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.

There are many three-row crossover models with seating space close to that of the Flex, but none of them have its crowd-pleasing interior, not its quirky head-turning exterior.

The Lincoln MKT is closely related to the Flex but lacks the Ford's swagger from the outside, sporting a more fluid and some say, more bizarre look.

The Honda Pilot is a strong entry, but all the tacky, grainy plastic on the dash of the latest version make it less desirable.

The Buick Enclave has its own curvaceous charm, but its V-6 is throatier and even with improvements for 2013 its cabin doesn't look quite as luxurious as that of the Ford.

The Range Rover Sport is a model that has something close to the Flex's exterior style, yet it costs more and isn't nearly as practical.

Finally, the Chrysler Town & Country is a true minivan that trumps the Flex's practicality with sliding side doors and stow-away seating--not to mention a lower price.

The provocative Lincoln MKT has undeniable charm--a fantastic cabin, great infotainment features, and paddle-shifted EcoBoost power--but you have to buy into the look.
