“CUE’s most noticeable graphic gains are to its navigation system, which adopts a map display that’s similar in style to Apple Maps.

“As for infotainment tech, systems with either a seven- or eight-inch screen are available. The latter, which is unimaginatively called “GMC Infotainment System 8-Inch,” is standard in Denali models. Luckily for this automaker, a clunky name can’t sink a good product as this is one of the best infotainment systems available today. Fast and fluid, it responds instantly to finger inputs. The user interface is elegant and easy to use, plus it supports multitouch gestures, like pinch-to-zoom, so it’s incredibly intuitive.”
