2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition Reservations Now Open30
Order books for the all-new 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition are now open. The automaker started accepting reservations for its “dynamic, modern, and fully electric SUV” on September 18th at 4 p.m EST.
Pricing for the rear-drive Cadillac Lyriq in the U.S starts at $59,990, including destination freight charge, with production set to begin at the GM Spring Hill Assembly plant in Tennessee early in 2022.
The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq represents the first model year of the upcoming electric crossover utility vehicle (CUV) as well as the brand’s first all-electric vehicle. As such, it introduces a new era in luxury, technology, and electrification. Joining the Lyriq will be four additional electric Cadillac models by 2025, all centered around the GM Ultium battery architecture and Ultium Drive technology.
The new Lyriq is also the first vehicle to flaunt the brand’s next-generation styling, offering signature vertical lighting along with Cadillac’s distinctive “black crystal” grille. The all-electric CUV is slightly larger than the current Cadillac XT5 and features a profile reminiscent of a shooting brake.
Only two wheel types and two exterior colors – Satin Steel Metallic and Stellar Black Metallic – will be offered at launch.
Inside, the Cadillac Lyriq’s interior is clean with a focus on secondary and tertiary design elements, including intricate laser-etched patterns through wood over metal decor.
The Lyriq is also very well-equipped, featuring front massaging seats, a new Surround Vision Recorder, and GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driving technology as standard. A 33-inch-diagonal, curved, advanced LED screen is also standard.
Other highlights include Cadillac’s next-generation Active Noise Cancellation system and an AKG Studio 19-speaker audio system with speakers in the headrest, a new, dual-plane augmented reality-enhanced head-up display, and supervised remote parking.
Notably, interior color options are also limited to just two:
Power in the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq comes 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 provides an estimated 300 miles of range per charge.
The mid-size battery-electric CUV tips the scales rides on the GM BEV3 platform at 5,610 pounds, which is nearly as heavy as the two-wheel-drive version of the full-size 2021 Cadillac Escalade. This 340 horsepower version of the Cadillac Lyriq will wear a 450E badge, as per Cadillac’s new torque-based naming convention it first introduced back in 2019.

You mean now closed. They filled up the reservation slots in 15 minutes.
That is excellent news. Cadillac should open more reservations for those who were left out.
They said they’d open again in Summer of 2022. So I think it’s a slow rollout.
The whole idea was to get a few thousand launch edition reservations to schedule out the start of production next spring, Cadillac says you will be able to buy the regular Lyriq beginning next Summer and dealers can order based on their allocations.
This is about strategy. You offer a number that sells out. You deliver these early and then use the PR excitement and introduction of other options and colors to build as time goes on.
If you just sent these out and they sat on dealer lots even if they were selling well it would not drive public interest as much on the web sites and media.
Tesla takes all sorts of preorders but yet many are never delivered. But that excitement is there.
Also they will do a slow roll out like stated here. They can ill afford any mistakes or problems. I expect the Cadillac owners here will be the best kept in decades.
Ya beat me to it. Cadillac posted that news on IG A FULL 19 HOURS AGO. Well before this item was posted.
…..It should be remembered though that a “Reservation” is NOT the same thing as a sale.
If this is the Debut Edition model only reserved, I wonder what the regular Luxury trim features and tech will be left out going forward for next fall ’22?
The big question is, will it burn like the Bolt!
Will the owners be able to park these in their garages and next to other cars? Do they need to carry extra fire insurance?
Exactly. They are still partnered with LG who made all of the faulty Bolt batteries. Who is to say these will not catch fire also.
I would wait until they offer more colors and features and awd, like Tesla, they may do a cadillac lyriq long range version later since auto makers tend to save the best for last. The rwd base lyriq may have a range of 300miles but I thing Cadillac will come out a long range version of the lyriq later like what Tesla does. I also heard this is the base luxury trim level, so I think there will be more cool and fancy features to come in the higher levels like premium luxury.
Cool story bro now they need to fix the battery issue since you called them “the king of electric” when in reality they are the king of fire right now
The LYRIQ is not using the same batteries like the Bolt. GM is importing the pack for LG while GM is making their own batteries w/ joint partnership with LG Chem here in the states.
Lol right at least I can keep myself warm in the winter time while it’s burning
You mean burn yourself, that’s if it does catch on fire.
The bolt ev and the lyriq both have different batteries, Tesla had fire issues too. I didn’t say there the king of electric, I said they claim themselves to be the best at electric.
Lol. GM is late again. 300-mile range lol. The standard is at least 400. By the time this car goes on sale, the standard will be at least 500.
The standard was just raised to 500 by the new Lucid EV.
Lucid is a car and the Lyriq is a crossover with their smaller batter pack. The Celestiq should be able to match the Lucid Air.
Yes the Lucid is a manufacturer and this is their first EV. Apparently they have taken the time to research before bringing their first EV to market. I will say however after researching that they are up in the ultra luxurious level as far as price. You could buy 4 Bolts or 2 Teslas for the price of the Lucid.
The $160K Lucid is a limited edition and sold out.. Lucid vehicles that are for sale start at $130K, and have 516 mille range, and efficiency of 125 MPGE
I would like when there will be more colors for the lyriq
What a failure. GM pissed off a lot more potential customers than actual reservations.
When will GM release the Buick Lacross all electric?
Or an Encore EV with the new battery technology.
When will GM release information on the smaller all electric vehicles?
Yeah several have noticed this….As such this article is WAY out of date….. Reservations closed on 9/18 and this is 9/20? Just checked Lyriq website and they’re still closed….
Apparently just a few slots were ever available, – and I wouldn’t have reserved one even though 6 of my 7 plug-ins have/are GM vehicles.. I’ll wait much longer for more color choices – for one thing.
GM lately is appearing more like a dime-store effort rather than a large car company…
Sorry to see this happening to a once great company… On the plus side, they no longer have the ability to run roughshod over the USA – an example of that would be shutting down the entire nation-wide Electric street car system through dummy companies just so that could sell more smelly diesel buses.
Couldn’t of said it better myself.
