Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Cadillac XT6, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Armada 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 Nissan Armada, 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 Nissan Armada. 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 Nissan Armada.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT6 is much slimmer than the Nissan Armada, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Nissan Armada.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Armada is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT6 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac XT6 has a lot less horsepower than the Nissan Armada.

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

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

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