Envoy the mid-size wagon comes in regular-length and stretched XL editions with extra room in the cabin for a third row of seats. Deluxe variations -- Envoy Denali and Envoy XL Denali -- stock luxurious comforts with choices for 2WD or 4WD traction.
Denali models tote a Vortec 5.3-liter V8 engine rated at 300 hp. The all-aluminum plant applies GM's innovative Displacement on Demand (DOD) technology that automatically pares the number of cylinders engaged in the combustion process when boosted power is not needed. Standard powertrain for Envoy and Envoy XL is a 4.2-liter in-line-six engine that runs to 291 hp.
External styling of Envoy changes on 2006 issues with chrome accents applied to front grille and bodyside moldings. Also, safety equipment improves with GM's StabiliTrak electronic vehicle stability control system going to every Envoy as standard equipment.
