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 Ford Mustang is the Camaro's longtime rival; but there's so little love between them it's hard to call them models that are cross-shopped.

Between them, the Mustang is packaged better, can be less expensive and better on gas, and when it's fitted with its own magical V-8, rushes through the 400- and 500-horsepower bogeys with exhilarating speed.

But at the top of their lineups, we'd probably go for the ZL1 over the latest Shelby GT500 when soul-searching for the better driving experience.

With its Hemi soundtrack and enormous deck and hood, the Dodge Challenger looks the part of retro musclecar the best; it also has exceptional ride quality, but it drives like the bigger car it is.

The Nissan 370Z is an enticing alternative to either muscle car, giving up the back seat completely, but with more nimble handling and a strong performance punch.

Those looking only at the low end of the price range might find the Hyundai Genesis Coupe alluring.

Its turbo four and excellent road manners prove a formidable rival to base Mustangs and Camaros, although it's a left-field suggestion to most muscle-car guys.

The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro may have a somewhat gimmicky wrapper, but in its ZL1 and Z/28 guises especially this muscle machine turns into a serious performance car with truly entertaining handling.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat rules the roost; meanwhile the entire Challenger lineup gets more retro-modern than ever—all while offering up touring comfort you won't find in the other muscle coupes.

The 2015 Ford Mustang finally makes the rear-end switch--and the SVO's back, at least in spirit.
