Safety
For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Toyota Tundra are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger body types. In a accident a better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Ram 1500 has only front height-adjustable seat belts.
