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.

The Buick Enclave offers shoppers a stepping stone between mass-market minivan replacements and upscale luxury crossovers.

As such, it's drawn into a dogfight with vehicles like the Lexus RX, a popular five-seat crossover with a luxury owner experience and an available hybrid model.

The Dodge Durango's another viable alternative--not on a taste scale but on a raw capacity scale, and it tows more thanks to available HEMI V-8 power.

The Acura MDX is a direct competitor, without the Buick's suave good looks but with a bulletproof reputation for durability and a vast, flexible interior.

Finally, the Audi Q7 and Lincoln MKT represent the opposite poles of the luxury-crossover market that brackets the big Buick: the MKT's a bodacious crossover with polarizing looks and sky's-the-limit technology, while the Q7 offers a demure German take, with less interior space but tighter road manners and an available diesel model with good highway fuel economy.

A composed family hauler most of the time, the 2013 Dodge Durango isn't afraid of getting its hands dirty when it needs to.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Lexus RX is plush and premium, and it delivers on that luxury impression, but it's not the over-the-top lavish expression some might seek.

TCC Rating
The shape of the 2013 Lincoln MKT might be polarizing, but there's undeniable charm in its luxurious cabin, its feature set and, surprisingly, its (EcoBoost) driving experience.
