Performance Features

The Toyota Tacoma tow package isn’t the only feature that helps McComb drivers out with tough jobs. There are numerous performance features on the Tacoma that contribute to a stable towing experience:

  • Trailer Sway Control: This feature is a part of the Toyota Tacoma tow package. It adjusts the brakes and manages engine torque when the wind picks up, resulting in smoother trailering.
  • Electronically Locking Rear Differential: This distributes power evenly on your wheels, giving you more control.
  • Hill Start Assist: Powering a trailer up a hill can feel scary, but with Hill Start Assist, things are much easier. This kicks in as you’re moving your from the brake to the gas pedal.

These kinds of features are what make the Tacoma and other Toyota trucks like the Tundra so beloved by those who need serious power and control on their trucks.
