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.

Even though the 2008 Lexus LX 570 is heavily based on the Toyota Land Cruiser--which costs $10,000 less--LX 570 buyers are far less likely to actually take their vehicles off-road.

But it's there when you need it--more so than for the Mercedes GL-Class and Cadillac Escalade.

Rather, LX 570 buyers are looking for a flashy appearance and street cred; as far as that goes, the Range Rover and Escalade have it beat.

Inside, however, the LX 570 runs with the best, bearing plenty of attractive, plush materials and standout features.

The QX56, which is soon to be discontinued, is a little more trucklike and doesn't have the refinement of the others.

For towing, the LX remains one of the top choices, with its tremendously torquey engine, good highway stability, and tow rating of up to 8,500 pounds.

For those who can't stomach the LX 570's gas-guzzling ways, there's also the diesel Mercedes-Benz GL320 CDI, which gets an impressive (for the class) 18 mpg city, 24 mpg highway.

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

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

The 2008 Infiniti QX56 misses the mark for a lot of practical reasons, but it can tow a Chris Craft in high style.

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.

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a superior sport-ute with lots of room and power.

TCC Rating
The 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser builds on a world-class reputation for hardy off-road performance and greatly improves its on-road performance, but don’t expect a plush ride or posh interior.
