive, which incorporates a two-speed transfer case." MyRide.com notes that the Denali upgrade offers "a premium leather interior, unique styling cues, new 18-inch aluminum wheels, and all of the features of the SLT."
Kelley Blue Book reports additional Envoy GMC options include "limited-slip rear differential, rear load-leveling suspension [and] locking rear axle." ConsumerGuide lists the "power-adjustable pedals, DVD entertainment, and navigation system." New for 2009 is hands-free Bluetooth technology.
TheCarConnection.com editors note that while the 2009 GMC Envoy comes well equipped, it’s surprisingly expensive for a vehicle of its type, starting at more than $31,000 for the rear-wheel-drive SLE and ranging past $43,000 for a fully loaded Denali 4WD. That’s several thousand more than most of its chief rivals, and it makes the Denali less attractive regarding features for the money.
The 2009 GMC Envoy offers the whole kit and caboodle in terms of features, but at a premium price.
