Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2014-19 models

Tested vehicle: 2016 Toyota Tundra SR5 CrewMax 2wd
The Toyota Tundra CrewMax was redesigned for the 2007 model year. Beginning with 2010 models, the driver and passenger frontal airbags and front seat belts were modified and knee airbags for the driver and front passenger were added. Beginning with 2014 models, the side curtain airbags were lengthened and reprogrammed to deploy in small overlap and moderate overlap frontal crashes to improve occupant protection.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Action shot taken during the driver-side small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame, steering wheel, and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was not maintained well.

The frontal and side curtain airbags worked well together to keep the head from coming close to any stiff structure or outside objects that could cause injury.

Intrusion of the door hinge pillar, toepan, and instrument panel contributed to a high risk of injury to the left lower leg, a significant risk to the left foot, and a moderate risk to the right lower leg.

Passenger restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s movement was reasonably well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with typical side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed. However, the A-pillar intruded into the passenger space to the extent that the dummy's head hit the attached grab handle during the crash.

Driver restraints and dummy kinematics

Action shot taken during the passenger-side small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame and dashboard after the crash test indicates that the passenger's survival space was not maintained well.

The frontal and side curtain airbags worked reasonably well together, but smeared pink and red greasepaint shows where the dummy's head hit the intruding A-pillar grab handle.

Extensive intrusion of the dashboard, toepan, and door hinge pillar contributed to a likely risk of injury to the right lower leg and a significant risk to the right hip.

Action shot taken during the moderate overlap frontal crash test.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head contacted the side curtain airbag during rebound.

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.

Forces on the right foot were sufficiently high to indicate the possibility of injuries.

Rating applies to 2014-19 models

Tested vehicle: 2016 Toyota Tundra SR5 CrewMax 2wd
The Toyota Tundra CrewMax was redesigned for the 2007 model year. Beginning with 2014 models, the side curtain and side torso airbags as well as the front seat structure were modified to improve occupant protection in side impact crashes.

On the straightaway, visibility was fair on the left side of the road and inadequate on the right side. On curves, visibility was inadequate in all 4 tests.

The low beams created some glare.

High beams
On the straightaway, visibility was good on the right side of the road and inadequate on the left side. On curves, visibility was inadequate in all 4 tests.
