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 Avalanche offers a rare combination of six-passenger comfort and an eight-foot pickup bed when you need it (though not at the same time).

The Cadillac Escalade EXT is structurally identical to the Avalanche but carries a stiff luxury premium.

The Honda Ridgeline is a cheaper choice, but not by much-and the light-duty truck only has a short pickup bed, offering no flexibility with cabin and bed space.

The Ford F-150 and Dodge Ram both come in four-door versions with fixed beds and fixed rear seats, but often at a much lower base price than the highly featured Avalanche.

The 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche flexes its midsection to show off a versatile Midgate, but you'll notice its luxe features and nicely trimmed cabin, too.

All-new engines across the 2011 Ford F-150 model line finally give these full-size trucks strong (yet efficient) performance to match their macho looks.

If you need a better-driving truck that can haul the goods on occasion, the 2011 Honda Ridgeline might be a better choice than a true full-sizer.

The 2011 Ram 1500 vies with the latest Ford F-150 as the most desirable full-size pickup truck you can buy.
