What is Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and What Can it Do?

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is a standard fixture for Toyota models that are equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense™-P (TSS-P) package. Models equipped with TSS-P include the Highlander Hybrid, Avalon, RAV4 Hybrid, Prius, Sequoia, C-HR, Tundra, Highlander, Land Cruiser, Camry, RAV4, Prius Prime, Corolla and Avalon Hybrid. With Dynamic Radar Cruise Control at your disposal, you can drive at a preset speed on the highway with vehicle-to-vehicle distance control that automatically adjusts speed and will ensure you maintain a safe driving distance in traffic.
An innovative radar system mounted on the front grille of your Toyota model works in tandem with a forward-mounted, in-vehicle camera to detect vehicles and monitor the distance between vehicles. When you are cruising at a preset speed with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and approach a vehicle that is moving at a slower speed, this innovative safety system will automatically reduce speed without deactivating cruise control. In the event that you need to brake faster, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control provides audio and visual alerts. Advanced trims may employ Full-Speed Range Dynamic Cruise Control that has the ability to operate at speeds up to 110 mph.
