Schwinn or GMC Denali??

Hey Everyone. I'm a college student in need of a bike to get to campus from my apartment. The daily commute would be around 5 miles and I've narrowed the two bikes down to a Schwinn and a Denali. I've listed the specifications for each below that I was able to get off Amazon and was wondering if some of the more experienced bike riders could help me out. I've found places online that sell them for about $200. Any recommendations for other bikes would be great too. Thanks!
