    Toyota has been putting this feature standard on many of their vehicles. I'm curious to see if they add it to the 2018 Tacoma.
    Toyota Safety Sense-P (TSS-P). This bundle includes lane-departure warning with automatic steering correction, adaptive cruise control to maintain a set distance from traffic ahead, and automatic high-beam headlight control. Most significant, it includes autonomous emergency braking that can stop the vehicle to mitigate a frontal collision with another car or a pedestrian.

    I was told by a toyota sales stating that it is the policy for toyota since 2017. But, my 2017 tacoma and Toyota Yaris don't have it on. So I believe it is only for selected vehicles.

    I believe it was confirmed the Tacoma and Tundra were getting the safety sense tech.

    My wife's 2017 Platinum RAV4 has it. Very nice features.

    Can you turn them all on/off? Activate them only when you want to use them?

    This feature on my toyota IM, I may turn it on and off. However; the lane control(if I'm right) seems doesn't work well. The distance control works fine. It brakes when you are close enough to an object.

    I would only want them if I could activate them when I wanted. Tacoma's are made to go off road. It seems like some of these would be annoying while on a trail. Also how will all of these effect the mods we all like to do. Sensors in the grill and bumpers.

    Yes. Buttons for each. Auto brights are disabled by turning off auto lights and pulling the bright switch back. The dynamic radar cruise control is probably the coolest one though.

    It’s definitely a feature I’d like to have too if you could turn it on and off as wanted.

    We never turn them off in her car. The features are way too cool to not use them. It does feel as if it may make people worse drivers though. You end up relying heavily on them once you get used to them, driving a car without them is like not having power steering. 1st world problems.

    Makes since in a family car, commuter car or daily driver to have them on all the time. Not so much in an off-road truck.
    Beep, flash, beep, flash, beep beep... :eek: I know I see the tree and rock and bush shut it down.

    Doesn't quite work that way. The precollision system doesn't really work all that well. It didn't even brake for me the one time I managed to activate it.
    Some of the features don't even turn on until you are above 32mph. The lane departure is one, and man oh man do we love that feature. We play with it all the time. It's just so cool to see the vehicle steer itself back into the middle of the road. So long as there are good lines on a mostly straight road, it'll just about drive itself keeping in the lines, slowing down with dynamic cruise and hopefully emergency braking. If you activate any features too much in a short amount of time, the car shows a coffee cup icon and tells you to take a nap. Lol.

    Who would have ever thought when we were kids watching Knight Rider that Kitt would come standard in Toyota’s one day.

    Ord17trd and rest of the members of forum. I had a talk with a Toyota marketing product specialist yesterday. These people are the most knowledgeable individuals on the vehicles. Every car manufacturer has them. They usually only work the auto shows these are people who can get dealers in trouble doing or saying wrong things.

    Anyways it is a standard on all toyota's. What the person said it is a NTSB and DOT safety standard so all vehicles are to have them mandatory by the end of 2018. On top of that they are very aware of many issues with the Tacoma and sounds as the engineers and mechanics are putting there trucks thru research why many issues are happening with tacomas. Sounds like there not really gonna fix a problem unless it becomes dangerous issue.

    As for national regulations the state of New York is the most strict then California behind. The nation vehicle market as those of us that enjoy the outdoors are going to be screwed what sounds as to with all the computerized equipment that is going to put into the vehicles. There will be more restrictions that our trucks will not be able to do. Within 5 years we will be able to buy a self driving car.. a suggestion is to start seeking to buy older trucks and stick with the pre-2015 Tacoma

    This info I received from a Toyota marketing product specialist face to face.

    I think the new 2018 pro will have blind spot warning and some other non usable functions lol. It won't have lane assist.
