2023 Cadillac Lyriq To Get These Two Additional Paint Colors15
General Motors has revealed two additional paint colors that will be offered on the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq crossover.
The new Cadillac Lyriq paint colors unveiled today include Opulent Blue Metallic and Crystal White Tricoat, which join the existing Satin Steel Metallic and Stellar Black Metallic colors we saw previously.
The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition is only available in Satin Steel Metallic or Stellar Black Metallic, however series production versions of the battery-electric crossover will also be available to order in Opulent Blue Metallic and Crystal White Tricoat from launch.
GM began accepting pre-orders for the sold-out Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition last year and will begin accepting orders for series production versions of the battery-electric crossover with either rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive on May 19th. Pricing for the 2023 Lyriq with RWD starts at $62,990, while the AWD model is priced from $64,990.
Power in the Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition comes from a single motor Ultium Drive powertrain rated at 340 horsepower and 324 pound-feet of torque, along with a 12-module, 100.4 kWh Ultium battery pack providing a GM-estimated 300 miles of driving range on a full charge. GM has yet to provide official specs for the Lyriq AWD, with the automaker only saying this model “adds a second drive unit, placed at the front of the vehicle to enhance vehicle dynamics and performance even further for drivers.”
An exclusive report from GM Authority was also able to shed some light on the Lyriq AWD last week. We expect the all-wheel-drive Lyriq to feature a dual-motor powertrain good for up to 500 horsepower, along with an 11.5-kW onboard charger that can add roughly 37 miles of driving range in one hour’s time. GM may offer up more details on the Lyriq AWD once the order books open later this week.
The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edtion began rolling off the line at GM’s Spring Hill plant in Tennessee in late March. Initial deliveries of the battery-electric luxury crossover will begin this summer.

I’d like to see that blue under some sunlight, it just looks black in the picture.
Same blue that was on the C7 Corvette and 2017 Volt.
They should offer a green color like evergreen grey metallic or hunter metallic.
I would like to dark green used on the 1992 Bonneville, LeSaber, and Olds 88. Still my favorite GM color.
Interesting how Cadillac gives the paint colors names Opulent, Crystal, Stellar) that seemingly try to elevate them from “ordinary” colors.
… yeah and the names of colours are better names than the car itself…
Oh boy, two additional colors… I guess I should be thrilled that at least one of them isn’t grayscale. Seriously though, I’ve been waiting to see this thing in red (or garnet/black cherry) preferably with some red, or at least maple sugar/peanut butter colored seats. I don’t understand why they are keeping the color choices so limited here.
More colors are coming. Supply constraints are making it very difficult to launch a new product from the ground up right now. Simplifying the manufacturing process upon debut ensures they get these on the road in a timely manner. Then they can scale out. Just the way things are right now, unfortunately.
Get it out in a timely manner? This thing has been advertised so long it’s due for a refresh before the first unit hits the streets! Why can Genesis, for example, introduce completely new models in a myriad of gloss and satin paints but GM can’t. Someone needs a swift kick in the . . .
Genesis’s current lineup is modular, sharing a myriad of complements. Ultium is a 100% new architecture that is still being scaled out from scratch. Also consider Genesis’ parent company, Hyundai, is the only automaker that produces their own steel and integrates this process internally. Manufacturing is a complicated system. Hyundai has their system perfected for ICE vehicles. It’s not just about offering paint colors. It’s about keeping manufacturing combinations at a minimum to initially deliver the product in times of crippling constraints.
For the Lyriq to become a truly luxurious automobile, Cadillac needs to look at the swath of deep reds, midnight blues, dark greens and silvers as used by car companies like Aston Martin, Porsche, and Bentley.
… no green ?
For different colors there are vinyl wraps available . The advantage is that it is not permanent and you can change the color when you get bored by it.
Be nice if they didn’t make ya pay thousands to get the colour of choice though…
Nice 👍 now I want to see cherry red tint coat on one of these please!
