XUV Owners - what do you replace an XUV with

What do people who really love their envoy XUV replace them with?

I am landlord/property manager and the XUV was a perfect car for me. I can put my main tools in the back so they are easy to access, put really messy stuff in the back, fold the midgate down to haul sheet goods, or open the roof to bring home my Christmas tree. I was the perfect XUV customer.

Last year I had some parts go in the tailgate and actually bought another tailgate to steal parts and keep the dream alive but I think it is time to move on. I am looking at pickups but I do most of my work in the city so I dont want anything longer then then envoy(208" inches) but need a crew cab so I can haul my son around. That puts me in to short pickup like the GMC/Chevy Canyon/Colorado. Those only have 5 foot boxes so now if I want to hall long wood or molding I need a roof rack..

I would love to have a 2019 XUV. It was the perfect combination SUV/pickup.

I think I am going with a Colorado/Canyon crew cab short box. The XUV is around 208 inches and this is maybe 2 inches bigger.

But so I need to add camper top and a rack or at least a camper top and one of those bed extender hitch things for molding etc.

So ? what did you end up going with ?



After my wife crashed my much-loved 05 XUV this past summer, I went and looked at EVERYTHING .. and came up empty handed. The XUV was still drivable but because the air bags went off it wouldn't pass inspection, so I wasn't in immediate need ..



So, what did I do ? I searched the car sites (cars.com, cargurus, carfax, craigslist etc) DAILY for over 6 months ..I wanted basically an exact replacement for what I had, V8 with 3.73 gears for towing, 4x4 for the winter, SLT for all the goodies and as many options as possible .. and lowww mileage, which proved to be the most difficult thing of all.



.. and FINALLY it paid off. Original owner '04 with EVERYTHING except NAV with 46,xxx miles - for only $6,400 !! Only problem was, it was in Denver and Im on Long Island, 2,000 miles away.



I put the word out on my classic Buick site that I needed someone to take a look at a vehicle for me near Denver and luckily someone responded who was only minutes away. He went and looked it over real good .. and basically said I'd be nutz NOT to buy it !!


Cheapo plane ticket for myself and a buddy, and next thing I knew we're on a 2,000 mile roadtrip !!


Can't be happier with my decision and to say persistence paid off would be a gross understatement.
