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.

Full-size pickups have been hit hard by the recession and new fuel-economy rules.

No brands are more aware of this than Toyota and Nissan.

The Toyota Tundra was new for 2008 and hasn't sold well; its unusual styling debuted not much before the financial crisis unfolded and killed half of all truck sales.

Nissan's Titan simply failed to launch-introduced a few years back, sales are tottering below 20,000 units, despite its rorty V-8 engine and factory-outfitted bed options.

The real competition for the big Chevy is GM's own, nearly identical GMC Sierra; the Dodge Ram, which rides smoothly and has a standout style, inside and out, to go with hugely capable towing and hauling numbers; and the Ford F-150, which claims to have the highest towing numbers in the land, though they're teamed to a dullsville look that's relieved somewhat by a luxe interior.

The 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Silverado Hybrid honor their work-truck roots, but know how to play up to rich folk.

TCC Rating
The Ford F-150 is a solid truck that is due for its 2009 model makeover, but it’s good enough that it may be all the truck you need or want.

The 2008 Nissan Titan is a solid choice for guys who don't want to drive Ford, Chevy, Dodge or Toyota.
