Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Toyota Tundra was introduced in the 2000 model year.
Restraints/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.
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.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.
- The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.
- Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit only the head restraint, as indicated by smeared greasepaint.
- Forces on the right lower leg were high enough to indicate the possibility of injury.
- Side airbags: front and rear head curtain airbags with front seat-mounted torso airbags (optionally available in 4-door crew cab models only, beginning with 2006 models)
- Electronic stability control (optional beginning with 2004 models)
- Antilock brakes (standard beginning with 2003 models, optional on 2000-02 models)
- Daytime running lights (optional)
