I am in the market for 2020 Sierra SLT with premium plus package. Every one I have found has the x31 package which I do not need. Is there any noticeable difference in the ride while driving on paved roads such as road noise or smoothness of the ride?

Supposedly the suspension has been retuned for 2020 and all the trucks should ride a little smoother than their 2019 counterparts. I personally do not have a problem with the ride of my X31, I never drove a non-X31 truck though since dual exhaust was a must-have.

same reason I bought the X 31 was for the look of the dual exhaust.  I bought a 2019 X31 and the ride is a little stiff but is getting a redo in the 2020 model.

I've had my X31 4WD Sierra for about a month. I got out of a 16 SLT 2WD as far as ride goes. I like the newer truck better. It's smoother than my old truck any day.

I feel the OVERALL ride with the X31/Z71 (mine is an RST Z71) is good. The handling is excellent, IMO. 

 

The only area I have complaints is how the Rancho twin tube shocks perform over bumps at higher speeds, and over incongruent surfaces (e.g. driveway entrances, where the truck pivots side to side). I feel a good bit more jostled around with my Z71 suspension in those circumstances vs. my old RWD 1500.
