Just picked her up yesterday.

We are now a three, count 'em, three LR4 family !
2013 Ipanema Sand - purchased new
2016 Fuji White - purchased used
and the "new" one
2015 Firenza Red - purchased used - only 40K miles
All with the Almond interior and chrome wheels.

Most of the Firenza/Almond's appear to have been sold "up north", this one lived it's previous life in Dallas - so no salt damage.

Just a note about CarFax and service data. CarFax had zero - that's zero - service data.
But it turned out that the dealership where I found this one was her "home" dealership.
They printed out 8 pages of service data - this has been a well maintained vehicle.
A few minor cosmetic issues of course, and I only found one mechanical issue - the rear brakes are very near the end of their life - fronts look to have been recently done.
Front control arms recently done - they still had remnants of the factory stickers on them, and cross over pipes are the originals - based on their design.
My IID Tool is VIN attached to the first two and it only told me only the VIN for this one - so no engine data...

Our first drive was yesterday from Frisco, TX (a bit North of Dallas) to Houston.
5 long... hours.
The truck said 97F for most of the trip and it was a typical drive - mostly at 80mph punctuated with stop and go.
Nice initial stress test and absolutely no issues.

ONE QUESTION
So, the 2016 - my daughters - the engine is just loud - I'm not hearing any issues - it's just loud.
The "new" 2015 - the engine is - "wow" level quiet- yes the appearance cover has insulation not on the 2016, but it's more than just some insulation.
Am I missing something on the 2016 - does it need service - it's been to dealership for other work and inspected and they have never said anything needs to be looked at.
Your Thoughts - Thanks!

How many miles on the 2016? Throw the cover from the 2015 on the 2016 and see how much of a difference there is.

My engine has gotten slightly louder as the mileage has increased. I think it's the fuel injectors getting noisy.

Can you describe what you mean by loud? Does it sound like your chains are rattling? Does it sound like injectors? Does it sound like a diesel at idle? Is it loud at full throttle or at idle? Both? My 2015 is loud also, mostly at idle. The dealer is baffled by it and every time a different tech walks by it when it's at the dealer they always mention how loud it is and my mechanic (same one has always worked on my vehicle) informs them all the time the engine is in perfect condition. I have a dash cam that is permanently mounted/wired and either they don't know it's there or they don't care so it picks up all their conversations.

The 2016 is loud when outside the truck, inside it sounds fine. There is no particular sound, timing chain or injector noise - just a general "roar".
I know it's a virtually impossible question to answer.....
