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.

The Cadillac Escalade resides near the top of the class of full-size luxury SUVs, with a good ride, surprisingly nimble handling for its size and weight, and a very responsive powertrain, as well as standout styling and street cred.

The Lincoln Navigator has an especially roomy, well-designed interior, with distinctive materials; it also has solid ride quality and reasonably good handling, but it lags the others with an engine that isn't as powerful.

The LX 570 has the sturdy frame and world-class hardware of the Land Cruiser, but it's especially expensive.

The Aspen is a half-size smaller, though it isn't nearly as maneuverable.

However, the Aspen is a relative bargain, with a price that's many thousands less than the rest of these vehicles.

Fuel economy is a low point for the 2008 Infiniti QX56, with ratings of 12 mpg city and 17 mpg highway for the AWD version--ranking it near the bottom of its class.

The 2008 Infiniti QX56 misses the mark for a lot of practical reasons, but it can tow a Chris Craft in high style.

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

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.

The 2008 Lexus LX 570 comes loaded with worthwhile technology, but it's not as distinctive as a Range Rover or an Escalade.

The 2008 Lincoln Navigator has more going for it than bling.
