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.

The mid-size pickup truck market is not a hotbed of competition these days.

Interestingly, many who would otherwise want a mid-size truck upgrade to full-size because the cost and mileage differentials are often meager.

If you decide to stick with a smaller truck, the 2008 Mitsubishi Raider faces off against smaller entries like the Chevrolet Colorado (and its twin, the GMC Canyon) and the Ford Ranger.

These competitors offer greater choice when it comes to trim and options, but the Raider counters with its greater size and an impressive warranty.

The Tacoma, Frontier, and Ridgeline are in a completely different class than the Raider.

Each offers more choice, more power, and more refinement.

However, they end up costing more too.
