Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Charger than the Cadillac CT5, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Charger, the Cadillac CT5 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Cadillac CT5 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Charger, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 CT5 is somewhat more expensive than the Dodge Charger. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Cadillac CT5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Charger.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT5 is a little narrower than the Dodge Charger, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Cadillac CT5 is slightly shorter than the Dodge Charger, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Cadillac CT5 has much less torque than the Dodge Charger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Cadillac CT5 has a larger turning radius than the Dodge Charger, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CT5 is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Charger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CT5 and the Dodge Charger. The Cadillac CT5 has significantly less cargo room than the Dodge Charger, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac CT5 than that of the Dodge Charger.
