Unlock the Full Power of Your Pickup
If you own a Toyota Tundra, you already know you have one of the best-engineered machines on the market. What you may not know is that your trusty truck has a few secrets of its own -- secrets that can actually make your life easier as you cruise through the streets of Nelson -- or head out into the Selkirk Mountains. Join the knowledgeable Tundra gurus of Nelson Toyota as we dive into the handiest (and most surprising) features your pickup offers.
Sure -- you’ve seen the various Toyota Safety Sense system options on your dash, but do you know what they do or how to use them? Once you get the hang of these smart driving assistance features, you’ll never look back. While the Pre-Collision System and Automatic High Beams operate without any prompting, the Lane Departure Alert and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control have to be turned on for you to benefit from them.
What exactly do they do? Using radars that emit from your Tundra, these systems work to monitor where other vehicles are on the road -- and where the road, itself, is. If you begin to veer off Highway 6 on your way into the Kootenay Mountains, an alert will sound to help you centre yourself and return to safety. In the same manner, if the traffic in front of you changes speed, your radar system will work to match their speed so you avoid a collision. Toyota Safety Sense is just one of the ways that Tundra does more for drivers.
Trucks and trailers go together like peanut butter and jelly. Because the majority of Tundra drivers will at some point need to tow a trailer behind them, Toyota has come up with clever ways to simplify the process. For starters, there is an entire trailer information centre on the main dash screen -- you just have to know where to get to it. Under the tiny vehicle light icon, you’ll notice a blue bar beside the information display. This bar is actually a scroll bar, meaning you can tab down to see more info. Two sections down, you’ll find all the data you need to keep your trailer functioning properly.
Behind the scenes, great technical features like the Trailer Brake Controller, Trailer Sway Control along with various other stabilizers help to keep you travelling safely to your destination. Whether you’re going to the job site our you’re on your way to a family camping trip, having Toyota’s crafted safety systems working alongside you gives you the peace of mind to tow like a pro.
