    I have had it a week, drove to northern michigan and around. Smooth ride, great power and actually not bad to park. When looking for a Denali I was trying to stay with the 20 inch wheels but this one has the 22's. Coming from a 2015 Duramax this vehicle is cushy in ride and comfort. Still trying to figure what Denali 2.jpg
    this vehicle has as options. Will post my glovebox sticker later.

    No, Z55 is the Air Ride Suspension with G69 Auto Level.

    Z55 is the "auto-ride".... everybody wants to call it air ride because the G69 "auto-leveling" uses air shocks in the rear.

    Z55 is electronically dampened struts/shocks but they are not the same as the "Magnaride" suspension.

    What year is yours? Your RPO codes are almost identical to mine, except yours has the retractable running boards, built-in trailer brake controller, polished exhaust tip, 22" wheels and tires, and came with the all weather floormats and cargo liner.

    Here's mine....

    How are you liking your retracting running boards? My ‘07 & ‘08 XL Denali had fixed running boards. The ‘13 we just bought had the retractable ones and I’m not sold on them as being something I like yet. I’m tall enough that I don’t use them so I end up stepping down faster than the boards extend and they hit the side of my leg.

    Also, I had to spray them with white lithium to get the passenger one not to stall and stay extended.
