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.

The Land Rover Range Rover has prestige at its back and exceptional off-road prowess, but only two rows of seats.

The Lexus LX 570 is a huge dirt-grinder with punishing weight and fuel economy, but small third-row seats.

Cadillac's Escalade comes with three rows of seats and a hip, blingy style--and a hybrid powertrain is available.

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