When it comes to safety, the 2018 Toyota Tacoma doesn’t mess
around. It’s considered the pickup truck with the most standard safety features
in its class and currently holds a four-star safety rating from the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Here, we take a look at some of the
safety features you will find in the 2018 Tacoma.
Every 2018 Tacoma comes outfitted with the Toyota Safety Sense™ P package. This means that you will automatically receive some of the most innovative safety technologies on your truck. In this package, you will find tech like a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, which uses an in-vehicle camera and radar to detect a vehicle or pedestrian in front of you to mitigate a potential collision; Lane Departure Alert, which detects when you’re leaving your current lane unintentionally; and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, which uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control to adjust your speed when your cruise control function is on. It also includes Automatic High Beams to help you see better at night.
To ensure every Tacoma is up to safety standards, each truck comes with an advanced suite of safety features called the Toyota Star Safety System™ that are hidden away throughout the body. This includes Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop Technology®.
Toyota has a reputation for safety and dependability, which is built on the ToyotaCare no-cost maintenance plan. When you purchase or lease a new Tacoma, you will automatically be covered by this plan for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. You will also receive 24-hour roadside assistance for either two years or unlimited miles. So, if you find yourself stranded on the side of the road, you don’t need to worry about your safety – simply call Toyota and we will send someone to take care of your Tacoma’s issues, no matter what.
Toyota is famous not just for its innovative safety technologies but also for its superior manufacturing process that leads to better reliability on the road—and thus increased safety. With the 2018 Toyota Tacoma, you’ll feel more confident behind the wheel than ever before.
