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 Basics:

The Ghost may be the most affordable way to get behind the wheel of Rolls-Royce, but it's anything but common. Designed to be a more dynamic take on the brand's traditional luxury, the Ghost remains one of the most recent additions to the hyperluxury class.

For 2014, the Ghost carries over with the same style and power, but with more than just a few new features. Most of these changes are optional–that is to say that they're all aspects of the endless list of Rolls-Royce personalizations. New 20" wheels, new exterior paints and interior wood trims are all available. Most notably, though, is the upgraded navigation system, which now has easier to use menus and 3D city imaging, as well as controls that allow the driver to pinch, pull and write on a touchpad mounted on the console.

Whether driving the Ghost or enjoying it from the back seat, rich leathers, fine woods, and ample high-tech information and entertainment systems create an atmosphere of success, perfect for brokering a big business deal or treating the significant other to a Prada spree. 

The customization and personalization services offered by Rolls-Royce, as noted, extend to the Ghost. Nearly any desire can be accommodated, from custom colors schemes and materials to one-off equipment or features. Just be sure to bring the digits to your Swiss petty funds account.

As the driver's car in the Rolls-Royce lineup, the Ghost requires no chauffeur--though you can still get away with one. Despite its size and bulk, the Ghost is fun to drive, with its twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V-12 engine generating 563 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque. That's more power than the larger, more expensive Phantom.

Accordingly, the Ghost can accelerate to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds and carry on to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. The Ghost's power and performance (and its size) come at a cost though: gas mileage is just 13 mpg city and 20 mpg highway, despite an eight-speed ZF automatic shifting gears.

Under the skin, completely out of sight, the Ghost shares some of its underpinnings with the BMW 7-Series. This is, in our estimation, a good thing, contributing a tested, proven engineering base that enables the Ghost to be as good a driver's car as it is. The Ghost is also eminently comfortable, as you'd expect of a Rolls-Royce, riding on an air-damper and multi-link aluminum suspension, with active anti-roll and chassis stabilization for better handling and safety.

Little has changed since our first drive of the 2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost--read more over at our luxury and performance site, Motor Authority.
