All Tundras come with Toyota’s Star Safety System; it includes antilock brakes and brake-force distribution. It reapportions brake force to each wheel to reduce forward tilt. It functions in both normal and emergency braking situations.

Also in emergency situations, “brake assist” applies additional brake pressure. In panic brake situations, drivers often fail to apply enough pressure to the brake pedal. Brake-assist sensors detect panic braking and the system applies additional pressure to help stop the vehicle. Traction control maintains traction on wet, icy and loose or uneven surfaces. It applies brakes individually and reduces engine output to assist the driver with control of the vehicle. The front internal bumper substructure transfers offset front impact forces through the frame rails.

Also standard are side curtain air bags. They inflate whenever the vehicle senses it has reached the point of inevitable rollover. The Tundra also has front seat driver and passenger air bags.
