If you’re looking for a special family hauler, look no further than this 2003 Chevrolet Suburban. While it may not seem very apparent that a 2003 Chevy Suburban is, indeed, a special family vehicle, this particular one is, as it features Quadrasteer.
For those who don’t know about Quadrasteer, it was a 4-wheel steering system introduced by General Motors in the late 1990s. The system was offered in General Motors pickup trucks, where it was most popular, but it was also briefly brought to the Chevy Suburban and the GMC Yukon.
Quadrasteer is a big deal because of what it does to the maneuverability of the vehicle: a full-size truck or SUV, when equipped with Quadrasteer, has the same turning radius as a compact car. This is a big deal if you’re interested in towing, because it’s much easier to maneuver with a trailer, especially in tight spaces.
Unfortunately, Quadrasteer didn’t last very long — and now it’s difficult to find General Motors trucks equipped with the feature, and nearly impossible to find a Suburban with it. But this 2003 Suburban has Quadrasteer, and it’s one of just two listed for sale on Autotrader with the feature.
Offered by a private seller in Burnsville, Minnesota, in the Minneapolis suburbs, this Suburban has traveled 177,000 miles from new. The seller notes that there’s never been a problem with the 4-wheel steering, which is good news for anyone interested in the SUV solely due to this feature. Being in Minnesota, the Suburban does have some rust — though, hopefully, it’s limited to some small bubbles shown by the seller.
If you’re interested, this Suburban is offered for $6,900, and it’s finished in silver with a gray interior.
