Autotrader Find: 2004 GMC Envoy XUV With 54,000 Miles

The GMC Envoy XUV wasn’t a common SUV. Based on the popular GMC Envoy SUV, which went on sale for the 2002 model year, the Envoy XUV came out for the 2004 model year and offered a rather unusual benefit: a cargo area that wouldn’t just open from the back, like a normal tailgate, but rather from the top — as in, the roof would open.

When GMC first debuted this vehicle, marketing materials showed happy Envoy XUV customers carrying tall items that don’t fit in a normal cargo area — like, for instance, a grandfather clock or a huge chest of drawers — as if the Envoy XUV had solved all the problems of the grandfather clock-carrying community. And, indeed, it had — but the grandfather clock-carrying community is pretty small, so these weren’t strong sellers.

The Envoy XUV was offered in 2004 and 2005, and possibly after, but there aren’t any later models for sale on Autotrader — and sales were so slow it may have been canceled after just two years. But if you want to relive the nostalgia of the unusual Envoy XUV, here’s your chance: this 2004 model has been beautifully preserved, and it has just 54,000 miles.

Offered for just $7,995 by Premier Motor Sales in Pompano Beach, Florida, this Envoy XUV is in excellent condition with a well-kept interior and exterior. It’s also a top-of-the-line SLT model with 4-wheel drive, making it the most desirable version of the Envoy XUV, as these go.

Although the crowd of people who needed an Envoy XUV was rather small, if you’re in that crowd, there’s really nothing else like it. Here’s your chance to grab one of the nicest Envoy XUV models left.
