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.

Currently there are two main rivals: The Nissan Xterra has a rugged look, and serious off-road versions to tough enough for boulder-scrambling, but ultimately it's not as entirely dedicated to the task as the Wrangler.

There's also the Toyota FJ Cruiser; it's the Wrangler's closest rival for pure style; it gets its retro design from the 1960s FJ, yet has modern components from the Toyota 4Runner that are a bit more road-friendly than those of the Wrangler.

The 4Runner itself is more of a conventional SUV, but it hasn't given up its tough truck side in recent years and when properly equipped it could make a softer alternative to the Wrangler Unlimited.

The Hummer H3, which was discontinued a couple of years ago, might have the top rival to the Wrangler visually, but it never attracted the legions of serious off-roaders in the way the Wrangler does.

The 2013 Jeep Wrangler is just as ready for adventuring as it looks--and surprisingly tolerable for the commute.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Nissan Xterra has exactly what the most dedicated weekend warriors want--including the goods to get active gear out to hard-to-reach places--but without a lot of frills.

The 2013 Toyota 4Runner is just as brawny as it looks off-road, yet much better than you'd probably suspect on the highway.

TCC Rating
The Toyota FJ Cruiser is the real deal, pairing authentic trail toughness with modern conveniences; but families and commuters attracted mainly to its brawny, very stylish look should think twice.
