Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XT6 than in the Lexus GX 460. The Cadillac XT6 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus GX 460, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Cadillac XT6, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GX 460.

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). Whether you pick the Cadillac XT6 or the Lexus GX 460, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Cadillac XT6 is much higher than that for the Lexus GX 460.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT6 is much wider than the Lexus GX 460, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Lexus GX 460.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lexus GX 460 is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT6 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Cadillac XT6 and the Lexus GX 460.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Cadillac XT6 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus GX 460.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac XT6 and the Lexus GX 460. The Cadillac XT6 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Lexus GX 460.

Warranty
The Cadillac XT6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GX 460.
