Hey I’m a new 2019 TRD OR owner and on a few instances I’ve had issues taking off from a dead stop on a hill. It almost feels like ABS kicking on if I hold the gas on it powers thru and takes me up the hill. Also it never actually holds my truck on a hill it will coast back every time I take my foot off the breaks. Anyone else have this issue

That’s strange. I have had it roll back on me but it still works on most occasions. I don’t use it as a tool, it’s just nice if I’m trying to pull out into traffic and for that few seconds it holds the truck.

While I don’t have a MT, I know the truck does this for most people with the OR model. While it’s not ideal, it don’t think it’s broken and your truck is behaving normally in this case.

You can use the extra power button that’s located in the center console area below the climate controls. This will give you a better throttle response overall.
Pretty sure the OR has this feature

It wont hold your truck , it will slow the truck down as best as it can so you dont go back and gain momentum, just patting the brakes , also if throttle response is a issue there is a great forum on what you can do about that

I have this same problem. Freaked me out the first time it did it. My fix is to engage it on level ground before going into it. Kinda like foreplay. Gotta play with it a little first before going hard.
