2016 GMC Envoy

This mid-size SUV originally came in 1998. The production ended in 2009 and during this period we have seen two generation of it. Although this SUV is not under production for a half decade, there are many rumors that company plans to return this model. Although this probably sounds surprising, if we consider that GMC redesigned or refreshed several models in last few years so company could easily add one more model to its line-up. It is expected that new, third-generation, 2016 GMC Envoy will be probably based on the same platform as Chevrolet Trailblazer but, unlike most of the GMC models that have mechanical twins under the Chevy badge, it will be characterized by much more unique features.

2016 GMC Envoy specs

As we said, 2016 GMC Envoy will probably use the same platform as Trailblazer. However, significant number of mechanical part will be pretty much unique, so it won’t be just a mechanical clone of some Chevy’s model. On the other side, visual appearance will be totally different from any Chevrolet’s model, but it will for sure follow the design language that characterizes new GMC models. Compared to previous-generation model, 2016 GMC Envoy will have longer wheelbase and it will be equally suitable both for road and off-road drive. When it is about interior, it is still hard to speculate how it will look. However, if we consider that previous model came 2002, it is for sure that differences between that and new 2016 GMC Envoy will be very, very drastic, both in terms of style and technologies.

2016 GMC Envoy possible engine

At this point, we can only speculate about 2016 GMC Envoy engine options. Previous model was used big 5.3 liter V8 (also 4.0 liter V6) but it is hard to believe that new model will be available in V8 variant. It will probably use GM’s known 3.6 liter V6, which will output somewhere between 240 and 280 horses. This model will probably be offered on many markets all over the world, so there is also possibility that 2016 Envoy will be offered in diesel variant, with some advanced Duramax engine.
