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.

For 2008, there are no other full-size hybrid SUVs available on the planet.

Similarly sized nonhybrid competitors available in the U.S.

include SUVs such as the Ford Expedition, Toyota Sequoia, Nissan Armada, and Mercedes GL.

But if buying a hybrid is the driving force behind your selection decision, Toyota/Lexus does offer smaller, mid-size SUVs: the Highlander and RX 400h hybrid models.

These are both very nice SUVs, but neither offers the room, towing, or genuine four-wheel-drive capabilities of the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid.
