Capacity, Handling and Ride
Toyota Tacoma offers some of the most sophisticated dynamic control technology in the segment. Standard on all models Toyota Tacoma is the star of Safety System ™, which includes anti-lock brakes (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC ) and Traction Control (TRAC). An automatic limited slip differential (LSD-car), which uses brake intervention to help reduce tire slippage at the rear wheels, is standard on all models Toyota Tacoma.
The VSC, TRAC, which integrates, enhances traction on or off-road, helping to keep the vehicle on the trajectory. VSC detects front wheel slide and rear wheel slide during cornering and attempts to control either condition with throttle intervention and / or by braking individual wheels. Auto-LSD employs sensors and hardware to provide the limited slip effect on the rear wheels.
EBD optimizes brake pressure at each wheel independently for greater control under braking, especially when cornering. BA is designed to determine if the driver is attempting emergency braking. If the driver has not pressed firmly enough on the brake pedal to engage the ABS, system integrators applied braking power until pedal pressure is released.
The TRD Off-Road Package on 4x4 V6 automatic models includes Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and Downhill Assist Control (DAC). HAC operates independently from the control of the braking on each wheel, as necessary to prevent the vehicle from rolling backward or slipping sideways during transition from one position to stop up the ranks. DAC uses engine braking to regulate downhill speed and independently control the brakes at each wheel to help improve directional control. DAC off automatically if the driver presses the brake or the accelerator pedal, press the DAC, or shifts into neutral.
To meet the specific needs of off-road enthusiast, TRD Off-Road packages feature a rear locking differential that can be activated by an electronic switch mounted in the cabin. This feature allows you to request the power to be distributed evenly on both rear wheels to increase traction overall. An electronic rear differential is available on 4x4 models and 4x2 PreRunner.
