2016 Cadillac SRX vs. 2017 GMC Acadia Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Cadillac SRX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Cadillac SRX and the GMC Acadia.

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). The Cadillac SRX is somewhat more expensive than the GMC Acadia. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built.

Due to its much higher torque, the Cadillac SRX does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Acadia.
