You’ve decided that you want a Cadillac SUV — but should you purchase the 2019 Cadillac XT4 or the 2019 Cadillac XT5? While both of these models are an appealing option, it can be difficult to tell the difference between the two. The SUV that will work best for you really depends on your needs. Here, we at Plaza Cadillac will compare and contrast the Cadillac XT4 and Cadillac XT5 so you can see which will suit you best.
If you tend to haul more passengers than cargo around town, then the 2019 XT4 will appeal to you more than the XT5. Though the XT5 is longer than the XT4 with 189.4 inches of length, it has less passenger space with 38.4 inches of headroom in the front seats and 36.0 inches in the back. Comparatively, the XT4 has 39.4 inches of headroom in the front and 38.3 inches in the back.
Cargo wise, though, the XT5 offers more than the XT4. It has 30 cubic feet behind the second-row seats, which will more than double to 63 cubic feet when you collapse the second-row seats. The XT4 has 22.5 cubic feet behind its second row and 48.9 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity.
Cadillac is not one to skimp when it comes to power, and both of these models reflect that. The XT4 has a 2.0-liter engine that puts out 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, while the front-wheel-drive XT5 produces 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. So, if you want more power, then it’s likely you will want to opt for the XT5.
If you’re more interested in saving money at the gas pump, then the XT4 is a better option for you. While both models get impressive fuel-efficiency ratings, the XT4 has an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway. By contrast, the XT5 gets 26 mpg on the highway.*
