Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XT4 than in the Nissan Pathfinder. The Nissan Pathfinder will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XT4 as you will with the Nissan Pathfinder, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac XT4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Pathfinder. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Cadillac XT4 and the Nissan Pathfinder have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac XT4 is a little narrower than the Nissan Pathfinder, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Cadillac XT4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Pathfinder.

Handling
The Cadillac XT4 has the same turning radius as the Nissan Pathfinder, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Cadillac XT4 will do just as well as the Nissan Pathfinder, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Cadillac XT4 has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Cadillac XT4 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Cadillac XT4 seats a lot fewer people than the Nissan Pathfinder. The Cadillac XT4 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac XT4 than that of the Nissan Pathfinder.
