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.

Meanwhile Dodge's own Grand Caravan, for those willing to own up to reality, probably makes a lot of sense (more sense) for busy families, unless you're truly carrying a large boat on the weekends.

The Toyota Sequioa carries more people and tows more weight, but it's less nimble and less nice than the Dodge, period.

The Chevy Traverse is suited to carrying people and pulling a light trailer--and the same goes for the brand-new Nissan Pathfinder, as it gives up on its truck roots entirely and goes carlike with its drivetrain and its flip-and-fold, seven-passenger seating.

Finally, there's a real minivan,
