GM Stabilitrak vs. No Stabilitrak GMT900 Cadillac Escalade AWD tracks in the snow
Two tracks... the first one being with Stabilitrak disabled, the second with Stabilitrak enabled. Both were in the same parking lot, at speeds of 15-20mph.
With Stabilitrak, it's clear to see how the tires follow the same path, as opposed to with Stabilitrak disabled, where the vehicle easily slides back and fourth. This illustration at low speed also applies to highway speeds, the difference being once the vehicle starts to slide at highway speeds, without Stabilitrak it would be very unlikely you'd recover...
Sorry for the poor video quality.
