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.

The Jeep Commander has the rugged looks of a HUMMER wannabe and includes a third-row seat and HEMI power; yet with a roomier cabin and mileage well into the teens, the Commander is a much more practical choice.

Lincoln's Navigator also has an upscale look and plenty of luxury options, plus a power-operated third-row seat with real, usable room, but it’s not a good choice for off-roading because of its delicate wheels and running boards.

The Cadillac Escalade is a similar case, with more of an urbane look; it shares the H2's powertrains but is more space-efficient.

Buyers with money to spare might also take a look at the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, or Geländewagen, as it's nicknamed.

The boxy G-Class has a sturdy, proven design and awe-inspiring off-road capability, yet it piles on the luxury features inside.

Nothing evokes the response of a HUMMER H2, but these other big SUVs all make more sense for most buyers.

If you’re a serious off-roader, the 2009 HUMMER H2 is the perfect vehicle. If you’re not, the HUMMER is nothing more than an expensive, gas-guzzling fashion statement—or an image liability.

Considering the weight of the Escalade’s image and its segment-leading performance, the 2009 Cadillac Escalade is hard to beat.

The 2008 Jeep Commander is good Jeep (a trail-capable vehicle), but it's not a great people mover.

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz G-Class climbs rocks the old-fashioned way, with the looks to match.
