The Envoy XUV LS has a revolutionary Envoy XUV 2004design featuring a reconfigurable all-weather cargo area with a power-sliding rear roof, a fold-down MidGate with power glass, and a dual function tailgate.

Features & Options

Power Sliding Rear Roof
The electrically operated rear roof panel slides forward - up and over the forward part of the roof.  This exposes the rear cargo area and allows for carrying tail loads higher than the roof.  The roof is operated with either a switch in the overhead console or with the key in the tailgate key cylinder.  Loads carried on top of the vehicle should be on the roof rack, not the sliding roof section.

Next Generation MidGate
The Next Generation MidGate is a fold-down gate behind the rear seats with a power-operated glass.  The MidGate glass, operated by a control button located in the overhead console, rolls down inside the MidGate.  With the MidGate and MidGate glass closed, the passenger compartment is insulated from any cargo or weather conditions in the cargo area.  Folding down the MidGate provides additional length in the cargo area for a total of 95.2 cu. ft. of cargo volume.  With the sunroof, MidGate glass and rear roof open, the Envoy becomes a virtual convertible.

Dual Function Tailgate
The dual function tailgate can be opened two ways.  It can swing down like a pick-up tailgate or it can swing open to the right.  The tailgate includes a power-operated glass that can be raised and lowered with a control button in the overhead console or the key in the tailgate key cylinder.  The glass can be lowered from the key fob by pushing the tailgate glass button twice.  The tailgate glass must be lowered to swing the tailgate down, however, to swing the tailgate to the right, the tailgate glass can be in any position.

 Driver Information Center Messages
A number of messages are displayed on the Driver Message Center when operating the roof, tailgate or MidGate.  The messages give the driver information concerning the status and possible action needed to complete the operation.

All Weather Cargo Area - Quick Drain System
The all weather cargo area is trimmed with a durable, puncture and scratch-resistant material.  It features an efficient quick-drain system that allows the operator to hose out the cargo bed.  The quick-drain system has 3 major parts.  A primary trough at the base of the MidGate routes water out through one-way valves that drain into the rear wheel wells.  A secondary trough just in front of the MidGate in the passenger compartment handles run-off when the MidGate is lowered.  Finally, 5 large valves under the floor trim panel of the cargo area route directly through the floor of the bed and eliminate any change of puddling in the cargo area.
