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.

If you're looking for four doors and a bed, a few vehicles come to mind as logical alternatives to a 2008 Honda Ridgeline.

The Ford Explorer Sport Trac's bed is shorter, but a flip-out bed extender gives it almost the same bed capacity--plus, there's a V-8 option.

The Dodge Dakota and Nissan Frontier are both mid-size trucks with four-door cab options.

The Dakota also comes with a V-8 engine option.

For those of us who don't live on a ranch, the 2008 Nissan Frontier is large enough to haul real people and cargo, but sized for the urban-congestion reality.
