Comparison Review

The Cadillac XT5 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lexus GX 460. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Cadillac XT5 and the Lexus GX 460.

Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Cadillac XT5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GX 460.

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 Lexus GX 460. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Cadillac XT5 and the Lexus GX 460 have similar Destination Charges.

The Cadillac XT5 is about the same width as the Lexus GX 460. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac XT5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GX 460.

The Cadillac XT5 has much lower torque than the Lexus GX 460, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Cadillac XT5 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GX 460, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

In terms of towing capacity, the Lexus GX 460 is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT5 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Cadillac XT5 and the Lexus GX 460.

The Cadillac XT5 has less seating than the Lexus GX 460, making the Lexus GX 460 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Cadillac XT5 as you will in the Lexus GX 460.

The Cadillac XT5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GX 460.
