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 Muscular but lower in fat thanks to turbo V-6 power, the 2013 Ford F-150 shares the truck lead thanks to extreme towing capability and best-in-class tech features. The 2013 Chevrolet Silverado lineup appeals to truck traditionalists, offering a straightforward package that isn't as bold or fashionable as rivals but delivers in every way a truck should.
