TCC Rating
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.

If you like the 2009 Mercedes-Benz G-Class and want a luxurious, somewhat exclusive vehicle, you should check out the Land Rover Range Rover and Toyota Land Cruiser.

The Toyota Land Cruiser is substantially less expensive than the G-Class but no less talented, though it is finished more inexpensively.

Few vehicles have the off-road reputation of the 2009 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.

Military-vehicle buffs might also put the Jeep Wrangler and Hummer H2 on the same page, but both are thoroughly modern vehicles and not truly descended from their forebears.

The 2009 Mercedes-Benz G-Class doesn’t deliver the typical luxury SUV driving experience, but it’s a standout in its own right.

If you’re a serious off-roader, the 2009 HUMMER H2 is the perfect vehicle. If you’re not, the HUMMER is nothing more than an expensive, gas-guzzling fashion statement—or an image liability.

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is a one-of-a-kind vehicle: an extreme off-road convertible with the on-road handling and ride of--well, a true off-roader.

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.

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.
