An active safety system that is standard on the 2022 Toyota Tacoma is Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD). Some safety features are optional on the 2022 Toyota Tacoma--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) and Blind Spot Monitor.
