  1. Take my thoughts with a grain of salt. I have a 2016 1-ton diesel with Mickey Thompson aftermarket tires so the noise in the cabin should be horrible given my experiences with the 2004 and 2006 that I had previously with similar set up. They have improved dramatically! It's still "louder" than others would expect but that's because of the diesel and big lug aftermarket tires. You say you hear it more in the floor and rear panel so it may be the tires. Any vibrations? Does it increase with speed, especially going from around town to highway? If you like the tires and they are in balance you need to go another route. You can try sound deadening, but there are many options. Doing the entire interior is ridiculous in my opinion. Targeting the noise or vibration is best. However, you have to pull the rugs/interior to install so it's cheaper to do everything you want in one shot, so don't do it on a whim. Even if you do it yourself, which is the cheaper option, it's a pain in the arse (imagine pulling door panels/rear seats/etc. multiple times).
  2. 2016 Denali Crew Cab Bose System

    Thanks @therink I'm thinking you're right. It must be an issue with my center console sub not working properly as I can't imagine why the bass would have degraded that much for basically the same bose setup I was used to.

    Again I love my 2016 1 ton denali, but it seems GM is ignoring the Bose issue: JC:7:02:52 PM GMC - Assistance with my Infotainment system Connection established.

  4. $70,000 sticker

    I agree the prices for new trucks is getting ridiculous, but I want to add some real world examples. I have a 2016 1 ton Duramax Denali crew cab srw with a sticker of 66,295 (snow plow prep removed option for sunroof, rear sliding window, and universal home remote) not including the rear entertainment system. Dealership starting offer was 61,295. Impressions after a few weeks of ownership, this truck has blown me away with everything except the stereo system. No shakes yet even though I replaced the stock 18" rims with my old trucks 20" and MT ATZ P3's. I still have the road noise but the shakes I had on my 2012 are no longer there. Rosey right? My gripe is a horrible stereo system, it is so hollow. Given the price point I see this as an issue and have heard this from Cadillac and Yukon XL 2016 owners (via search as I don't honestly know these people personally).
  5. I just traded in my 2012 2500 crew cab (Chevy LTZ) for a 2016 3500 crew cab (Denali) and have noticed a huge difference in the sound of the stock stereo. They are both Bose premium systems but they sound worlds apart. I have seen other posts on 2016 Yukons and Tahoes that the new ones are hollow, but have not seen comments on the 2016 trucks. Not to knock the truck as everything else has exceeded my expectations except this, but for an MSRP of almost 70K, I think a vehicle should have a decent stereo. I even tried to reach out to GM to see what size speakers where in the truck: JC:7:02:52 PM GMC - Assistance with my Infotainment system Connection established.
