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.

Among the domestic brands, the 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 has been relegated to third place in the sales race for years.

More recent upgrades from Ford and Chevy have kept their light-duty pickups selling at a ratio that is nearly 2:1 over the Dodge, but the Ram wins over lots of buyers with its style, value, and HEMI power.
