Power and Performance
Standard engine power for the Cadillac XT5 entails a 310-horsepower 3.6-Liter V6 engine which receives 19 MPG city and 26 MPG on the highway. At a standard trim for the BMW X5, drivers will experience less push power with the 300-horsepower 3.0-Liter I6 engine which receives only 18 MPG city and 25 MPG on the highway. For the high price of the BMW X5, drivers receive less power and fuel efficiency, whereas when you choose Cadillac, you save significantly.
Prospecting buyers who are seeking a little extra comfort space for their passengers, the Cadillac offers more front legroom with 41.2-inches compared to the BMW X5’s front legroom of 40.4-inches. Your backseat riders may feel cramped in the BMW X5 because the second legroom is only 36.6 inches. If you’re expecting taller riders or want more room for your kids in the back seat, the Cadillac XT5 offers a total of 39.5-inches of rear legroom!
Other handy features found within the Cadillac XT5 are the standard four USB ports compared to the two USB ports for the BMW X5, and drivers can look forward to rear park assist, electronic parking brake, and LED daytime running lamps which are not standard features for the BMW model.
