2007 Toyota Tundra Misses Perfect Score in Crash Tests

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Toyota's redesigned 2007 Tundra pickup truck did not get the top rating for frontal crash safety that rival domestic trucks achieved, according to new tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Tundra earned four stars in head-on collision tests by the federal government, one short of a perfect five-star rating. Big pickups from General Motors and Ford earned five stars.

The NHTSA Web site on Wednesday said the '07 Tundra has yet to be rated for side-impact crashworthiness and rollovers.

NHTSA's latest crash tests also awarded four stars in frontal crashes to Nissan's Frontier compact pickup.
