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.

There's been some turnover in the full-size, luxury-SUV category since the Infiniti QX56 was new in the 2011 model year.

The Lexus LX 570 has returned to the market, essentially unchanged and still as gargantuan as ever--and not so distinguished from the Toyota Land Cruiser except in wood trim and color combinations.

The Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator are nearing the end of their life cycles; both are the kings of bling, and tip their hats to huge towing capacity, with the Escalade getting the nod for its plethora of body styles and available Hybrid model.

The Benz GL is brand-new this year, improved in almost every way, from infotainment features to its new power-folding second-row seat; its diesel edition is our favorite among the full-size luxo-utes.

Finally, the Range Rover is heading toward retirement: a brand-new vehicle, spun from the Jaguar XJ architecture, is due for a world debut in the fall of 2012, with a curb weight up to 500 pounds less than today's vehicle.

A luxurious SUV with limited appeal, the Lexus LX 570 isn't quite at home on the range, or on the interstate.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Lincoln Navigator feels uniquely American in a way that's unmatched by most other big SUVs; but it's behind the times in many respects.

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL Class is a pricey way to go, but it's a luxury family wagon with great fuel economy and road manners, and some thoughtful new safety and luxury features to boot.
