You don't mention what type of bike you are looking for, and the "grades" as you put it differ between bike types. If you were talking about racing/road bikes the (in descending order) Dura-Ace, Ultegra, 105, Tiagra, Sora. For mountain bikes it is XTR, DeoreXT, Saint, SLX, and Deore as far as groupsets are concerned, but there are also individual components labelled Altus, Acera and Tourney.
The difficulty is that most bikes will have a mixture of components. Hybrid bikes for instance, although using road sized wheels will probably use mountain bike gears. The same with touring bikes, where very low gears are needed. Additionally in order to meet a given price point, brands will often mix the components so that you might have Deore shift levers but an Acera chainset, and on the lower end bikes even non-Shimano components added.
