If you’re shopping for a family-friendly Cadillac vehicle, you’ve likely come across both crossovers and SUVs. While some drivers use these terms interchangeably, there is actually a difference between SUVs and crossovers. Here at Zeigler Cadillac of Lincolnwood, we carry both Cadillac crossovers and Cadillac midsize SUVs, and our dealers are happy to explain the difference between these segments, as well as recommend some vehicles.

Cadillac Crossovers

For many car experts, the differences between crossovers and SUVs is in the platform upon which the vehicle rides. A crossover is based on a car’s platform, which means that it has a unibody architecture and the body and frame are in one piece. A more informal distinction is that crossovers tend to be smaller in size than SUVs. Here at our dealership, one of the most popular Cadillac crossovers is the 2020 Cadillac XT4. This stylish crossover captures the Cadillac essence in a small athletic package. Under the hood, you’ll find a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, 9-speed automatic transmission, and twin-clutch all-wheel-drive.

Cadillac SUVs

Compared to crossovers, which share a platform with a car, SUVs share a platform with trucks. They use a body on frame design, which means that the body was built separately from the frame and placed together later. SUVs are typically more spacious than crossovers and often have off-road functionality. One popular Cadillac SUV is the 2020 Cadillac XT6. This vehicle features three rows of comfortable seating, premium materials throughout, and the Cadillac User Experience, which gives you access to phone, radio, and a library of apps.

Whether you’re interested in a Cadillac crossover or a Cadillac midsize SUV, you can shop from the safety of your home at Zeigler Cadillac Of Lincolnwood.
