This is where my rear wiper switch is too. Where is it on the Envoy?

Say it ain't so, D. Hopefully you're older and wiser now.

Hey now... Jeeps are great vehicles, best thing out there for off roading. They are just now getting into the luxury and racing/sport markets.

Envoy Denali interior:



Bottom left of the dash.



The gauge cluster is also a tiny bit different.

AAHHH yes the old question,, whats the difference.

Ghoster has covered most of it. If you get a tune and CAI for the SS you can expect around 15 in the city with "normal" driving, but if you drive like I do, expect 13 to 14. On the highway I can get 18 to 19 cruising at 70 mph.

The handling are 2 totally different animals, you can take an curve in the SS MUCH faster then any other GMT 360 "envoy/trailblazer chassis" Also the ride is a bit stiffer, but the handling is far superior. The front seats have a little bit more support then non SS models. It sits 1 inch lower, has much larger brakes and wider tires. No roof rack. Most everything else is the same. Go drive one before you do anything. But I must warn you, those that have test driven one, have almost ALWAYS gone home with one. It is a very hard vehicle to walk away from once you get in. Ask Jman423 and Tommy. They both got hook and with in a week of the test drive now have them sitting out front


Hope this helps!!! Good luck with you adventure, it is going to be a fun one.

Yeah, the AWD TB SSs I have test driven definitely feel different in the steering. The 2WD SS is closer to the Denali. I would be surprised if the races were close.

The SS is about getting there FAST, and doing it with style.
I agree with everything you said, except that the LS2 is the "current" vette motor (05-07), not former.
