Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Cadillac XT5, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Grand Cherokee offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT5, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Jeep Grand Cherokee requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Cadillac XT5, making it more convenient to drive.

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 XT5 or the Jeep Grand Cherokee, 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 XT5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT5 is much slimmer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac XT5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Cadillac XT5 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Cadillac XT5 has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT5 for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac XT5 has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac XT5 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Cadillac XT5 has less cargo space than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac XT5 than that of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
