Explore Everything Columbia, SC has to Offer in your New 2017 Toyota Tacoma

November 30th, 2017 by

When the trails of Columbia, South Carolina start to get challenging, the Crawl Control (CRAWL) [1] feature found on the 2017 Tacoma TRD Off-Road models at Dick Dyer Toyota is there to help you conquer any off-road adventure. An advanced system that automatically modulates the throttle and brakes of your Tacoma on five low-speed settings, this innovative feature allows owners to keep their focus on navigating across difficult terrain. Toyota Tacoma gets a compact, light and efficient electronic shift transfer case across all 4×4 grades for model year 2017. That means that South Carolina owners can now easily switch between high-range 4WD, low-range 4WD or high-range 2WD with just the simple turning of a dial. The 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road comes standard with an electronically controlled locking rear differential that distributes engine power evenly to both rear wheels so they move at the same speed, providing more grip when you need it the most, in low-traction conditions. You won’t have to worry about knee-deep sand give you the slip anymore, because your new 2017 Tacoma from Dick Dyer Toyota has got you covered.

New 2017 Tacoma TRD Off-Road models also come with the innovative Multi-terrain Select feature. With five modes to choose from, this innovative off-road system helps to regulate wheelspin by automatically adjusting the engine throttle and traction control of your new Tacoma. When combined with standard Goodyear Wrangler® tires with tough Kevlar® construction, the Multi-terrain Select feature of the 2017 Toyota Tacoma can help to improve traction dramatically on a variety of Columbia, South Carolina driving surfaces. Another handy feature found on 2017 Tacoma models, Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) [2], can help you safely get up South Carolina hills. This technology helps to keep your Tacoma from rolling backward when you move your foot from the brake to the gas pedal, allowing owners to move upward with confidence (HAC not available on TRD Off-Road 4WD M/T). Whatever the job calls fall, or whatever obstacles are standing in your way, the new 2017 Toyota Tacoma offers all the tools you’ll need to come out on top.

[1] Crawl Control is designed for driving on difficult terrain at low speeds. It assists the driver by controlling acceleration and braking, allowing the driver to focus on steering. The Toyota Tacoma is designed to meet off-road driving requirements, but off-roading is inherently dangerous. Always wear seatbelts. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.

[2] Hill Start Assist Control is designed to help minimize backward rolling on steep ascents. It is not a substitute for safe driving judgment and practices. Factors including grade, surface conditions and driver input can all affect whether HAC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. See Owner’s Manual for details.

[3] The Toyota Tire Pressure Monitor alerts the driver when tire pressure is critically low. For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge; do not rely solely on the monitor system. See Owner’s Manual for details.
