Actually, there are a few out there.
My 2010 Subaru Legacy 3.6R had a cat on each side with the pipes going into an X and then dual pipes going to the back of the car.

On the flip side, my '93 Audi 90S had dual cats converging into one pipe with a single exhaust at the back.

Go figure...

No responses to your question yet so I guess that no reasonable alternatives are available. I'm in the same boat as you....got a '15 limited with a single, lame looking exhaust. Otherwise, a great ride.

At the OEM levels of hp and torque, there's absolutely no need for a dual exhaust on the V6.

About as useful as dual exhaust on the Chevy 1.4 liter 4cyl engine in the Chevy Cruze.

Pure cosmetic.
Agreed. The temps of a v6 exhaust gasses, by the time it reaches the tailpipe, has cooled down to the point that the need for duals is just a waste.

But what's the point in taking it away?

I personally don't care because I don't like the Limited and sets it that much further apart from my Overland lol

Cost savings. Pure and simple.

Sorry about the old thread bump but I am also curious if anything aftermarket came out *yet*?

Regarding turning the single tip into dual on a 2015 GC Limited
