The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq is a very important vehicle for Cadillac, ushering in a new all-electric era as Caddy’s very first production EV. Unsurprisingly, the Cadillac Lyriq is replete with interesting little details that reflect this unique positioning, including a Cadillac brand logo on the vehicle’s windows.
GM Authority Executive Editor Alex Luft recently spent some wheel time with the new 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, giving us his driving impressions as well as an in-depth interior tour of the interior (see video below). Among the noteworthy details are small Cadillac logos and script located in the the vehicle’s windows.
These include a small Cadillac Crest located in the corners of the windows, presented via a black outline and transparent inner bits. The logo is complemented by wordage that provides details about the glass, with the words using the latest Cadillac-style font.
This detail is particularly noteworthy for a few different reasons. Typically, GM vehicles incorporate a GM logo in the glass, rather than the specific brand logo – as per the photo below. That makes the Lyriq crossover the only Cadillac vehicle to have Cadillac logos in the glass. What’s more, the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq is currently the only GM vehicle in general to incorporate a specific brand logo (as opposed to a GM logo) in the window.
Luxury, as they say, is all about the smallest details, and that extends to things like logos. Even though this logo may be quite small, it reminds the passenger and driver that they are, in fact, driving or riding in a Cadillac. Meanwhile, the fact that the Lyriq is the only model to have the Cadillac Crest, instead of the GM logo, on its glass is actually quite a big deal disguised as a small detail.
As a reminder, the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq produces 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque via a single rear-mounted electric motor, while the upcoming Lyriq Luxury AWD will bump combined output to more than 500 pound-feet of torque. Under the skin is the GM BEV3 platform, while production takes place at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee.
