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 Lexus LX 570 is a costly, hefty way to transport seven passengers to very remote corners of the globe.

A number of vehicles will do similar duty, often more easily and less expensively.

A Range Rover only seats five, but it's truly more capable off-road, more authentically luxurious, and more enjoyable to drive on pavement, especially with optional supercharging.

The Cadillac Escalade has more interior space and an available Hybrid model for better gas mileage, at least, though its packaging leaves much to be desired.

The Infiniti QX56 is a relative bargain, and feels more composed on pavement, though it doesn't have the storied off-roading history behind it.

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is one of our top choices, especially with the available turbodiesel drivetrain; it's spacious, composed, and luxurious, and revamped for the 2013 model year.

If you're intent on the LX 570, at least consider the Land Cruiser, which offers the same packaging with arguably better off-road capability and a sticker price that's about $10,000 lower than that of the Lexus.

Still an off-road specialist by design, the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser's grown ever so expensive; did it ever make sense?
