Available Safety Features in the Toyota Tacoma

Whether you're backing out onto a busy Westerly, RI street or trying to switch lanes on the highway, the Toyota Tacoma has the safety technology to help you out. This popular mid-sized pickup truck is available at Valenti Toyota with Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alerts.

Both of these systems utilize sensors that are built into the body of the car. They can detect the presence of other vehicles based on how you're driving. When you're moving forward, the sensors keep track of your rear sides. This area is often difficult to see from the driver's seat. If another vehicle is in this spot, a light on the corresponding side mirror will let you know it's not safe to move.

When you're backing up, these sensors look out for oncoming traffic from both sides. If another vehicle is coming, visual alerts and sounds will let you know that you need to stop to avoid a collision.
