TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

TCC's Bottom Line The 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe is very comfortable, capable vehicle, built on tough, traditional building blocks; and especially in the sophisticated Tahoe Hybrid, it's no dinosaur. The 2011 Toyota Sequoia offers good towing ability, powerful V-8 engines, and a macho, over-the-top look, though in most other respects its hard to make a practical case.
