Re
Drive has an article regarding using what sounds very much like noise cancellation in the Hummer. Check it out:

Really excited to hear the hummer come alive with the WTF mode. I can only imagine what sort of insane futuristic growl or purr will sound like!!!

No not that I’m aware of. One gmc commercial showing the launch doesn’t have any actual sounds and the other videos of people driving them are low speed.
I’m excited even for the door chimes, seat belt reminders and map notifications. Sounds like they are really trying to create a full sensory experience with this EV

I hope WTF mode doesn’t try to replicate the sound of an ICE. I had a 2018 Raptor that had a fake V8 engine noise pumped through the stereo of the V6 truck. Honestly, it sounded ok but it REALLY bothered me that it was fake.
From what I remember on the video I can't find it was more of a subwoofer rumble. Something to the effect of it lowering down, seeing the graphics change and the subwoofer rumbling like a lift off more so. I don't remember them talking about adding sound effects.

When preparing to launch in WTF mode, you not only get rumbling, but the seats also start shaking. haha!

No V8 sounds @Shaved Ice

Imagine all the chips that went into this feature. HA! I am unsure if the passenger seats shakes also. I imagine it would, just not the rear seats.
I would guess only the driver seat vibrates as it’s already used to warn of you drifting into other lanes and fhe like. Kind of a warning to the driver. Now it’s also used for “amusement” purposes!

If the passenger doesn’t get the shake in WTF mode I feel like the experience just won’t be as cool for a passenger. Takes away some of the fun in showing the feature off
I agree completely. It needs to be both front seats for it to really be effective. Although I can hear my wife now if I put it in WTF mode and she feels it asking if I really have to launch from every stoplight. haha. Be a dead giveaway we are getting ready to take off.

My simple reply to my wife would be…”yes”

lol. So far I’m just on the 2x reservation so WTF mode isn’t even an option. I’m thinking of upgrading to the 3x but at this point I’m worried it would take me longer to get a 3x just because I would be way down the list of 3x reservations. I really want to be able to experience that rush though!

If you are worried about timing keep your first reservation in addition to making the 3X reservation?

Personally I think 3X reservation today, will deliver before the 2X start? GM will have the ability to increase the production rate in late 2022 as they will be flush with batteries from Lordstown. I think there will also be a lot of cancellations as orders start shipping.

Yeah I’m not out anything by reserving the 3x since the $100 would be refundable. My buddy at the dealership knows I’d only end up taking one and understands what my thought process is.
