The 2016 F150 (that I traded in for my 2020 Blazer RS) had piped in, simulated engine noise, which I enjoyed. On the drive home from the dealer yesterday, after taking possession, I wondered if the engine noise was likewise piped in. Does anyone know for sure?

Followup Question: if it is piped in, is there any way to alter it?

I wondered that myself. I thought I was having a transmission issue and I took it in and they couldn't find anything wrong but they heard the noise. They test drove another and it did the same thing. To me it almost sounded like something was rattling. I did notice that when I changed it from touring mode to sport it was quieter which didn't make sense to me. Don't really like it if that is what it is.

That doesn't sound like what I'm talking about. With my truck it was a smooth, evenly revving engine sound that unmistakably sounded like an engine. I'm at the end of my first week with my Blazer and I'm pretty sure it is not doing the supplemented sound thing.

I know what you are talking about. My 2010 Mustang GT has a tube and a resonator that brings some enhanced induction sound into the car. I also know the newer EcoBoost Mustangs have their engine sound "manipulated" by the sound system in the cars. However, I have not seen/read anything regarding the noise being piped into the Blazers. That doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I just haven't seen anything about it. I think I read something about a noise canceling system. So the sound system might be taking away some of the harsher noises from the engine. I'll have to look and see if I can find where I saw that.

Yes, I seem to remember reading about the noise cancellation on the Blazer. Now that I've had my RS for a couple of weeks I'm pretty sure that there is no supplemental engine noise being piped in.
