The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq is an extremely important model for Cadillac, offered as the first all-electric production vehicle to bear the Caddy crest. Naturally, a vehicle like that is bound to draw all kinds of questions, and now, GM Authority is here to answer your most pressing queries.
In case you missed it, GM Authority was one of the first in the world to drive a 2023 Cadillac Lyriq over the summer, with readers invited to post their questions in the comments section of an article published this past June. Now, we’re here to answer those questions in the following exclusive GM Authority video.
Hosted, by GM Authority Executive Editor Alex Luft, the video addresses readers’ questions point by point, with plenty of visual illustration to boot. Indeed, there’s quite a bit that readers would like to know about this critical new addition to the Cadillac lineup.
Customers are certainly eager to get their hands on one, as evidenced by the fact that the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition sold out just minutes after GM began taking pre-orders last year. That makes sense, since the Lyriq certainly has its appeal – promising a combination of cutting-edge technology and the traditional Cadillac backside coddling. Plus, the fact that GM isn’t making that many Lyriq units initially doesn’t help in making many Lyriqs available for sale.
Per our recent test drive, GM Authority found that the new Lyriq delivers on that promise, offering a driving experience characterized as “quiet, collected, comfortable” by Executive Editor Luft. The luxury crossover is also quite “healthy” when it comes to performance, with 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque on tap thanks to a single rear-mounted electric motor. Critically, more performance will be available from the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq AWD model, which features a dual-motor powertrain that doles out 500 horses and 450 pound-feet of torque.
