After the much-ballyhooed overhaul of the GMC Sierra for the 2014 model year, what does GMC have planned for the Sierra Denali for 2015? Worth telling your neighbors is the available Magnetic Ride Control.
“With Magnetic Ride Control, the 2015 GMC Sierra Denali delivers a smoother, more confident driving experience without sacrificing the capabilities customers expect from a GMC truck,” said executive chief engineer, Jeff Luke. “The responsiveness of the system makes this full-size truck feel and drive like a luxury vehicle – and one that’s more comfortable on long trips, especially when trailering.”
So how does it work? The truck has sensors that read the road 1,000 times per second. It takes these readings and applies them to the dampening settings on the truck in as little as five milliseconds, making for a very comfortable ride. The technology, which has been licensed by Ferrari, has been in The General’s stable for a while,” but has been specially modified for big time hauling.
