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.

It's been about five years since the Grand Cherokee was last redesigned, but thanks to its timeless appearance, it still looks more up-to-date than it is.

With respect to handling, safety, fuel economy, and nearly all other on-the-road pursuits, you could do better in a more modern car-based crossover vehicle.

But if you need true off-road ability, you might also look at the Toyota 4Runner and the Nissan Pathfinder.

The 4Runner is all-new for 2010 and has much improved refinement and a small third-row seat.

Neither offers the option of a high-performance model like the Grand Cherokee SRT8, but the Toyota and Nissan both sport a third row of seating that can come in handy.

If you want a Jeep model with third-row seating, you’ll have to spring for the Jeep Commander.

The Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot are car-based crossovers.

Even when ordered with four-wheel drive, these SUVs aren't designed for tough off-roading, even if the Pilot does look somewhat rugged, though both have a very spacious interior with three rows of seating.

If you’re after serious off-roading ability, the Pathfinder is more than capable—otherwise, there are comfier options available.

The 2010 Toyota 4Runner is a brawny “true truck” worth serious consideration if tough off-roading capability for regular trail driving is one of your requirements—and it won’t sacrifice comfort the rest of the time.

The 2010 Toyota Highlander's appeal has grown even more massive with the addition of a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine for base models.
