What is Toyota Crawl Control?

Crawl Control takes over your throttle and brakes so you can focus on keeping your off-road machine pointed in the right direction. You get to pick from five low-speed settings to control just how you are going to conquer the trail.

Not only will this feature let you crawl over rocks all while maintaining the perfect speed, but it can also help you get out of sand that would otherwise trap a normal truck. This is just one more necessary feature when your mind needs to stay on the trail.
