My new "ride" (8-23: NOW WITH PICS!)

Recommended Posts

Well, GM finally made me a happy guy :D About two weeks ago I get a call from one of many salespeople I've left my # with to call me once a new GMAC Pull-Ahead program arrived that included me (the '03 Buick Rendezvous lease was scheduled to end in January of 2006). Needless to say I didn't waste any time deciding if I wanted to get rid of the Rendezvous or not (we were extremely close to our total allowed mileage, so it really was a no brainer ;) ).

After looking at several new "family" vehicles (see my other thread in the Lounge on the new addition to the family), we went with a 2005 GMC Envoy. It is a 4wd SLT model in Monterey Maroon Metallic with the two-toned Ebony & Light Tan leather interior - I've always loved this exterior color and it's going away in 2006.

Pretty much a loaded truck:
- 1SD opt pkg - Luxury Package (heated leather seats, rainsense wipers, headlamp washers, content theft alarm, Bose premium speakers)
- OnStar
- Sun, Sound, and Entertainment Package (XM radio, 6-disc CD radio, sunroof)
- Polished aluminum rims
- 3.73 rear axle
- Locking rear differential
- Cargo Area Management System
- Adjustable pedals

Took delivery yesterday - we got home around 9:00 PM last night, so it was too late for pictures. But I will be heading out soon with the digital camera to snap some shots of my new SUV. Look for them soon!
EDIT 8/23/2005:
Here are three pictures of the new Envoy (stupid sun; it went in when I took the first two shots, came out for teh last one!):

Sounds like an awesome vehicle, GMTG. Those pics will be great, but I'm sure your new little son is taking up a lot of time right now, and rightly so.

i hate to say it but my family owns one of these and a 96 grand caravan, and it is more of a people hauling minivan than the minivan is at least the seats in the van come out

The funny thing is that my best friend came over Saturday night, took the Envoy out for a spin and was hooked! He liked it so much, he decided it was time to trade in his '01 Nissan Maxima. Only problem? No '05 Envoy SLT's around... so he went with the 2005 Buick Rainier CXL AWD instead!!!

Excellent looking Envoy, GMTG! I hope you and your friend both have many happy miles.
