I think it would be great if they did and would give the Escalade an edge in driving dynamics.

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 ;)

Zero.
Car and truck systems won't be compatible.

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







Seriously? Just a typo.

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.

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.

Re: So, GMI'ers what are the chances that 2021 Escalade gets CT6’s active rear steer?

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

Doesn't Honda/Acura have the SHAWD thing?
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.

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.
