The LT that we drove did not have it. Maybe it is an SS option.

According to the "Initial Ordering Workbook", it's standard in all models.

Certainly is helpful! It took me a while to find the right configuration of seat position, back position, and wheel position to feel comfortable.

I had a Nissan Altima that I rented for a few weeks to drive while my truck was in the shop and it hand the telescoping wheel. I didn't know it had it till I allowed my dad to drive it and he changed the tilt on the wheel. It had a handle under the wheel you pulled down to tilt it. Well at the same time I had an itch, I was tilting the wheel and pushed in and the wheel pushed in. I then pulled out and the wheel pulled out, I almost thought I broke it!! Maybe the Camaro is like this, It may be the same control as the tilt but it takes a little effort to get it to telescope.

well it's great for people built like a T-Rex... big long legs, big heads and short tiny arms...

It's just another level of adjustment to fit different sized people and driving styles and positions. I think its awesome! This car really has a lot of great features most of it's kind wouldn't.

I think it's great that it does, my Saab has it and I get annoyed if a car doesn't have it.

There is a lever on the left side of the column that unlocks it. Slide in and out and lock it down where you want it with the lever.

and yeah, our vovlo XC90 had it, but we didnt figure that out for a while, we just pulled the lever and tilted it. then one day we some how accidentally pulled it, and it came out. so maybe thats why you didnt notice on the one you sat in. its in them alll

I don't know about the Mustang, but some Fords have adjustable pedals. Adjustable pedals, steering wheel and seat is the only way to get a perfect fit, just like in an aircraft. Wish the Camaro had the pedals, but the telescoping steering wheel is an immense help for us long-legged folk!
