As Eric Brandt mentioned in a post earlier today, GMC did some interesting things in the early 2000s -- and one of the most interesting was "Quadrasteer," a system developed for the Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra and the heavy-duty Chevy and GMC Suburban 2500. Quadrasteer allowed all four wheels to turn at once, giving these vehicles a dramatically better turning radius in tight spaces -- and significantly improving reversing precision when towing.

Unfortunately, General Motors cancelled the system, largely because its additional cost made it unpopular -- but many drivers swear by their Quadrasteer pickups. If you're looking for a full-size truck with a tight turning circle, this 2003 Sierra Denali currently listed for sale in rural Haubstadt, Indiana, has the feature -- and it's one of just a few Quadrasteer trucks currently for sale on Autotrader.

This particular Sierra is finished in silver with a beige leather interior, and it generally resembles basically every Sierra Denali model available at the time -- with one big exception. If you look closely at the rear fender, you can see that it bulges out a bit more. That's to account for the turning wheel in back. In creating this vehicle, GMC also had to stick tiny orange and red marker lights in front of and behind that bulging wheel arch -- and the bulge made the truck so wide that it was considered a "commercial vehicle," meaning each Quadrasteer model also required a set of orange lights mounted on the roof, like a semi truck tractor.

This particular Sierra Quadasteer has covered 183,000 miles -- a big number, sure, but you can't exactly be choosy if you're looking for one of these. It's offered by Midwest Motorsports for $8,000, and it has a clean Carfax report with no accidents.
