Disappointment surrounding the 2016 Toyota Tundra continues as the highway safety results have been released. The only truck that earned itself a good rating was the Ford F-150. The results showed that the Tundra has a great deal to improve on with the small frontal overlap tests.
The small frontal overlap test is a test that simulates the effects of a vehicle if it should crash into a tree or telephone pole with the front corner of the vehicle.
The Toyota Tundra managed to get a score of acceptable with the double cab but with the CrewMax the score was marginal. This means that the vehicle has poor results for the lower leg and foot.
The Toyota Tundra double cab managed a score of good for the roof strength test, while the CrewMax only managed to get a score of acceptable.
This may be somewhat disappointing as the Toyota Tundra should be able to receive a rating of good, as the Prius does.
