The upcoming 2024 Cadillac Lyriq-V will be available with one of two optional appearance packages, GM Authority has learned from sources familiar with the matter.
The two appearance options for the Cadillac Lyriq-V are the Exterior Appearance Package and the Exterior Carbon Fiber package. These two packages are exclusive the Lyriq-V and will not be offered for the Tech, Luxury, or Sport trim levels.
The Exterior Appearance Package will include the following features:
- Gloss Black front splitter
- Gloss Black rocker extensions
- Gloss Black rear fascia valance
Meanwhile, the Exterior Carbon Fiber package will contain the following elements:
- Carbon Fiber front splitter
- Carbon Fiber rocker inserts
- Carbon Fiber rear fascia valance inserts
The Cadillac Lyriq-V already offers a series of aesthetic upgrades that make it distinctively different from the standard 2024 Cadillac Lyriq. Based on the 2024 Lyriq Sport, the Lyriq-V offers a sporty and sinister appearance.
The exterior details setting the Cadillac Lyriq-V apart include a unique front fascia and a lower grille borrowed from Cadillac’s current V-Series models. A unique, sportier body kit alters the Lyriq-V’s profile and theoretically offers additional aerodynamic streamlining. The lower rear fascia is also distinctive to the trim. The interior is expected to feature V-Series badging and possibly a unique colorway as well.
The Cadillac Lyriq-V will be equipped with a two-motor setup that will be more powerful than the Lyriq AWD, which boasts 500 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. The V-Series EV is also expected to be include a Continuous Damping Control suspension combined with front and rear Brembo brakes. These brakes will feature larger discs and fixed calipers up front instead of the other Lyriq variants’ non-branded, sliding caliper brakes. A summer tire package should also be offered as an option.
As for underlying vehicle structure, the Cadillac Lyriq-V rides on the GM BEV3 platform and draws motivation from GM Ultium batteries and GM Ultium Drive motors. While the Lyriq AWD’s driving range is pegged at 307 miles per charge, the Lyriq-V’s range could be slightly lower due to its different wheel and tire setup.
