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.

For now, shoppers in this class have a lot to celebrate, with some really good vehicles that dealers are, in most cases, heavily discounting to get off the lots.

The Chevrolet Tahoe was recently redesigned and reigns supreme, with its long-wheelbase version, the Suburban, in this segment, and its V-8 engines are both responsive and fuel-efficient.

The Ford Expedition was redesigned a few years back with a more luxurious interior; it comes in standard or long-wheelbase editions, and stands out for having a good ride and capable handling even though its power ratings lag.

The Nissan Armada comes with one wheelbase and one engine, but its big V-8 makes the brassiest sound at speed, and its styling is still like no other.

Competitors to the 2009 Nissan Armada offer roomier interiors and better options, but the Armada should be commended for its handsome looks and powerful V-8 engine.

The 2008 Ford Expedition is a big, capable SUV with a truly useful and convenient third row.
