Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
As the first full-size pickup to offer Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)1 and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA),2,3Tundra continues to redefine the segment. When the available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) detects a vehicle, it illuminates a warning indicator on the appropriate outside mirror to alert you to the presence of another vehicle, helping you to determine when it’s safe to change lanes. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) works in much the same way. When you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, it provides audible and visual indicators to help warn you of approaching vehicles.
Star Safety System™
Tundra comes standard with the Star Safety System™, a suite of six advanced safety features that includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC),4 Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA)5 and Smart Stop Technology.6
Tundra comes equipped with driver and front outboard passenger airbags, side curtain and front seat-mounted side airbags. And only Tundra has driver/front outboard passenger knee airbags.7 No other truck has that.
To help keep children safe and secure, Tundra has LATCH, which stands for “Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children.” With lower anchors on the outboard rear seats and a tether anchor on the rear center seat, LATCH allows you to securely mount a child seat quickly and easily.
Toyota is devoted to safety and dependability, and proper vehicle maintenance is important to both. That’s why we include a no cost maintenance plan8 with the purchase or lease of every new Tundra for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. 24-hour roadside assistance9 is also included for 2 years and unlimited miles.
1 Do not rely exclusively on the Blind Spot Monitor. Always look over your shoulder and use your turn signal. There are limitations to the function, detection and range of the monitor. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.2 Do not rely exclusively on the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm rear clearance. There are limitations to the function, detection and range of the system. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.

4 Vehicle Stability Control is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions, weather and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
5 Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper vehicle maintenance, and tire and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
6 Smart Stop Technology® operates only in the event of certain contemporaneous brake and accelerator pedal applications. When engaged, the system will reduce power to help the brakes bring the vehicle to a stop. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver input can all impact stopping distance. Smart Stop Technology® is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving and does not guarantee instant stopping. See Owner’s Manual for details.
7 All the airbag systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All airbags (if installed) are designed to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating airbag, always wear seatbelts and sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible. Do not put objects in front of an airbag or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. See Owner’s Manual for further information/warnings.
