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.

Competition is especially hot among full-size pickups, at a time when sales also happen to be way down.

The Nissan Titan soldiers on as a truck aimed at personal use, with some still-innovative cargo solutions and good performance.

The Chevy Silverado and its nearly identical sibling, the GMC Sierra, have made waves for their very attractive, functional interiors and new standards of ride and handling, and they have an especially efficient line of V-8 engines.

Both the best-selling Ford F-150 and Dodge Ram have been redesigned for 2009; the F-150 gets a new interior and improved refinement, while the Ram has some segment-leading tech and entertainment features inside, along with vastly improved ride and handling.

The Ford F-150 is a solid truck that is due for its 2009 model makeover, but it’s good enough that it may be all the truck you need or want.
