I removed mine (GMC SLT, the LTZ equivilent). I used a sharp pocket knife and a flathead screwdriver. I started at the upper left side, use the knife to get between and under the panel, just enough to see the closest clip, slide the screwdriver in to contact the clip and use it to pry the bezel away, then work your way down and around.
If you've never pulled dash pieces before you'll cringe and think something is wrong, but it's actually quite violent and will sound like you are breaking it.
If your's is the brushed aluminum panel and something goes wrong I have a spare available, I switched to the wood grain

I just removed mine as well. I found that some of those clear suction cups worked good to pull out on the dash enough to get a tool behind it. My bezel fit really close to the surround and I was afraid that just trying to stick something in there to pry with would mess up the dash. With the suction cups stuck to the bezel you can pull straight out on the bezel.
