I'm pretty sure that GM has NEVER put a fuel sending unit floor hatch or access of any kind that is inside the riding zone of a vehicle --- not after the Ford Mustang-Cougar immolation problems when the fuel tank was the floor of the trunk.

One hit from behind, and the fuel tank ruptured and that sent the fuel into the car and set everything/everybody on fire.

... and yet Nader said GM trucks were a fire trap ... manila, unmarked envelopes were a-flying!

My 2005 and 2008 Impalas both had fuel pump access hatches under the carpet in the trunk, in between the spare tire well and the fold down back seats.
Very interesting. Never ever suspected GM would do that

I wish my 2000 Astro Van had an access hatch ... I think so, anyway. I have to change that fuel pump ... ugh!
