Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XT6 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lincoln Nautilus, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Cadillac XT6 and the Lincoln Nautilus.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XT6 as you will with the Lincoln Nautilus, 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). Whether you pick the Cadillac XT6 or the Lincoln Nautilus, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT6 is much slimmer than the Lincoln Nautilus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac XT6, which is slightly longer than the Lincoln Nautilus.

Handling
The Cadillac XT6 has the same turning radius as the Lincoln Nautilus, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Cadillac XT6 is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Nautilus for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac XT6 has a little more horsepower than the Lincoln Nautilus.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Cadillac XT6 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln Nautilus.

Utility
The Cadillac XT6 offers greater seating capacity than the Lincoln Nautilus, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Cadillac XT6 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Lincoln Nautilus.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac XT6 than that of the Lincoln Nautilus.
