Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Enclave offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Cadillac XT6, with comparable head- and legroom. The Buick Enclave offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT6, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Enclave as you will with the Cadillac XT6, 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 Buick Enclave 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 Buick Enclave and the Cadillac XT6 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick Enclave is a little wider than the Cadillac XT6, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick Enclave, which is slightly longer than the Cadillac XT6.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Buick Enclave is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT6 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Buick Enclave and the Cadillac XT6.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Buick Enclave and the Cadillac XT6 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Enclave and the Cadillac XT6. The Buick Enclave has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Cadillac XT6.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Enclave is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Cadillac XT6.
