Toyota Tacoma Crawl Control
Some call this sand mode for short. The system conquers sandy inclines, deep mud, snow drifts, or for straight-up rock crawling. Utilizing stability control feedback, wheel speeds and braking sensors, this system takes over acceleration and braking on an individual-wheel basis so all you do is steer. Yep, you take your feet off the pedals and steer. A computer will detect driveline slippage and even keep the vehicle from digging itself in a rut, as well as limit speed to 5 mph. Toyota introduced Crawl Control in 2008.
