2023 Cadillac Lyriq Reservations To Open On September 18th50
General Motors will begin taking reservations for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq electric crossover in September.
In a shareholder letter published this week, GM Chair and CEO Mary Barra revealed that reservations for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will open on September 18th. Customers can already register their interest in the vehicle and sign up to receive updates on it via Cadillac.com.
It’s not yet clear if a down payment will be required to reserve the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, though seeing as GM charged interested parties $100 to reserve a spot in line for the GMC Hummer EV following the electric pickup’s debut late last year, it seems likely.
The Cadillac Lyriq will enter production at the GM Spring Hill Assembly plant in Tennessee in March 2022. The Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition will be the first variant to arrive and will come with a single rear-mounted electric motor along with a 100 kWh lithium-ion battery providing more than 300 miles of range on a full charge. Other standard equipment includes a 19.2 kW onboard charger, Cadillac’s hands-free Super Cruise driving assistant and an AKG audio system, among more.
GM invested $2 billion in its Spring Hill Assembly plant in order to prepare it to produce the Cadillac Lyriq. The investment will enable GM to install new machines, conveyors, controls and tooling at the facility, converting it into a state-of-the-art EV manufacturing site.
“These investments underscore the success of our vehicles today, and our vision of an all-electric future,” Barra said of the plant upgrades when they first announced last fall.
Spring Hill currently produces the Cadillac XT5 and Cadillac XT6 crossovers, which will be both produced alongside the Lyriq.
Prices for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will start at $59,990 in the U.S. including destination and freight charges. Pricing for the well-equipped Debut Edition model has yet to be revealed.

Was interested at 60k, First Edition will go for 80k, count me out for that expensive turd.
I didn’t realize people made that much being a full-time internet troll.
You should be able to find a lightly used tricycle for less than $20 on Craigslist. Ask the seller if they can put it on layaway for 60 months, so your payments are not too salty.
Hehehe! I tried but they wouldn’t do it.
First edition 80k what are you talking about, what nonsense are you talking about, it cost about 60k with only 2 wheel choices and 2 exterior and interior colors for now at least.
First Editions will be loaded with options like the Hummer and will cost 80k to 85k!
Hold on, I thought you were pleasuring yourself on truck interiors now it’s Cadillacs, 20 year old auctioned cars don’t make you a GM customer….
I specialize in crappy truck interiors, but……………. I’m branching out to Cadillacs due to people relying on my comments for their vehicle purchases.
Lol, I believe billionaires reach me for home choices as well..🙂
Incentives on the Bolt EV are $12,000 now for anyone with a $60 Costco membership. That’s $12,000 off of a $32,000 MSRP vehicle or nearly 40 percent. I personally wouldn’t rush out to order one of the first Lyriqs when a little patience would likely net similar savings on the Cadillac EV.
are you sure that isn’t off the previous generation bolt?
According to a well-known car shopping site, those are the current Chevrolet Bolt incentives for 2021 models.
That’s the previous Generation Bolt. 2022 Bolts are available now.
I highly doubt you will find a Lyric for 12k off. It’s a Cadillac…not a Chevy. Try going to any Cadillac store and ask for a discount on an Escalade. They will laugh in your face.
Well I bought one of the first Cadillac ELR’s. It didn’t sell. In four months they were discounted 20,000 dollars. I thought about buying one, the Lyriq but I’m going to wait. Take a fool advice, don’t jump too fast, I did and it cost me $20,000.
The ELR was overpriced and built on the previous generation Volt architecture. It was basically a outdated parts bin car on launch day. The Lyric has zero in common with the ELR.
Both have Cadillac badges.
2.5 years ago ELR’s were half price 37k with MSRP 70-75K. I almost bought one. Very nice interiors.
Great. And that has what to do with a Lyric?
AJ LYRIQ LYRIQ LYRIQ! (-;
The last Cadillac EV, the Caddy ELR, was discounted to the tune of $25,000 and that did not include the Federal tax credits. Nobody really wanted one so Cadillac had to incentivize them hugely to get them off their lots. That’s why folks would be wise to not get excited about acquiring the “First Ever” Cadillac Lyriq as they may vastly overpay for the privilege.
An Escalade is an entirely different product that has a proven record of appeal contrary to gm’s dedicated Hybrids/EVs, none of which have ever been very desired by the public. Even with the Escalade’s appeal though, the hybrid EV version never sold well and was dropped. Same story with the hybrid EV Cadillac CT6 PHEV.
I know gm will really hype the Lyriq as the beginning of their all-electric future but the Volt/ELR and Bolt were supposed to be a big deal too and never really caught on thus spurring the big discounts as they began to stack up on dealers’ lots. As they say: Buyer Beware.
Anyone who disagrees can feel free to go in and plop-down $80,000 for a Lyriq. Nobody is going to stop them. I just personally wouldn’t do it given what we know about past gm EVs.
That was the ELR not the Lyric. The ELR was an overpriced 2 door built on the previous generation Volt architecture. It was pretty much a stillborn product that had very limited appeal. Don’t get the two confused. If you expect the Lyric to be a bargain bin vehicle, you would be wasting your time.
The 1st edition Lyriq are under $62k. They only have two options wheel size and paint color (2).
Sixty grand for technological extravaganza is comically low. Look at the exterior look at that interior, this is better than any german and they are selling pretenders for 100K. GM should stop belittle themselves and ask for real market price. Otherwise once again dealers are gonna seize this opportunity too like they did with C8 and charge 30-50K markups and real buyers come up empty.
You realize that early buyers are the ginny pigs. As far as I am concerned we will be in charge of finding the “little” bugs left in the system. We should get a big break in price and not the other way around. Don’t forget every time we need to take the car in for service we be without transportation or driving a gas loaner. I don’t mind helping to improve the product but I do mind being taken advantage of.
What is “ginny pig” ? Does it taste good when roasted?
@Rick…the price one pays to say I have the latest! Think phones! Me I just want a stable product and it does not have to be the first out the shoot.
That’s funny ! I was in the phone business before I retired.
Too bad gm doesn’t have an alternate gas version of the lyriq
GM is going all electric…so a gas version of the new architecture seems…pointless
The beginning of the end oh General Motors and Cadillac. There will be a flaw in the car, or an issue with the batteries, the car will get lower than anticipated range,marketing will be non existent, and recalls a plenty. The pre production has a nice interior but the production interior will come across cheap and out dated. This car will languish and inventory will hit a high number but than you will contrast with the Escalade that will keep selling in high numbers, all this effort and resources directed at a question or a want that consumers have not asked or demanded electric vehicles. This is the beginning of the end.
A lot of hypotheticals but none based in a reality that you want to exist.
I recall a lot of ICE vehicles offered by GM, Ford, and Chrysler over the decades that had serious fatal flaws and were poorly built and they didn’t seem to sink those respective companies.
Ford is still building Explorers and Firestone is still making tires. Cadillac is still operating after the Cimarron disaster. Chevy is building cars after the Corvair, a car declared “unsafe at any speed”.
Still wondering why you believe an electric car is suddenly the start of the apocalypse.
What? How do you know that, have you experienced the lyriq because I’m sure the lyriq isn’t even in showrooms yet. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
With all due respect, the auto industry doesn’t work that way in the 21st. Century. This is a 2 BILLION dollar upfront investment not a rebadged Opal.
I dont think anyone demanded the gas engine back in the day either. Many dont understand the EVs either that are out so far. Once they get a taste of the eventual main stream ones that have 300miles minimum, charge in 15 minutes for those longer trip outings vs home charging we care less about taking more time, the speed, quietness, other features…they will want it…all in good time and patience yada. san.
Some of the comments on here crack me up, always negative for anything Cadillac do, except Escalades. What many people don’ seem to grasp is that the Lyriq is not a hybrid, you can not compare it to the ELR. As for poor fit and finish, have you spoken with a Teslar owner? we have a guy at work who ordered a Model 3, from day one bits “fell off” or didn’t align correctly. He has had it in the shop 3 or 4 times in the 6 months he has owned it. Let’s just wait and see what the Lyriq is like when it arrives. Then pass judgement
I LOVE Cadillacs ,its what the Division does is what people are hating on.
They are outright appalling .
No class taste , choices full line , dumb names ,silly ads ,and insults to the loyalist , while creating no converts .
Only the Escalade is what Cadillac should be .
Funny ,they don’t cancel it ,or call it the CT – 7 ,or such nonsense.
Wait and see. My guess it will be a problematic vehicle for a few years minimum.
And that’s based on….?
Hey Sam, Just FYI GM is doing a lot more than adding new machines, conveyers, and tooling at Spring Hill, They are building a brand new body shop, and a brand new state of the art paint shop for Lyriq, and the Acura model that will follow.
Maybe, you should do more research before you write your articles to save me the time of correcting you.
Wow ,all that and only two dull colors & rear wheel drive !
They spent one billion on the EXCELLENT CT- 6 .Misnamed it & marketed it all wrong .
People ALL over my high income neighborhood are hunting used ones ,as they hate Cadillacs Cimmeron 4 & 5s .
I am surprised that the Lyriq will be initially offered as only a RWD model. Most vehicles today are FWD except for the pickups, exotic sports cars and some cars. Snow-belt people like the FWD and AWD options for their purchases. My last 5 Cadillac sedans have all been AWD. I commuted 40 miles one way on 2 lane roads and plowed paths with them for the jacked up 4 wheel drive pickups behind me.
Oh, well…let the hate begin. I’ll keep my 2 full-sized Cadillac sedans (2020 CT6 AWD/Super Cruise Premium Luxury and the wife’s 2002 Cadillac DHS) and my Corvette as long as I can. When an EV can get me more than 400 miles in a day on a charge, I’ll look then, but only at a full-sized sedan. No SUV/CUV or cross-over for me.
Nobody is running after that thing . At first I loved it ,then it got old FAST .
I DO NOT WANT AN SUV !
Cadillac ,with GMs resources could build a sedan & convertible ( would be only EV one on the market ) along with this .
Cadillacs prestige has so declined ,by its suicidal actions ,the hugely expensive Celesque ( my ipod won’t even spell that ‘ name ‘, goes no where .
Two color choices ,wow , and rear wheel drive only ?
That sounds so luxurious ! NOT .
Its going to be so embarrassing to see nobody ordering early .
I will stick with my older Cadillacs ,big bold , comfortable , as long as possible ,but as the Division keeps making itself a joke , imports are in my definently in my future .
Just drove a Mercedes Benz S class & it was magnificent.
I ride in a BMW often & its gorgeous .
The new big Lexus has that 63- 64 Cadillac vibe in my opinion ,and yes its deliberate.
Now don’t forget Cadillac to make ‘ funny commercial ‘.
The last one with people jumping out windows ( running from Cadillac dealers ) & the Will Farrow ,pink house Scissorhands ,was so clever ,I forgot to laugh …..A room full of high income ,educated people groaned at that .
Nobody’s going to sing the Lyriq song .
Another flop .
I like all the Lyriq hate here. I plan on ordering one on 18 Sep at 1 PM pst. Hope to get a low VIN and love every minute of owning one. If you are looking for 400 miles per charge, drop $100k for a Lucid.
I too will order a Lyriq in September. I would prefer AWD, and maybe it can be delivered at a later date.
