Once Toyota found their FWD vehicles so patently UNSAFE on adverse, slippery, roadbeds they began using TDC, Traction-Directional Control, on FWD vehicles as early as 2000 (RX300). It was often not included in their F/awd models since it was assumed, mistakenly so, that F/awd would make the difference.
Most manufacturers of FWD vehicles initially adopt TDC and then only later (due to customer complaints..??) add the TDC "off" functionality.
The rather strange thing is that as RWD manufacturers initially adopted TC (Directional Control not an issue) they seem to have added the "off" functionality from the get-go.
I would imagine that any car that has a VSC indicator that cycles on then off at ignition start would have VSC. TDC, or TC, is generally considered a sub-function of VSC or VDIM for later models.

Im pretty sure this is a federal mandated feature for 2011 and beyond.
