    I've driven an RLX with P-AWS a couple of times. Didn't really see the value of it.

    It did both. In tow haul mode it reduced the rear steer at high speed as well.

    I've never driven a vehicle with quadrasteer, but it sounds like a very useful piece of tech, especially on bigger vehicles. But there might be a reason GM dropped it (on the trucks) and it is not widely used throughout the automotive industry. Perhaps it is a very costly component and the complexity makes it only suitable for low volume vehicles?

    There might be a reason GM bundled it with a costly package, it could be that it simply cost a lot.

    A GM engineer at the time gave a pretty solid interview on it and said that the cost to implement it really wasn't that much. It was actually far sturdier than the regular GM axle. GM even had a national tour where you could drive the trucks. It was a big deal.
