Editors at TheCarConnection.com find that reviewers' reactions to the interior of the 2009 GMC Envoy are mixed—but most are satisfied with the exterior.

The GMC Envoy was last redesigned in 2002 and has seen few changes in styling since; 2009 brings some new exterior color choices but not much more.

Calling it an "upscale twin to sister division Chevrolet's TrailBlazer midsize SUV," Edmunds says the Envoy GMC 2009 "takes a trip uptown with fancier styling." MyRide.com contends that when compared with others in its class, "Envoy may be the best-looking of the bunch." Cars.com reports that "a shield-shaped grille helps give the four-door [GMC] Envoy a distinct identity." ConsumerGuide describes the Envoy GMC as having "a traditional truck-type design," and Kelley Blue Book proclaims the GMC Envoy "strikes a rugged yet refined pose that seems equally comfortable off-road or at valet parking." MyRide.com remarks that the 2009 GMC Envoy "looks like it's ready to tackle the tough jobs (and it is), but the styling is conservative and upscale."

Reviewers aren’t quite as fond of the interior of the 2009 GMC Envoy, although there are some exceptions. Kelley Blue Book has nothing but accolades for the Envoy GMC's interior, describing it as "typical GMC: simple and clean...the instrument panel controls are handsomely adorned with wood trim and sturdy black plastic." ConsumerGuide is less impressed with the 2009 GMC Envoy's interior: "mainstream Envoys use unimpressive imitation-wood trim," but nonetheless "are slightly more upscale than similar Chevrolet TrailBlazers for interior décor." Edmunds notes that "brushed metallic [dresses] up the interior" of the GMC Envoy but adds "that luxurious effect is sullied somewhat by the use of low-grade plastics on the dash and door panels." MyRide.com, however, reports that "the brushed nickel interior trim looks classy."

Conclusion

The 2009 GMC Envoy looks, not surprisingly, like an SUV inside and out.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
