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.

None of the vehicles in this group is quite as commanding as the Range Rover, but the military-spec Mercedes-Benz G-Class is just as upright and can be nearly as plush.

The Lexus LX 570 is essentially a trimmed-out Toyota Land Cruiser, and off-road performance is the equal, if not superior, to the Range Rover.

The Cadillac Escalade is more of an on-road vehicle, but it's blinged out to the max.

BMW's X5 has a third-row seat and a V-8 version.

The 2008 Land Rover Range Rover remains the ultimate luxury sport-utility vehicle, a well-heeled performer for those well-heeled enough to own one.

Considering the weight of the Escalade’s image and its segment-leading performance, the 2009 Cadillac Escalade is hard to beat.

The 2008 BMW X5 is better than ever, but could use more dramatic styling and an iDrive transplant.

TCC Rating
The 2008 Lexus LX 570 comes loaded with worthwhile technology, but it's not as distinctive as a Range Rover or an Escalade.

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz G-Class climbs rocks the old-fashioned way, with the looks to match.
