The 2023 calendar year is set to be an interesting one for Cadillac, as the luxury marque is expected to introduce a few mid-cycle refreshes for its product lineup. So, in order to get a grasp of Caddy’s plans, here’s a breakdown on what to expect from Cadillac in North America, and what will be chronologically introduced in the 2023 calendar year.
First up is the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq AWD in base Luxury trim. With production set to start early in the 2023 calendar year, this Lyriq variant features an Ultium Drive motor on each of the front and rear axles, producing a combined 500 horsepower. Production will take place alongside the current RWD configuration of the Lyriq, at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee.
Following the 2023 Lyriq AWD, GM is set to introduce the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq in Spring 2023, with a starting price of about $60,000. For the 2024 model year, the Lyriq will receive an updated model lineup to include the Lyriq Sport and Lyriq Premium Luxury. This trim level expansion will serve to solidify the Cadillac Y trim level strategy, as these new variants will provide a more rounded model lineup overall.
The Cadillac XT4 is set to receive a mid-cycle refresh for the 2024 model year. Currently, production of the refreshed XT4 is scheduled to commence on April 24th. This revision is expected to bring revised front and rear fascias, a new widescreen digital instrument panel and infotainment screen, as well as Super Cruise.
Production of the 2024 Cadillac CT4 is currently scheduled to kick off in July 2023. At this time, it’s unknown exactly what changes the refreshed CT4 will receive, but we expect them to be similar to those of the of the CT4’s larger platform-mate, the Cadillac CT5.
Speaking of which, the 2024 Cadillac CT5 is also scheduled to begin production in July 2023, the same time as the smaller CT4. The CT5’s mid-cycle refresh will feature a revamped front fascia and an overhauled cockpit that is highlighted by a similar infotainment screen setup to that of the refreshed 2024 Cadillac XT4.
Finally, Caddy’s full-size SUV, the Cadillac Escalade, is scheduled to launch in November 2023. We expect the luxury SUV to receive a mid-cycle refresh with mild revisions to the front and rear fascias, while upgrading to the revised 3.0L LZ0 I6 turbodiesel Duramax. In addition, GM Authority spies have captured photos of prototypes testing a new antenna design.
The production version of the 2024 Cadillac Celestiq was officially revealed back in October 2022, the brand’s new hand-built, extremely exclusive and very costly halo car. It will ride on the GM BEV3 platform, it will be highly customizable and manufactured at GM’s Global Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. Production is scheduled to begin in late 2023.
