: Descent control

So I was on edmund.com comparing the Tacoma to the Nissan Frontier, in the features it said that Descent control is an option on the 05 Tacoma, and I have heard about descent control being on the Tacoma somewhere else as well. I went to Toyota website to learn just what decent control is and how it works, but there is nothing on their website about it and it is not listed as an option. My question is, Do Tacoma’s have Descent control? and how does it work, is it the same as Volkswagens, Hill Descent Assist?

I think it's called Downhill Assist, it kills the abs and applies the braking to the correct tires to prevent slipping.

Yeah, they've been putting that in the 4Runners for a couple of years now.
