Ford used to use something very similar in their F150's, maybe still do? I had a couple. The problem was that they were built like crap, and after half a dozen uses they quite working - the usual failure mode being the second "step" in the jack would stop working, meaning they would no longer go high enough.
Possibly the Toyota one is much better, but I honestly wouldn't put much faith in any OEM jack. There pure costs for the OEM. No one pays attention to the jack quality, or uses it to decide on what vehicle to buy - so they go lowest possible cost to build as most people never use them or use them once or twice in the life of the vehicle.
