Would be interested to hear a review on the Voxx once you have it installed. I was in the same boat - wanted RSE, but the more I read the less I wanted it. Then the first vehicle I could find otherwise fitting my criteria didn’t have it so worked itself out. But curious if there is an aftermarket solution that is better than ipads
I’m scheduled for next Wednesday to have it installed, I’ll let you know.

The speed limit display seems to be hit or miss. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, and it doesn’t have anything to do with the roads I’m traveling.

Didn't know about the push button shift. If it is in the center of the steering wheel like the Edsels that would be cool.

No idea why there are complaints about rse. It’s so easy to use and great screens. I have 0 complaints

My new Yukon XL is a Denali Premium with everything added to be the same as an Ultimate with the exception of RSE.

Likes:

The new instrument cluster is great. I like all the different configurations I can choose and there can be a lot of information I can see there.
The ride is really nice, I didn’t fully appreciate it until I drove my 18 Sierra one last time after driving the new Yukon and I was like, man this thing rides like crap…
Interior finishes are really nicely done.
I like the push button shifter better than I thought I would
The camera system is very useful, and the new shortcut button makes it even better.

Dislikes:

Is there a way to deactivate the horn warnings? I do a lot of kid dropping-off and picking-up and each time I either get out of the truck with the keys in my pocket with the truck running or leave my keys in the truck with it turned off, it honks… and its loud.

Auto-Start/Stop: they started building them again with this feature on Dec 13th and my truck was built on the 16th, just missed it but at least I finally have my truck.

The temperature control knobs feel cheap and cheesy, however this is my only complaint with the interior

No foot pedal adjustment. I’m 6’ 2” and they don’t seem to be where I would like them but I’ll get used to it I’m sure. My friend has a 21 GMC Sierra Denali and his doesn’t have it either. It seems strange that this isn’t a thing anymore…

There doesn’t seem to be much storage in the center console. I do have the sliding console but if the version without has more storage, I think I’d choose the storage…

Infotainment Center: I’m listing it in my dislikes as I think the overall I’d rather have the ’21 version. Thankfully I have 3 years of connected service but I’m not looking forward to having to pay a fee when that runs out to use navigation and the remote app, both of which used to be free. I also don’t like how the google functions like maps and google news have bright colored icons but the others are in a simple white design, making it more difficult than it needs to be to find what I am looking for, which IMO isn’t a good design with a driver in mind. I asked Google to do something for me on my way into work this morning and she told me she was off-line… why I don’t know and don’t feel like taking the time to figure it out…

It appears that I listed more dislikes than likes, but overall, I am very happy with it. It is definitely a step up from my ‘18 Sierra SLT and I am still learning about all the different features.

RSE is something I initially wanted but due to constraints removing it was the only way I had a chance of ever getting my order picked up. I feel lucky that was the only thing I had to remove. Listening to all the other comments on RSE, I am thinking this may have been a blessing in disguise. I plan on having a Voxx system installed next week and hope to report that it works well. With the Voxx system, I won’t be able to turn it on and off from the dash but I will have full control of the content with my phone, with the added benefits of no cords for additional equipment and a DVD player. I have 4 kids 4 and under so they cannot control the devices themselves yet anyway… (but get them a month and I’m sure they will be better at it than me…)

Thank you all for all your posts. I've read most of them in the past few months as I myself was trying to get an order in. By the time I received it I knew more about it than the salespeople at the dealership. There isn't much communication from GM on all the differences between 21 and 22 and dealing with all the constraints, so this forum is very useful to a new buyer.
Adjustable pedals are not offered on the T1s for whatever reason. I think they're great.

There is a switch on dash to turn off Start/Stop, only thing is it defaults to on at every start. I been turning mine off for the last year, after a while it becomes 2nd nature, push the start button, turn off Start/Stop, buckle up and go.

How difficult was it to install? I'm a little nervous about tearing into my dash...

If you have a console, its a lot to take apart. There is a you tube video showing the work. Fyi, it has been said there were problems with some of them so be careful where you buy it so you don't get the version that caused issues. No reputable shop will install them, anything that defeats a feature like Start/Stop, DFM etc they won't touch, ethics.

Can't tell if you're being serious here...

Yes the screens look great but having to mirror or stream from another device or use an external device with cords running all over the place is a bunch of BS. Why would they not load these with amazon prime or hulu or netflix or any number of other streaming services so you can just turn on the screen, select some content and start watching? No different than the technology on a smart tv in your house. In vehicle wifi or hotspot from a smartphone should be the only thing needed. For $2500 this setup sucks IMO (and nearly everyone else that has one of these rides)

Other than the rse (actually doesn't affect me that much cause we rarely use it) we pretty much love our new yukon

So are the 2 new iPads I handed my kids for half the price of RSE
Bent neck for hours. That must be fun for your kids. You pay what you want to pay but I love the screens. Oh no. I have a fire stick. Many here aren’t tech savvy enough to get the most out. And a fire stick is the basics
