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 demimonde of large luxury SUVs has been shaken by changes in taste.

But you’ll still look discerning in the expensive, five-seat-only Land Rover Range Rover.

It’s duly refined, and totally capable, and it might be a bit more reliable these days, though only Consumer Reports and the Queen Mother know for sure.

We love the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, particularly with the class-exclusive diesel powertrain, the Alabama-built ute is the closest competitor to its former neighbor.

If you’re chauffeuring Mary J.

Blige on tour or just need the bling to match your custom-made suit, you’ll want the Cadillac Escalade.

We do too, especially in ultra-pricey Platinum trim.

Lastly, you could choose either big Lexus ute; the GX 470 is just too tall and too narrow for our palate, while the LX 570 swings too wide for a much more financially able audience.

The trip back home’s done the Infiniti QX56 a world of good; savor the V-8 and the cabin essence, and buy it in black to subdue that wide, tall front end.

The 2010 Cadillac Escalade is big, brawny, and very thirsty; yet with segment-leading performance and unrivaled style, the Escalade is hard to beat.

The 2010 Land Rover Range Rover is a bit pricey, but it delivers a lot of value, too.

The 2010 Lexus LX 570 won't turn heads like a Range Rover or an Escalade, but it is a high-tech and worthy choice.

Lexus has succeeded in making the 2010 GX 470 safer, more responsive, and more comfortable, while maintaining its off-road chops. But those who want cargo convenience and versatility will be better off with a crossover.

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class' nimble ride and elegant cabin charm the mud right off a Range Rover.
