Large pickups flub newest crash test
October 30, 2023

The rating criteria for the updated moderate overlap front test were adjusted in 2024 to better account for variations in the position of the rear shoulder belt. The ratings provided in this news release reflect the methodology that IIHS used at the time of publication. Under the new methodology, the Toyota Tundra’s overall rating is poor instead of marginal. In addition, some of the component ratings changed for vehicles whose overall ratings remained the same. Up-to-date ratings using the current criteria can be found in the vehicle ratings section of our website. The news release can be viewed at

Three of four large pickups tested earn poor ratings in the Institute's updated moderate overlap front test, but the group performed well in the updated side test.
