Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Yukon than in the Cadillac XT6, due to its greater head- and legroom. The GMC Yukon will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT6.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XT6 as you will with the GMC Yukon, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 XT6 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Yukon. 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 GMC Yukon.

Dimensions
If you go with the Cadillac XT6, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the GMC Yukon.

Drivetrain
The Cadillac XT6 has much lower torque than the GMC Yukon, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Utility
The Cadillac XT6 has less seating than the GMC Yukon, making the GMC Yukon the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Cadillac XT6 has significantly less cargo capacity than the GMC Yukon.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac XT6 than that of the GMC Yukon.
