What To Expect From Cadillac In 202324
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.

When will we see and read about the next electric Cadillac?
How about an interior refresh for the CT4 that adds some legroom for the rear seat passengers? The current configuration is a joke. I like my car, but consider it to be a 2-seater and don’t want anyone to have to try and sit in the back.
I always thought he ATS-L (China only) was a really great option that we never got, so don’t hold your breath.
It’s always been a 2-seater with room for groceries only in the rear.
I want the CT6 brought back. I own a 2017 Premium and a 2020 Premium Luxury and will be wanting to replace the 2017. Looks like it won’t be another Cadillac.
The CT4 WAS a refresh of the ATS. The only way to add rear legroom would be to extend the wheelbase (which they do or did offer in China, BTW). They did manage to add rear head clearance with the sunroof on the CT4 as compared to the ATS, and also made the sunroof MUCH quieter when open, so there’s that. Plus, the CT4 has a slightly bigger trunk, with a notably bigger trunk opening, due to a slightly longer rear overhang. Don’t expect any other packaging miracles without a complete redesign. That would be highly doubtful, unfortunately, as all of the American manufacturers appear to be abandoning cars En masse.
Walter Grivna: Wouldn’t that be the CT5?
I’m not sure I really care about any of this since Cadillac has become primarily a Chinese car Company !!
where is the XT5 ??????? SOON CADILLAC WILL BE SIDE BY SIDE WITH THE REST OF THE DEFUNK GM’S STOP pushing this EV crap we are not ready for it !!!!
As far as I know, the XT5 is done in 2024.
The order guide for the 2024 lyriq is already available for those interested in seeing the exact trim breakdown and color options 🙂
Thanks for the information. I had checked about a week ago, and it hadn’t been posted yet. Yay, sunroof. Boo, no red interior. I didn’t see any mention of head up display, which GMA previously mentioned would be coming for 2024.
We know the next ICE XT5 will be China only which is an absolute joke. Also how come the flagship XT6 crossover is not getting the same interior update as the XT4? Will tbis happen in 2024 for 2025? Can someone please confirm this?
Yes China only.
Any idea when the CT5 refresh will be unveiled? Or will we not really know what it will look like until after production begins?
I’m waiting to hear more news about the BEV Escalade and baby LYRIQ revelation this year for ’25 model year.
None of them excite me, unless I got it free.
How about a large sedan instead of all this crossover crap?
Wow, no XT6 refresh? The car is clearly behind any and all competitors. Was hoping to stay with Cadillac when my 2020’s lease ends this year but without a refresh, the XT6 just doesn’t cut it compared to the competition, especially in terms of in cabin tech. That 8 inch infotainment screen is trash in the class.
GM need to bring back Cadillac CTS
The only thing that is missing is the CT6, Celestiq’s low production numbers (100/year) makes it irrelevant as far as sales are concerned.
Supposedly, a second large EV sedan is in the works for mass production at a more normal Cadillac price. I’m not holding my breath. I was hoping they’d mass produce the Blackwing V8 with and without turbos (replacing the 3.6V6), but a new ICE sedan is a pipe dream–unless the EVs don’t sell well, a distinct possibility I certainly hope GM is prepared for.
I, for one, expect nothing less than total utter recidivism in 2023
I ordered a cadillac escalade in Feb 2021 still don’t have it yet all these new cars are coming out. Yet they say they don’t have parts? I’m 2 in line but they can’t tell me when production will start or when it will be delivered..very disappointed how no one has answers!
Thanks for nothing Cadillac!
