The GMC Envoy is an SUV from the GMC marque of General Motors. It was introduced as a luxury version of the Jimmy for the 1998 model year, the same year the Jimmy was restyled.

For 1998, the Envoy was a luxury trim line of the GMC Jimmy SUV, itself a clone of the Chevrolet Blazer. This version used a 190 hp (142 kW) 4.3L L35 Vortec 4300 V6, and was retired after the 2001 model year.

The new Envoy replaced the Jimmy name in GMC’s lineup. While it still shares a platform with the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, the styling is different. Early versions used the 270 hp (201 kW) straight-6 Vortec 4200 engine, while later Envoys stepped up to 275 hp (205 kW). This rating grew to 291 hp (217 kW) for the 2006 model year. All Envoys have 4-wheel disc brakes. A Displacement on Demand 5.3 L V8 was used beginning in 2005.

The Envoy was Motor Trend magazine’s Sport/Utility of the Year for 2002. The 4200 Vortec I6 engine has been named to Ward’s 10 Best Engines list several times.
