Toyota Crawl Control was made to get you through the most unforgiving terrain by operating the braking and acceleration of your vehicle during low-speed off-road conditions so you can put all of your efforts into steering.

Using Toyota Crawl Control in equipped models is pretty simple. In order to activate this feature, your vehicle will need to be completely stopped and your foot will need to be pressing the brake. From there, switch into neutral and turn your 4×4 system to low. Then, depending on need, switch into drive or reverse and press the Crawl Control button. You will also need to select a speed/position from 1-5 depending on terrain. We have included a speed mode guide on this page, but you can also find this information in your owner’s manual. Once all of your settings have been selected, depress the brakes and Toyota Crawl Control should take over. Pressing the brake or accelerator while Toyota Crawl Control is activated will turn it off.
