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.

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 Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier are very evenly matched in features, but the Frontier stands taller in safety ratings and equipment, as well as offering a better ride and similar towing/hauling capacity.

Honda's Ridgeline is soon to be discontinued, but does offer better ride and handling--at a higher cost and with less flexible utility.

Chevrolet's recently announced 2015 Canyon promises to be the newest and best offering in the less-than-fullsize-pickup segment, however, with a range of gasoline and diesel engines, modern electronics, and substantial hauling and towing capabilities.

The 2015 Chevy Colorado asks the question: is not-full-size big enough? We'll give you an answer soon.

TCC Rating
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline is a niche alternative for those who don't need a pickup bed all the time, but it doesn't satisfy drivers that need a real full-size truck.

TCC Rating
The Toyota Tacoma can make for a reasonable alternative if you don't want to deal with a full-size truck, but its ride, fuel economy and price may have you looking elsewhere.
