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 2011 Dodge Ram has a significant edge over its competition, but the other full-size pickup trucks appeal to wider audiences.

The Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra are among the oldest trucks in this class, but still have nicely balanced ride quality, considerable towing capacity, and well-executed interiors.

The Toyota Tundra struggles with an awkward style inside and out, as well as a unique history of being late to the truck game when it counts.

The Nissan Titan brings up the rear of this group; it's older than the GM trucks, and has an uncertain future since a plan to build a new Titan off the Ram's platform has been scuttled.

The Ford F-150 competes most closely with the Ram on capability, but its blocky styling aside, it doesn't quite have the ride or the steering finesse of the Ram.
