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.

Reputation and brand loyalty are everything in the now-crowded field of full-size trucks-which explains the lack of big-time sales numbers for the oddly styled Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan. This game's all about the domestics, and for now, the Ram 1500 is the best of the lot, with great styling and a lovely interior, but backbreaking towing and hauling capability. The Ford F-150 earns higher ratings for that hard work, but a blunter style that's softened somewhat by the luxurious interior.

its new powertrain lineup is efficient and strong, and electric power steering feels better than its old setup. GM's big problem is the Sierra is almost the duplicate of the Chevrolet Silverado, right down to the Hybrid's technology, though the Sierra is a bit more distinctive.

The 2011 Nissan Titan performs well and has a comfortable interior, but its appeal is more limited than the full-line full-size trucks from the Big Three and Toyota.

The interior may be a letdown in quality, but the 2011 Toyota Tundra is every bit as big and tough as the other full-size trucks.
