The 2010 Toyota Tundra is one of the safest pickups on the market, with almost perfect crash-test scores and more safety equipment than most rival models.

The Tundra gets mostly top five-star ratings in federal crash tests (except for four stars for the driver with the Regular Cab) and three or four stars in rollover resistance. It also earns the top "good" rating in all of the IIHS tests for frontal, side, and rear impact.

Front-seat side airbags, roll-sensing side airbags, and front knee bags are all standard on the 2010 Tundra, as are electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes. Cars.com adds that more safety features arrive in the form of "an optional camera in the tailgate to improve visibility when backing up or hitching a trailer." Also, opting for the top-end Limited trim of the Toyota Tundra brings "front and rear parking sonar," according to Kelley Blue Book, which piles on even more accident prevention capability.

ConsumerGuide reports that "good outward visibility" is a strength for the truck; the aforementioned rear camera further helps spot obstacles when parking or backing up with a trailer. Kelley Blue Book adds that the "tall seating position makes it easy to see the highway ahead."

Conclusion

The 2010 Toyota Tundra has all the safety features you might want in a full-size truck, along with decent crash-test ratings.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
