This system is an upgrade over traditional systems and provides drivers in Surrey with excellent manoeuvrability.

Hydraulic power assist steering has been standard for a while. This system uses a pump to create the pressure needed to help you turn the wheel. Although it's been used for decades, there are drawbacks—namely, inefficiency due to the redirection of engine power toward the setup.

Electro-hydraulic steering replaces the traditional setup's hydraulic pumps with electric versions controlled on the fly while you drive. That way, there's no need to redirect engine power toward the turning system, so all of it goes toward tackling the trails.

Furthermore, at low speeds or stationary, the electric pumps can be driven faster to deliver more assistance. Then, as you speed up, they can be spun down so that complete control behind the wheel is possible.

Overall, electro-hydraulic steering makes this 4x4 pickup truck incredibly comfortable to drive. A firm feel at high speeds means more confident motoring, and better handling during low-velocity trips ensures excellent off-roading. Meanwhile, you get improved fuel usage, as well.
