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.

Few vehicles have the off-road reputation of the 2008 Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

The Land Rover Range Rover is one; also like the G-Class, it has a breathtaking price tag to go with its legendary capability.

The Toyota Land Cruiser is substantially less expensive but no less talented, though it is finished more inexpensively.
