2018 brake pedal pressure

Iím wondering if some of you can shed light on my brake characteristics. I have 18 2500 crew cab with 7000 miles and since day one I have noticed that it takes more foot pressure to stop compared to my 2015 and my other trucks. My brakes donít respond with the same effectiveness. They have a hard pedal, will lock up the wheels but not the same bite when you get to the hard spot on the pedal travel. Itís a little like a trailer pushing you as your come to a stop. I donít feel itís a safety issue and have not talked to a dealer, I just donít like feel. I did find a different pad part numbers on the gm website from the 15 to 18.
Maybe my booster is a little weak?
Thanks in advance for your response.
Harry

There is zero harm in having the brake system rebled. That's step one.
If the results are the same, then physical inspection of 5he caliper hardware and pads, for binding, is the next step.

Thank you for the response. I plan to do as you suggest. Hoping someone here had some insight such as change in design etc.
Thanks Harry

I have a 2018 CC 2500HD and the feel from my brakes is actually quite good, worlds better than my 2002 ever had. If you suspect something is amiss it's a wise choice to dig a little deeper. A truck that won't start is a PITA, a truck that won't stop is another thing entirely. Better safe than sorry.
