2016 Chevrolet Impala sounds like running over rumble strips

Sounds like running over rumble strips. Seems to be morenprevelent when Golgotha up hills.

Torque converter shudder is one possibility.

A bad wheel bearing is another possibility.

Whether you are driving to Calvary, or not, I think that a bad Torque Converter Lockup mechanism is the source of the problem.

That rumble has been the lockup torque converter on many vehicles I’ve checked in the past.
