Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XT6 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Dodge Durango, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Cadillac XT6 and the Dodge Durango.

Convenience
With the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Cadillac XT6, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). The Cadillac XT6 is somewhat more expensive than the Dodge Durango. 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 XT6 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Durango.

Dimensions
The Cadillac XT6 is a little wider than the Dodge Durango, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac XT6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Dodge Durango.

Handling
The Cadillac XT6 has a smaller turning radius than the Dodge Durango, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT6 for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac XT6 has a little more horsepower than the Dodge Durango.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Cadillac XT6 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Dodge Durango.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac XT6 and the Dodge Durango. The Cadillac XT6 has less cargo space than the Dodge Durango, 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 XT6 than that of the Dodge Durango.
