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 Chevrolet Silverado is one of the top-selling trucks on the market, and the redesign for 2014 positions it as having even stronger appeal for those who want more refinement and features in a personal truck—without alienating those who use their trucks for work.

Up until this model year the Ram 1500 was the best-riding o fthe mid-size trucks, while the Ford F-150 offered the most compelling lineup of modern and efficient engines, to please every type of shopper.

The F-150 and Ram also up until this year have been more macho in styling, but that’s due to change with this taller, more imposing Silverado.

The Nissan Titan is aimed almost entirely at the personal-truck crowd—the types who are going to tow a boat on the weekend or haul hobby materials—but it looks woefully out of date inside and gets poor gas mileage.

Otherwise, the Toyota Tundra is new for 2014; in the past it's had strong powertrains, but its interior has come on a little strong (and a little too gimmicky).

The GMC Sierra remains very closely related to the Silverado, and it gets many of the same changes this Chevy earns for 2013.

A fresh new look and an upgraded interior with new technology make the 2014 Toyota Tundra an intriguing truck, but lackluster powertrains keep it from shining.

The 2014 Ram 1500 brings a new turbodiesel to its class-best fuel economy ratings; it's also tops in cabin finish and infotainment, but lags in towing.
