I came from an 04 with big MT’s and thought that was hard to steer. Seems easy now if i drive it again. I have non adapted steering and yes its stiff. But after driving i dont notice it at all. And dam glad i can brake and turn now lol

Noticed the steering when I test drove before signing the papers. I actually like the firm steering. Feels like I have more response.

Yes turning radius is wide but it is a BIG truck

On my GT 350 I prefer the performance mode which is tight / heavy.

Curious why would you buy the truck if this was an issue? Just kind of curious.....

I noticed this as well and I was actually considering asking the same question here. I like the heavy feel of the steering, personally, but it was also unexpected and wanted to make sure it was normal (didn't notice it in the few test drives but also didn't really maneuver low speed parking lots). Looks like it is!
