Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XT4 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Wrangler, with comparable head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XT4 as you will with the Jeep Wrangler, 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 XT4 or the Jeep Wrangler, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 XT4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT4 is much wider than the Jeep Wrangler, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Cadillac XT4 is slightly shorter than the Jeep Wrangler, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Cadillac XT4 has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Cadillac XT4 will do just as well as the Jeep Wrangler, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Cadillac XT4 has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Cadillac XT4 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac XT4 and the Jeep Wrangler. The Cadillac XT4 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Jeep Wrangler.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac XT4 than that of the Jeep Wrangler.
