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.

Expert Quotes:

an excellent combination of good looks
Car and Driver

it looks manlier...and more assertive

an attractive dash design

Most reviewers read by TheCarConnection.com's team are impressed by the 2008 GMC Sierra 1500's looks.

Cars.com is a fan of the GMC 2008 Sierra 1500's "chiseled front end mainly because it looks manlier--always a good thing where trucks are concerned--and more assertive" (sorry, ladies). Kelley Blue Book expands on the "masculinity" theme, making it not only manly but rich as well: "the 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 does share the 'strong, silent-type' handsomeness of the Silverado...an upscale look is highlighted by narrow gaps between body panels." Car and Driver comments that the Sierra is an "outstanding line of full-size pickups that offer an excellent combination of good looks."

Edmunds expresses appreciation for this GMC 2008 model's interior, noting its "pleasing fit and finish inside [and] an attractive dash design." Kelley Blue Book says the "2008 GMC Sierra 1500 benefits from GM's extensive reworking of both full-size pickups and full-size SUVs." Cars.com, however, notes "the vast planks of plastic 'wood' that attempt to warm up the interior" of the GMC 2008 Sierra 1500, efforts that it says "are undermined by the occasional unsightly wavy spots that give away their clear fakeness."


Maybe the 2008 GMC Sierra 1500's "manliness" and "chiseled looks" are the automotive equivalent of a handsome hunk, but that fake plastic wood makes a statement as well.
