If that comes to mind when you think about off-road adventures, the Toyota Tacoma Crawl Control feature is a tremendous asset. When you engage Crawl Control you can select a speed from 1 to 5 mph. The system will then take over acceleration and braking, allowing you to focus on navigating the rocky terrain.

Electronic Locking Rear Differential

When equipped with four-wheel drive, the Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road trim level adds a standard electronically controlled locking rear differential.
