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:

benefits from GM's extensive reworking of both full-size pickups and full-size SUVs
Kelley Blue Book

an excellent combination of good looks
Car and Driver

it looks manlier...and more assertive

an attractive dash design

Editors at TheCarConnection.com are generally pleased with the looks of the 2009 GMC Sierra 1500—especially inside—though there are a few questionable elements.

Car and Driver comments that the Sierra is an "outstanding line of full-size pickups that offer an excellent combination of good looks." Kelley Blue Book reports that "the 2009 GMC Sierra 1500 does share the 'strong, silent-type' handsomeness of the Silverado...an upscale look is highlighted by narrow gaps between body panels." A Cars.com reviewer admires the Sierra’s "chiseled front end mainly because it looks manlier—always a good thing where trucks are concerned—and more assertive" (sorry, ladies…or men).

The interior gets mixed comments. Kelley Blue Book says the "2009 GMC Sierra 1500 benefits from GM's extensive reworking of both full-size pickups and full-size SUVs." Edmunds appreciates this GMC 2009 model's interior, noting its "pleasing fit and finish inside [and] an attractive dash design." Cars.com, however, is less of a fan. The reviewer derides "the vast planks of plastic 'wood' that attempt to warm up the interior" of the GMC 2009 Sierra 1500, efforts that it says "are undermined by the occasional unsightly wavy spots that give away their clear fakeness."


The 2009 GMC Sierra 1500 offers some good styling overall, but a few details aren’t quite as appealing.
