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 vs.

Chevy wars continue to rage in the heavy-duty segment of the pickup truck market.

An all-new Ford Super Duty was introduced for the 2008 model year, and it is a heck of a truck, complete with a revised Power Stroke diesel.

That engine isn't a true "clean" diesel yet, but will be soon.

There's no mistaking the Super Duty's style, which is certainly more distinctive than the Silverado HD's.

Features like the optional in-tailgate stepladder are also innovative and go unanswered by Chevy.
