Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Toyota Tundra was introduced in the 2000 model year.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the head and chest indicate low risk of injuries in a crash of this severity. Forces on the right tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.
