What in the World Are: Power Adjustable Pedals?
Anyone I have ever spoke to about these thinks they’re pretty awesome! Power adjustable pedals have been around for a little while now on higher-end vehicles and are starting to trickle down more and more and will probably become very widely available before long. Especially when it comes to trucks. The only thing that might be more useful when it comes to multiple people driving the same vehicle (and I’m referring to trucks in general here) would probably be like some sort of “power adjustable side rail” to raise and lower to the right height for shorter people, such as our resident camera man (Jon), to hop in and out of the vehicle easier. Not sure how those would work… Anyway, back to the pedals! These things are great! My dad has them in his truck and they make it a lot easier when his wife gets in the car to adjust them and have the pedals right where she needs them to be so they’re not too close (which sometimes makes you brake or accelerate harder than intended) or too far away (probably even worse since you’ll accelerate or brake less than intended on occasion! Not good!). Most vehicles equipped with Power Adjustable Pedals that I’ve ever been in will allow you to adjust the pedals as you’re driving (and the 2014 Chevy Silverado is no exception) in the event you forgot to adjust them before you put the car in gear or maybe didn’t quite fine tune them enough. As with most of these kinds of features, check out our video we did to show you how to use it:
If this is the first time you’re hearing about them or seeing them in action you have to come try them for yourself. They’re pretty cool. Probably pretty simple from and engineering standpoint but this little feature goes a long way when you’ve got multiple drivers for the vehicle. Give our World Class Internet Department a call today at (800) 680-0835 to schedule your test drive and check out our Silverados on our website.
Hope to see you soon! Thanks for reading!
