GM Authority executive editor Alex Luft will have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq this week, giving us the opportunity to answer any questions you have about the upcoming battery-electric luxury crossover.
The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition, which sold out in minutes after GM began accepting pre-orders last year, began rolling off the line at GM’s Spring Hill plant in Tennessee in late March. This model has a single Ultium Drive electric motor powering the rear wheels, which is rated at 340 horsepower and 324 pound-feet of torque, along with a 12-module, 100.4 kWh Ultium battery pack providing an EPA-estimated 312 miles of driving range on a full charge. This is the same powertrain that will be found in the series production Luxury RWD trim level, which will enter production later this year. GM will also offer a Lyriq Luxury AWD trim for the 2023MY, which will feature a dual-motor powertrain rated at over 500 pound-feet of torque.
Pre-orders for the 2023 model year Cadillac Lyriq are now full, as we reported previously, although customers can still put their name on the waiting list to receive a 2024 model year vehicle. Customers on the waiting list may be contacted to purchase a 2023MY vehicle if some reservation holders decide not to go ahead with the purchase of the vehicle.
While this week will allow us to sample the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq for the first time, the driving impressions are under a media embargo until June 28th, so it will be about a week or so until we can answer most of the questions readers may have. We’ll still be one of the first publications to drive the vehicle, though, so leave your questions in the comments below and we’ll be sure to answer them as soon as we can!
