Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe than in the Cadillac XT5, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT5.

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 XT5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe. 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 Wrangler Unlimited 4xe.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Cadillac XT5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe.

Handling
