The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq launched with the limited-run Debut Edition trim level and will also be available in the Luxury RWD and Luxury AWD configurations. As many GM Authority readers will know, the Luxury serves as the base trim level in Cadillac’s product portfolio, which means the 2023 model year Lyriq is only being sold in the least expensive trim for the time being.
This will change for the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq, with GM likely to offer a more traditional trim level lineup. It will likely consist of the base Luxury trim, as well as the two Premium Luxury and Sport branches. Uplevel Platinum versions of the Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels may also be offered, however Cadillac has yet to confirm this.
We also expect Cadillac will offer additional exterior colors on the 2024 Lyriq. As we reported previously, the 2023 model year offers a total of four exterior colors, including Opulent Blue Metallic, Crystal White Tricoat, Satin Steel Metallic and Stellar Black Metallic. Only two interior colors are being offered for 2023, Noir and Sky Cool Gray, so it seems likely GM will also expand interior color options for the coming model year. Similarly, the Luxury trim level is only available with Inteluxe simulated leather upholstery, so real leather may come on higher trim levels for 2024, along with additional interior and exterior trim options and additional 20-inch and 22-inch wheel options.
GM Authority also confirmed the Cadillac Lyriq will eventually be offered with heated outboard rear seats, although these are not offered on any of the 2023 model year trim levels.
GM has likely opted to simplify the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq order books in the first model year, as this is a brand new EV that will take some time to reach full production capacity at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee. More potential build configurations can complicate the production process, slowing the line down at a time when the Lyriq is in extremely high demand.
Pricing for the 2023 Lyriq Luxury RWD starts at $62,990, while the Luxury AWD model is priced from $64,990. GM has sold out its available pre-order slots for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, but is accepting waiting list reservations for 2023, as well as reservations for the 2024 model year.
