Available Air Ride Adaptive Suspension incorporates air springs that allow you to raise and lower the height of the vehicle to suit different driving conditions.
How to raise and lower your vehicle with Air Ride Adaptive Suspension (if equipped)
1. First, locate the Ride Height Controls in your vehicle.
a. Some models will have a selector knob and a button, while others will have separate buttons for raising and lowering the vehicle or a dial located on the center console.
2. To use the Ride Height Controls:
a. On models with a selector knob, press the button on the knob to open the Ride Height menu in your Driver Information Centre (DIC). Turn the knob to the right or left to highlight a ride height and press the button to select it.
b. If your vehicle has separate buttons for raising or lowering the vehicle, press either of those buttons to open the menu, then use them to select the desired ride height.
3. Depending on your vehicle, you can select the following available ride heights:
a. Entry/Exit Height: Lowers your vehicle to make it easier to get in and out of.

c. Increased Ground Clearance: Higher than Normal Height. On most vehicles, if you select Off-Road or Terrain Mode using the Driver Mode Selector, your vehicle will automatically raise to this height.

d. Maximum Ground Clearance: 0.05 metres higher than Normal Height (full-size SUVs only).
i. Available on 4WD vehicles with 4LOW except the GMC HUMMER EV. Maximum Ground Clearance is only available in 4LOW mode.

Automatic Entry and Exit
- Your vehicle can automatically lower when you place it in PARK to make it easier to get in and out.
- To enable this, go to your vehicle Settings menu on your infotainment screen and enable “Easy Exit.”
- This feature is disabled when you raise your vehicle above Normal Height, when your vehicle is in Off-Road, Terrain or Tow/Haul modes, or if you have a trailer attached.
If you get out of the vehicle while it’s lowering and close the door, the vehicle will lower slightly, stop, then begin lowering again until it reaches the selected height.
Also, your vehicle’s front end may automatically lower slightly for aesthetic purposes when you turn your vehicle off at Normal Height.
