    I think it would be great if they did and would give the Escalade an edge in driving dynamics.
    I am on the border of genius and crazy. I keep trying to cross over into genius, but ICE keeps sending me back to the crazy side of the border.

    Didn't GM have trucks with 4-wheel steering (Quadrasteer or something) not too long ago? So shouldn't be too much to hope for in a vehicle with the margins of the Escalade. It won't be the same components as the CT6 but should be effectively the same capability.

    But, more importantly, what's a GNIer? I guess I'm one now that I've replied to this thread

    I ain’t saying a word about that. Go speak to autocorrect about that matter.







    Seriously? Just a typo.

    No clue, but it would certainly be a good feature to help differentiate its Chevy/GMC platform mates.

    This. Quadrasteer was a failure due to GM incompetence so it has been relegated to the "Buyers don't want it" round file cabinet.

    Hasn't it essentially failed(to sell) every time it's been offered in the past, no matter the manufacturer offering it?

    GM failed by doing what it always does. The first year to get quadrasteer you have to buy almost $6,000 in packages. The last year it was offered it was $1000 and a stand alone option.

    Doesn't Honda/Acura have the SHAWD thing?

    like the poly box and the 2 mode hybrid
    BOTH VERY GOOD features priced outside the range of "normal" buyers

    The other thing was it took the GVWR from 8700 to 10,000 and the max towing went from 14,000 to 16,000. It was a huge upgrade. So sad GM gave up on it. It was great technology.

    The real question should be why isn't this tech filtering down to other cars. Especially within Cadillac. That along with the ground breaking mixed metal construction. But it's absolutely shocking and abhorrent that it hasn't been used in atleast the performance cars. Corvette, Camaro, and V-series at the very least should be utilizing this tech.

    GM has a nasty habit of cloistering tech away behind Cadillac, away from from where all but the snootiest of buyers can afford Cadillac with the lot

    A good buddy had an older hi-mi Honda with it. Something was all amiss with the rear steering and it was INSANELY chaotic to drive, never knew quite what the ass end was gonna do. Not a bad thing when you're chasing a mate, but quite unsettling when you gotta get to work on icy roads.

    Re: So, GNIers what are the chances that 2021 Escalade gets CT6ís active rear steer?

    Curious, was quadratsteer for trucks only to reduce turn radius, or did it do what the ct6 does, reduce turn radius and at high speeds turns same direction as front for better stability?
