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.

Most families are better served by a minivan.

The 2008 Ford Econoline serves a very specific need--and if you don't need something this large, Ford plans to import a new Transit Connect van from Europe.

It will offer a large cargo hold, a manual transmission, and a four-cylinder engine, making it a perfect city cargo van with fuel economy much better than that of the Econoline.

The GMC Savana and Chevrolet Express offer much of the ordering flexibility of the Ford vans, and some versions are rated with fuel economy as high as 15/20 mpg.

The 2008 Ford Econoline is built for a purpose: carrying heavy stuff and lots of people. Most readers will be better served with a minivan or a big crossover like the coming 2009 Ford Flex.
