2023 Tundra Safety Features

With Toyota, your safety comes first. That’s why the entire 2023 Tundra lineup – no matter which powertrain or trim level you choose – comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) 2.5 and the Star Safety System.

Toyota Safety Sense 2.5

Founded on the previous technologies of Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 is an updated suite of safety features that helps you navigate the road with ease and peace of mind. It does its job through built-in sensors and cameras dotted all over your Tundra. Here are the systems it offers:

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

TSS 2.5’s pre-collision system can tell when your Tundra is getting dangerously close to a nearby object — whether that be a wall, another car, or anything else. It can also sense bicyclists during the day and people walking near your car at any time. The system issues an auditory warning and may brake the vehicle if you don’t respond in time.

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist 

TSS 2.5 is always tracking where the side of the road is and where each lane ends and begins. If you’re drifting out of your lane, an audio and visual warning alarm will alert you to the situation. If needed, your Tundra will make minor steering corrections to guide the vehicle back into its lane.

Automatic High Beams  

TSS 2.5 detects the headlight activity on other cars and uses this information to toggle your vehicle's high beams on and off automatically. This way, you can avoid blinding other drivers while still enjoying a well-lit roadway.

Road Sign Assist 

You may accidentally overlook passing road signs while driving, but TSS 2.5 won’t. It reads common signs like “Speed Limit,” “Stop,” “Yield,” and “Do Not Enter” and puts them on your Tundra’s Multi-Information Display screen for easy reference. It may also alert you if you disobey a sign.

Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control 

TSS 2.5 knows how fast you’re going, but it knows how fast other cars are going, too. That’s how it adjusts your Tundra’s speed to keep your vehicle a safe distance away from others using Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. You can choose from one of three distances as guidelines for the system to follow.

The system reacts accordingly when a car in front of you is slow or when a new car enters the lane. Once it’s safe and there’s enough space, your Tundra will accelerate back to your set speed.

Every Tundra model has Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. That means you can set your cruise speed from 25 to 110 miles per hour.

Lane Tracing Assist 

When the Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Lane Departure Alert are on, TSS 2.5’s Lane Tracing Assist kicks on with it. It reads the lines of the road and constantly adjusts the steering wheel to keep your Tundra centered in the lane.

Star Safety System

Like Toyota Safety Sense 2.5, the Star Safety System works to keep you safe. But it does its work behind the scenes through technology that doesn't interact with the driver directly, so you may not even notice it. Here are its systems:

Vehicle Stability Control 

In dangerous situations like turning a sharp corner or hydroplaning, Vehicle Stability Control helps keep your Tundra’s traction intact. First, it senses if the car is going in a different direction from where the driver is steering, which indicates lost traction. Then it reduces engine power and increases your Tundra's brake force on specific wheels.

Traction Control 

Vehicle Stability Control isn’t the only system that looks over traction — so does Traction Control. It can tell if the drive wheel, or the wheel that actively pushes or pulls the car down the road, is turning faster than the others. This usually means traction has been lost, so it reduces engine power to give the wheel a chance to re-grip. If this doesn’t work, it will brake the wheel.

Anti-lock Brake System 

While the other systems work hard to prevent traction loss, the Anti-lock Brake System comes into play if the situation gets worse. You may hit the brakes hard when losing traction, which could lock the brakes in place. If the Anti-lock Brake System senses that the brakes are applied and the Tundra is still skidding, it will pulse the brakes at the affected wheels until their speed evens out.

Electronic Brake-force Distribution 

The Anti-lock Brake System has many moving parts, and one unique function is the Electronic Brake-force Distribution. Hard braking will often shift your Tundra’s weight, and that can be dangerous. The Electronic Brake-force Distribution reduces brake pressure on wheels that aren’t carrying much weight, which helps keep the vehicle stable.

Brake Assist 

Brake Assist does exactly what it sounds like – it helps you brake effectively. It detects if you press the brake suddenly and can apply additional brake pressure if needed.

Smart Stop Technology 

On a system with only two pedals, sometimes it’s easy to accidentally mistake them and brake instead of accelerating or vice versa. That’s where Smart Stop TechnologyⓇ comes in. It stops the Tundra when both the brake and accelerator pedals are pressed simultaneously, which often happens during a pedal mistake.

Drivers are responsible for their own safe driving. Always pay attention to your surroundings and drive safely. System effectiveness is dependent on many factors including road, weather and vehicle conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
