Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XT6 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
With the Jeep Grand Cherokee, 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee. 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
The Cadillac XT6 is a little wider than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac XT6, which is slightly longer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

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

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

Utility
The Cadillac XT6 offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Cadillac XT6 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

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