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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has remained resolute and rugged while other family trucksters have gone the crossover route.

Yep, we're looking at you, Ford Explorer--you're still a sharp-steering, quick-footed way to tote up to seven passengers, but you're no off-roader like the Jeep.

For the crossover crowd, the Grand Cherokee's rivals could include the Chevy Traverse or Equinox, strictly on a people-carrying basis--but we think the Subaru Outback is closest to its temperament and its utility.

The Land Rover LR4 is the Grand Cherokee's equal, but it's also priced far higher, and has much less favorable history behind its reliability record.

The VW Touareg? Some of the same, with less of a storied history of trailblazer.

The 2014 Volkswagen Touareg is an expensive way to purchase a mainstream brand's vehicle, but it's more luxurious than many of its mainstream competitors.
