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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

The Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango Hybrid use the same Hybrid technology as the GMC Yukon, but their platform is much older than the 2009 GMC Yukon's.

If you are comparing hybrids, check out the offerings from Toyota/Lexus: the Highlander and RX400h hybrid models.

These are both comfortable and efficient crossovers, but if you need room, towing, and four-wheel-drive capabilities, go with the 2009 Yukon Hybrid.

If you don’t care how you get better mileage, consider the Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel.

It features a Mercedes-Benz-sourced V-6 turbodiesel that gets 17/22 mpg city/highway, with real-world highway fuel economy that's even better.

But it only seats five, so if you need to carry a brood, the GMC Yukon Hybrid is a better choice.

There are few compelling reasons to choose the 2008 Chrysler Aspen over slightly larger, roomier competitors like a well-equipped Ford Expedition or GMC Yukon.

If you plan to tow, a 2008 Dodge Durango with a V-8 will work nearly as well as a Tahoe or Expedition, at a lower price.

With the carbon footprint of a small car and all the comforts and technologies of a luxury SUV, the 2008 Lexus RX 400h is a green family’s dream.

The 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers the same room and amenities that the nonhybrid Highlander does, only with better fuel economy and the badge of honor that comes with driving something that's trying to be green.
