2. Quiet, Smooth Ride
The Denali ditches the regular Yukon’s suspension in favor of the magnetic ride control found in many high-end General Motors products. It does a good job of smoothing out imperfections on the road without creating an overly soft, bobbing-body driving experience. With the larger 22-inch rims however, the ride felt a bit choppier when compared to the same suspension set-up on a Tahoe LTZ we tested that same day wearing 20-inch wheels with higher sidewall tires.
Besides a smooth ride, the magnetic ride control combined with active noise cancellation produces a quiet interior the likes of which were not found in the previous generation Denali. GM took great strides in eliminating NVH from the company’s new lineup of full-size pickup trucks and thankfully this success has found its way into the large SUVs as well.
