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.
