The Tundra doesn't hold back on airbags, with side-impact airbags in front and side curtain airbags standard on all versions.
Cars.com


The 2013 Toyota Tundra is big and brawny, no doubt. And it offers impressive occupant protection.

The Tundra meets the competition head-on for the most part, with a solid array of active and passive safety features. Though there aren't advanced options for technology like blind-spot monitors, the Tundra does comes with standard dual front, side, curtain and knee airbags, as well as stability control and anti-lock brakes.

Options you'll want is the rearview camera and parking sensors are optional on the Tundra, and that's good, because its high tailgate and overall size mean visibility isn't always the best--though the seating position is high, and outward visibility ahead and to the sides is good.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Tundra four stars overall, including four stars in frontal impact and five stars for side impact. And the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the Tundra its Top Safety Pick award, with top scores in frontal, side, and rear tests, as well as roof strength.

Conclusion

As verified by U.S. safety agencies, the 2013 Tundra is one safe truck.

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.
