Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Cadillac XT4, 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 XT4 and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Convenience

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 Cadillac XT4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. 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 Unlimited.

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

Performance

Utility
