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.

The muscle-car revival is still in full force, with the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro replaying an old rivalry.

Only this time, all three cars are a lot more practical and day-to-day livable.

The 2010 Dodge Challenger has the most usable backseat of the three, but none of them are particularly spacious.

Relative to the Mustang and Camaro, the Challenger has a bit more space for front-seat occupants and would likely be more comfortable for a road trip.

The V-6 SE model matches reasonably well against the Mustang V-6, but the Camaro’s V-6, now with more than 300 horsepower, easily beats them and is a step above in refinement.

At the top of the range, the Camaro SS and Mustang GT match up nicely with the Challenger SRT8, but the powerful Shelby GT500 Mustang holds a huge horsepower advantage over the SRT8.

One other new model to consider is the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, an all-new rear-wheel-drive coupe that has a completely different flavor but takes on V-6 models of the Mustang and Camaro.

The 2010 Dodge Challenger is the most retro of 'em all, but don’t let that make you think it’s disappointing in features, comfort, or refinement.
