2019 INFINITI QX50 vs 2019 Cadillac XT4

Serving Novi, MI

This year’s premium SUV’s include the 2019 INFINITI QX50 and the 2019 Cadillac XT4, with the latter being introduced this year. Both all-wheel vehicles offer numerous luxuries and amenities missing in many, more expensive vehicles in the SUV class. Each SUV has an attractive package that appeals to the eye. But what lies under that package demonstrates the error of judging an SUV by its cover. Two vehicles in the same class may have a very different level of handling and performance. Information outline below compare the two vehicles for you to decide which has your driving preference.

Performance

Both the 2019 INFINITI QX50 and the 2019 Cadillac XT4 have turbocharged engines. The INFINITI QX50 has a V6, twin turbo with a 3.0-liter engine compared to the Cadillac XT4, which has a 4-cylinder, turbo 2.0-liter engine. Torque determines how much power reaches the wheels and really helps you out. The INFINITI QX50’s torque is 295@ 1500 rpm where the Cadillac XT4’s torque is only 258@ 1500 rpm.

Horsepower on the Cadillac XT4 is just 237@5000 rpm, where the INFINITI QX50 offers horsepower numbers of 300@ 6400 rpm. The INFINITI QX50’s transmission is continuously variable-speed automatic but the Cadillac XT4’s is an automatic, 9-speed transmission. The Cadillac XT4 has 16 valves compared to 24 valves offered up by the INFINITI QX50. Both vehicles have all-wheel drive as their drivetrains

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is higher for the INFINITI QX50 at 5150 pounds, but the Cadillac XT4’s GVWR is only 4960 pounds. That is the equivalent to the weight of one adult male. The INFINITI QX50 gives you a quiet, comfortable highway drive without all the side noise to distract you.

Safety and Dependability

The 2019 INFINITI QX50 has a wider wheelbase, 112.2 inches, than the Cadillac XT4’s 109.4 inches. A wider wheelbase equates to a more stable, secure ride.

The INFINITI QX50 has a 19-inch wheel, compared to the Cadillac XT4 which only gives you an 18-inch wheel. A wider wheel means more wheel room to grip the pavement in slippery conditions. Plus, the INFINITI QX50 gives you aluminum alloy wheels where the Cadillac XT4 only offers alloy wheels.

A major difference between these two SUV’s is the INFINITI QX50’s ability to run on flat tires. That detail is rarely offered, and the Cadillac XT4 does not have the capacity to do that.

Both SUV’s offer similar safety packages, but the INFINITI QX50 has an engine immobilizer and that is missing in the Cadillac XT4. Additionally, in crash tests, the INFINITI QX50 scores five stars out of five in overall rollover ratings. The Cadillac XT4 does not offer any rollover rating safety data.

Comfort/Interior

Both vehicles offer comfort and convenience. However, the INFINITI QX50 has a standard sunroof, tachometer and CD player where neither is found in the Cadillac XT4. Luxury features you would expect to come standard with the Cadillac XT4 are either optional or not offered at all.

Other safety features provided by the INFINITI QX50 are a front view and side view camera. The Cadillac XT4 does not offer these safety cameras.

You will definitely notice a difference in the interior, where the INFINITI QX50’s 44.5 inches of front legroom is more than 4 inches more than the Cadillac XT4’s 40.4 inches. When you drive the INFINITI QX50, notice the comfortable seating, roomy interior and plenty of cargo space.

The INFINITI QX50 offers you two interior colors choices, either graphite or high contrast wheat. The 2019 Cadillac XT4 has just one color choice which is light platinum alternated with black material.
