About a month ago, we told you about the all-new Toyota Tundra's
stunning four star
NHTSA crash test
score, which was lower than the five stars received by the F-150
and Silverado. Toyota
seemed as surprised
as anyone else by the test scores, and now they've saved some face by getting the highest possible score of "Good"
from the IIHS
in front crash testing for both the 2WD and 4WD Double Cab model.
The poor showing in the NHTSA
crash score testing was yet another blow to the Tundra
as it was searching for respect in the ultra-competitive full-size pickup market, and with a "Good" score from the IIHS, we think the San Antonio-made Tundra got quite a bit of that respect back.
