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 Cadillac Escalade is a larger alternative to the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

The Escalade offers more interior room than the Sport, and the 6.2-liter V-8 in the Cadillac helps the Escalade keep up with the Land Rover, even when equipped with the supercharged engine.

But not many buyers need that ability to traverse mud bogs on the way to the country club, and the 2009 Infiniti FX50 and BMW's X6 pose a dilemma for the Range Rover Sport because these all-wheel-drive competitors focus entirely on road performance, which is what so many buyers are seeking.

The choice of SUVs in this price range also includes the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5.

Both are athletic and aggressive but suffer from thick styling.
