Toyota Crawl Control: What Does It Do?

Sometimes, features aren’t named in the most obvious ways. Or, if they are obvious, it may only be to a small subset of people who are already in the know. Every auto manufacturer is guilty of this at some point.

Today, we’ll help clear up an instance of that. What is Toyota crawl control and what does it do?

What Does Toyota Crawl Control Do?

Toyota Crawl Control (dubbed CRAWL) is an advanced multi-terrain system that automatically adjusts the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings so the driver can focus on steering. This feature is available on Toyota off-road vehicles, like the Tacoma, Tundra, 4Runner, and Land Cruiser. It pairs nicely with the other off-road features found on many off-road Toyota TRD models.

TRD Off-Road Features

The off-road-focused Toyota TRD models are crammed with features that make your unpaved adventures easier. For instance, Multi-terrain select has five different modes that help reduce wheelspin and traction loss by adjusting the throttle and traction control automatically. Hill start assist control stops you from rolling backwards down a hill when you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator by keeping brake pressure applied on an incline. The Multi-terrain monitor lets you check what’s under and around your tires on the navigation screen thanks to surround-view camera system. And don’t forget the nuts-and-bolts parts like the electronically locking rear differential and the Bilstein/ FOX shocks on every off-road TRD model.
