BMW vs Cadillac: High-Performance Cars           

You'll find both BMW and Cadillac vehicles out on the racetrack, but only BMW injects all their motorsports DNA right into their everyday lineup. The BMW M lineup features nine different models, along with a variety of unique trim levels that add a shot of adrenaline to existing BMW models. The Cadillac V-Series only has four models to choose from.

Let's match the BMW M5 to the Cadillac CT4-V to see how they compare. The M5 comes with a 600-horsepower, 4.4L M TwinPower Turbo V8 that catapults it from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.2 seconds. The 310-horsepower, 2.7L Dual Volute Turbocharged engine of the CT4-V tops off at 310 horsepower and takes a full 4.8 seconds to hit the 60 MPH mark.

Both sports cars come with selectable drive modes, so you can personalize your ride, but you'll only get to go incognito with the BMW M5. Its available Silent Mode manages engine and exhaust noise, so you can show up on the scene before the competition even knows you're there.

BMW X5 vs Cadillac XT6: How Do Their Midsize SUVs Compare?

The performance advantage continues for BMW into its lineup of luxury SUVs. The BMW X5 comes standard with a 3.0L TwinPower Turbo engine that generates 335 horsepower. Compare that to the 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder engine in the Cadillac XT6. It maxes out at just 237 horsepower.

Both SUVs come with a wide array of infotainment features to keep you connected on the move. They share the following technology:

  • Apple CarPlay™
  • Android Auto
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • Navigation

Innovative driver-assistance features are available with both SUVs, but you'll only get the confidence-inspiring, Active Protection System with the X5. When it detects an imminent collision, it prepares the vehicle by closing the windows, tightening the safety belts, and activating post-crash braking.

Who Has the Superior Certified Pre-Owned Program?

If you're in the market for a certified pre-owned vehicle, you're in luck. Both BMW and Cadillac have the comprehensive CPO programs that you would expect from a luxury car manufacturer.

Each brand puts their vehicles through stringent inspections and reconditioning processes. If a component is not performing at it's best, it's replaced. They also make sure the vehicle is up to date on all scheduled maintenance and service repairs.

To give you even more peace of mind behind the wheel, certified pre-owned vehicles from each brand comes with a manufacturer's warranty that provides coverage for one additional year after the expiration of the new vehicle warranty. Best of all, the coverage lasts for an unlimited number of miles, so, go ahead-take that road trip!

BMW vs Cadillac: Meet the Superior Luxury Car Brand!

BMW and Cadillac always put on a good show. They both have great certified pre-owned programs, but if you're looking for a sports car or a versatile SUV, BMW is the luxury brand for your rides through Knoxville, Loudon, and Lenoir City, Tennessee.
