2021 Escalade

Many of GM’s upscale SUV models feature a new component known as the Air Ride adaptive suspension. If you’re wondering what’s so special about this new suspension system, you’re in the right place. Here’s a look at how it’s engineered to improve ride quality and boost efficiency.

How the Air Ride adaptive suspension system works

2021 GMC Yukon XL Denali

An Air-Ride-equipped vehicle has a central air pump that raises or lowers each shock absorber as much as four inches to maintain an even, level ride. The vehicle’s computer system calculates how weight is distributed throughout the cabin, and automatically adjusts at all four corners. The system can work in concert with Magnetic Ride Control and an independent multilink rear suspension, which are also available on a range of GM vehicles.

Ride enhancements

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

In addition to providing a smoother ride, the Air Ride adaptive suspension system helps your vehicle perform more efficiently. When driving at highway speeds, it lowers your vehicle by three-quarters of an inch, making it more aerodynamic.

The Air Ride adaptive suspension system also gives you manual control over your vehicle’s ride height. To make it easier for your passengers to enter and exit the cabin, you can have your vehicle lower itself by two inches when parked. And if you’re heading off road, you can raise the ride height by an inch to avoid bumps and scrapes to the undercarriage. You can gain an additional inch of ground clearance when you drive at low speeds with the vehicle in 4WD LO mode.

Model availability

Currently, the Air Ride adaptive suspension system is found on the 2021 models of GM’s range-topping, full-size SUVs. The Z71 and High Country models of the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban offer it as a premium option. It’s also an available feature on the AT4 and Denali trims of the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. In the Cadillac lineup, it comes standard on the Premium Luxury Platinum and Sport Platinum models of the Escalade and Escalade ESV. However, you opt for it on the Premium Luxury and Sport trims. As of the time of this writing, no Buick models offer the Air Ride adaptive suspension system — although it would make a nice addition to the Enclave.


2021 GMC Yukon

This advanced suspension system doesn’t come cheap, and you’ll typically have to purchase additional options to receive the Air Ride option on your vehicle. For instance, to get Air Ride on the Yukon, you’ll have to purchase the Premium Capability Package with Active Response 4WD, which costs $1,795. But in order to get this package, you’ll have to purchase additional equipment. This means you’ll also have to drive home with the Max Trailering Package, the Advanced Technology Package, the Advanced Security Package, and the Prograde Trailering System, which adds more than $2,000 on to your vehicle’s cost in addition to the price you’ll pay for the Premium Capability Package.

Of course, prices will vary based on sales and models, but just keep those factors in mind to avoid sticker shock at the dealership.

2021 Chevy Tahoe, Suburban Air Ride Adaptive Suspension Detailed

Larger and plusher than the previous generation, the Tahoe has also received a promo video that details the Air Ride Adaptive Suspension system. Exclusive to the High Country trim level and Z71 off-road model, this option is listed as “late availability”for the 2021 model year on the golden bowtie’s U.S. website.

The electronic brain of the suspension automatically lowers the Tahoe at speed to improve fuel economy. The Environmental Protection Agency lists the full-size SUVwith 2WD and the 5.3-liter V8 at 20 miles to the gallon on the highway while the 6.2 and 4WDdrop to 19 miles per gallon (11.7 and 12.4 l/100 kilometers).

No fewer than four height modes are offered, varying up to four inches or 102 millimeters between the lowest and the highest. Entry Exit needs no explaining, while Normal is pretty obvious as well. Increased is the mode to use when hitting a dirt road on your way to the camping site while Maximum ground clearance is what you want when the going gets muddy, rocky, and so forth. Of course, you can use the Maximum setting when in 4WD LO mode.

Load leveling at all four corners translates to better weight distribution, which is very important in a utility vehicle as heavy as the Tahoe. The all-new-for-2021 High Country 4x4, for example, tips the scales at 5,845 pounds (2,651 kilograms).

Described by Chevy’s marketing team as “the most advanced available suspension in the segment,” the suspension system is complemented by Magnetic Ride Control. Standard on the Premier and High Country yet optional on the Z71, “it’s one of the fastest-reacting damping systems in the industry” according to the golden bowtie.

On an ending note, have you heard the small-block V8 will be joined by a 3.0-liter Duramax straight-six turbo diesel? Codenamed LM2, this engine is also listed as “late availability.”

Air suspension suburban

With the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban being brand new this year one thing many customers will notice is that there are now multiple trim levels moving forward as opposed to only a few trims levels as in the past.

On the 2021 Suburban's top two trim models; The Z71 and High Country edition you will find one of the Suburban's most advanced options for people looking for both comfort, improved fuel economy, and overall versatility; air ride adaptive suspension technology.

Air ride adaptive suspension technology has many benefits to today's modern driver... AND passenger. Let's look at a few of them.

The Basics: Underneath your 2021 Chevrolet Suburban, towards the front and secured between 2 cross members is an air pump. The air pump controls suspension height in each of the four shock absorbers. The pump will fill the shock absorber with air to raise the vehicle or pump air out of each of the 4 shock absorbers as needed to lower the vehicle. The pump can raise or lower the vehicle up to 4 inches.

Your 2021 Suburban's computer system calculates weight distribution throughout the cabin, and will automatically adjust ride height at all four corners.

The Benefits: First off, you have the choice between automatic and manual mode. Manual mode is typically used to raise the vehicle during off-road type situations. Manually lowering the vehicle is typically used for easier ingress and egress.

In automatic mode, the vehicle will self-level to reduce things like body roll. Overall the goal is to offer a smoother, more comfortable ride. but that's not all! In automatic mode, during highway driving, the vehicle will automatically lower itself to make it more aerodynamic which helps to improve fuel efficiency.

Indeed many of our New Canaan Area Chevrolet Suburban shoppers will want to opt for this option to provide a smooth and comfortable ride for the entire family as well as help to improve highway fuel economy for those long trips.

The Chevrolet Suburban has always been our top-selling vehicle and with this year's upgrade in both design and features, we don't see it becoming less popular anytime soon. Feel free to browse our website at to see our selection today.
