In other words, assuming the populated area has at least 1 million people, which areas, preferably still dense and/or grouped together, feels suburban in nature...meaning, more strip malls and less parking structures. Less of a downtown with high rises and more homes with yards.

Which cities are the best example of this? Where are the most populated and dense areas, that still aren't very urban in nature?

Denver. Aside from zip code 80202, and small portions of 80203 and 80218, the entire rest of the metro area is decidedly suburban.
