We at Thousand Oaks Toyota were excited to hear Toyota and Lexus make the announcement that they will standardize the Automated Braking system on their vehicles. This is four years earlier than the original plan announced recently.
The system is already available as an option on some of the brand’s models, but now all models are scheduled to have the Automated Braking system as a standard feature by the end of 2017.
Toyota is committed to keeping people safe through their Toyota Safety Sense. Now Toyota takes safety a step further. Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota Motor North America states that “High-level driver assist technologies can do more than help protect people in the event of a crash; they can help prevent some crashes from ever happening in the first place.”
There are multiple driver assist technologies on Toyota vehicles. These technologies help to prevent frontal collisions, keep drivers in their lane, and enhance safety during hazardous conditions.
The schedule of specific models to be outfitted with Automated Braking has not yet been announced, but visit us and we’ll keep you up to date on all of Toyota’s safety technology. In the meantime, check out the full selection of new Toyota vehicles available at Thousand Oaks Toyota!
