At speeds below 40 to 45 mph, the rear wheels turn opposite the front to a maximum turn angle of 12 degrees. When traveling at speeds above 40 to 45 mph, available QUADRASTEER allows the front and rear wheels to turn in the same direction for smoother transition during passing or lane changes. The 2003 Silverado is here with a brand new look that's turning heads everywhere. But the new Silverado is more than just a pretty face. It's got all the same proven power, pulling and payload you've come to expect. In half-ton, three-quarter and one-ton trucks, the name is still Silverado. And select half-ton models are now available with QUADRASTEER four-wheel steering, 1 making Silverado the most-maneuverable full-size pickup you can get.2 The new Silverado. The Truck. From Chevy. The most dependable, longest-lasting trucks on the road.3
When it comes to steering, four wheels are better than two. That's the thinking behind QUADRASTEER1 by Delphi, an available four-wheel steering innovation that allows specially equipped 1500 Extended Cab Short Box and 1500HD models to maneuver much like smaller vehicles.
At low speeds, QUADRASTEER gives Silverado a reduced turning radius for making tight turns and handling parking maneuvers. In fact, Silverado 1500 Extended Cab models equipped with QUADRASTEER have a best-in-class turning diameter of 37.4 feet.4
When traveling at highway speeds, QUADRASTEER enhances steering control when you're pulling a boat, and whether you are passing or simply changing lanes.
You have to experience the available QUADRASTEER system firsthand to see how truly amazing it is. It's just one more reason why Chevy Silverado continues to redefine the full-size truck market.
