The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will come standard with massaging front seats, GM Authority can confirm.
The standard front massaging seats in the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq carry RPO code AF6 for the driver’s side seat and RPO AKE for the passenger-side seat. Both of the massaging front seats will also come with heating functionality as standard.
The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will come standard with an abundance of other technology, as well, including Super Cruise, a 33-inch widescreen display, Cadillac’s next-generation Active Noise Cancellation system, an AKG Studio 19-speaker audio system with headrest speakers and a dual-level charge cord, among more.
Power in the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will come from a single, rear-mounted Ultium Drive permanent magnet electric motor producing 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. A 100-kWh GM Ultium lithium-ion battery pack will provide an estimated 300 miles of range per charge. As we reported previously, the battery-electric crossover will tip the scales at a significant 5,610 pounds – nearly identical to the two-wheel-drive version of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade.
Pricing for the entry-level 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will start at $59,990 in the United States. In addition to the U.S. and Canada, the electric crossover will also be available for purchase in China early next year, as well as in the Middle East in mid-2023. The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will begin rolling off the line at GM’s Spring Hill, Tennessee assembly facility in May of 2022 following a $2 billion investment in the facility to support all-electric vehicle production there.
In addition to these markets, the Cadillac Lyriq will also be built and sold locally in China. Somewhat surprisingly, the Chinese market will actually receive the vehicle ahead of the United States, with a launch expected sometime later this year.
U.S. and Canadian order books for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will open on September 18th.
