Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XT6 than in the Cadillac XT5, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac XT6 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT5.

Convenience
The Cadillac XT5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Cadillac XT6, making it more convenient to drive.

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 XT5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Cadillac XT6. 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 XT5 and the Cadillac XT6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT5 is much slimmer than the Cadillac XT6, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Cadillac XT5 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac XT6, which may make it easier to park.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Cadillac XT6 is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT5 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac XT5 has a lot less horsepower than the Cadillac XT6.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Cadillac XT5 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Cadillac XT6.

Utility
The Cadillac XT5 has less seating than the Cadillac XT6, making the Cadillac XT6 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Cadillac XT5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Cadillac XT6.

Warranty
The Cadillac XT5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac XT6.
