The 2020 Cadillac XT4 is a small-ish premium-crossover SUV. We say “ish” because it’s not as big as the compact Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, for example, but slightly larger than the subcompact Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.

As well as size, the 2020 XT4 sits between price brackets as well. And that’s part of Cadillac’s overall appeal. The company’s creations come with plenty of equipment, excellent suspensions and what might be considered attractive looks.

2020 Ford F-150

There’s a reason the 2020 Ford F-150 remains the nation’s best-selling full-size pickup and it can be summed up in three words: value, capability and style. The F-150 is full of innovative features pickup-truck owners need, but it also comes with luxury and high-tech features they don’t expect.

The F-150 also offers a nearly inexhaustible choice of trims, configurations and options, allowing it to be everything from a daily workhorse to limousine-like transport. A number of engine choices further distances the F-150 from other trucks and Ford holds the title for best-in-class payload.

2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

No longer a mere gateway to Mercedes-Benz ownership, the C-Class has matured into a prestigious, elegant and advanced car in its own right. Today, it serves as a step up from the A-Class and CLA-Class models, and is offered in sedan, coupe and convertible body styles.
