2023 Cadillac Lyriq

Cadillac did an actual reveal of the new EV Lyriq crossover this week. The more I see, the more I like. What I'm really surprised by the most was the listed starting price of under $60K.

Things I like:

The 33" display similar to the new Escalade
SuperCruise
300+ Mile Range
All the funky lighting
It looks like a traditional car on the inside.


Things I don't like:
It's a crossover. it could replace our Suburban though.

First orders taken in 09/21 and will ship as a 2023 in 1H22.

Today marked a pioneering moment for Cadillac that illuminates the brand’s future and resets the fundamental notions of luxury motoring. The production debut of the 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ is the culmination of a century of innovation and the beginning of a great new era. With testing of Cadillac’s inaugural electric luxury SUV running ahead of schedule, the brand announced that customers may place order reservations beginning in September 2021, with initial availability starting the first half of 2022.

At launch, LYRIQ will be available with premier technologies and stirring performance capabilities enabled by the vehicle’s dedicated electric architecture. A 12-module, 100 kilowatt-hour battery pack and a rear-wheel-drive Ultium Platform deliver a Cadillac-estimated 340 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque — and a Cadillac-estimated over 300 miles of range with a full charge.

LYRIQ also offers high-speed DC fast charging for public stations at 190 kW, enabling customers to add an estimated 76 miles of range in about 10 minutes of charging time. For home charging, LYRIQ offers a segment-leading 19.2 kW charging module, which can add up to 52 miles of range per hour of charge.

To help customers take full control of their electric driving experience, LYRIQ will feature next-generation variable Regen on Demand technology, along with the convenience of One-Pedal Driving. With Cadillac’s new variable Regen on Demand, drivers can control how quickly LYRIQ slows down or comes to a complete stop using a pressure-sensitive paddle located on the steering wheel. Both technologies make use of regenerative braking to help maximize electric driving efficiency.

Additional 2023 LYRIQ highlights include:
▪ Available Super Cruise, the industry’s first true hands-free driver-assistance technology for compatible roads
▪ A stunning 33-inch-diagonal advanced LED display with the ability to emit over 1 billion colors
▪ Cadillac’s next-generation Active Noise Cancellation system
▪ Slim-line LED headlamps with choreographed lighting sequence
▪ AKG Studio 19-speaker audio system with headrest speakers
▪ KeyPass digital vehicle access
▪ Dual level charge cord
▪ Standard 20-inch split six-spoke alloy wheels or optional 22-inch dynamic split-spoke Reverse Rim alloy wheels

Customers will be able to select from Satin Steel Metallic or Stellar Black Metallic exterior colors, and Sky Cool Gray or Noir for the interior.

The interior is clean and simple with a focus on secondary and tertiary design elements, including intricate laser etched patterns through wood over metal decor, which has never been done before. The large, curved LED screen is the centerpiece and all the components are incorporated artfully, blurring the lines of separation among technology, lighting and decor.

Perhaps the most striking example of Cadillac’s next iteration of brand styling is its distinctive black crystal grille.

The signature vertical lighting is emphasized through lighting choreography. The exterior lighting is a major technological breakthrough, allowing Cadillac to deliver on the promise of truly vertical lamps, an industry first.

The 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ is expected to go into production in the first quarter of 2022, with pricing starting at $59,990. It will be produced at GM’s Spring Hill, Tennessee assembly facility, which is receiving a $2 billion investment to support electric vehicle production. An additional $2.3 billion is being invested in an all-new battery cell manufacturing plant at Spring Hill, by Ultium Cells LLC, the joint venture between GM and LG Energy Solution.

A new ad campaign featuring the 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ debuts April 25, during the Oscars broadcast.

Cadillac Lyriq Preliminary Specifications:
▪ Length/width/height/wheelbase – 196.7/77.8/63.9/121.8 in
▪ Curb weight – 5,610 ln
▪ Cargo volume – 28.0 cu-ft
▪ Engine – Permanent magnet electric motor
▪ Max output – 340 hp (255 kW)
▪ Max torque – 325 lb-ft (44 Nm)
▪ Transmission – Single-speed, RWD
▪ Battery capacity – 100 kWh
▪ Estimated driving range – More than 300 miles
▪ Charging at 120 V – 3.5 miles of range per hour of charge time
▪ Charging at 240 V (11.5 kW AC) – 31 miles of range per hour of charge time
▪ Charging at 240V (19.2 kW AC) – 52 miles of range per hour of charge time
▪ Charging at DC Fast Charge – Up to 76 miles of range in 10 minutes of charge time
▪ Charging at DC Fast Charge – Up to 195 miles of range in 30 minutes of charge time

I told some of my friends that Cadillac’s design cues would be the easiest to translate to EV amongst the quasi-luxury vehicles.
This one looks good. My only issue is that ressembles too much Focus Mk2 (european) on the side profile.

Let’s see how the market will react, this the best one so far.

Also, I liked the solution to keep the airflow attached on the back section. Let me try to find a picture of that.

Please don't say they actually made the grill light up... Not only is that tacky, but I hate to think how it looks when one of the light elements is damaged...

I didn’t see that before. It wasn’t needed, the lights that came from CT6 referesh would be good enough. You know it is a Cadillac and it is still beautiful.

As far as I know, it will do exactly what's in the videos, except I suspect you can turn it off. That's my hope anyway, although I sort of like it.

The interesting part is the base price on this is less than, say a used 2017 CTS-V, which are going for between $65K and $75K right now. Lowest I've seen in a month is a 2016 with 87K miles for $57K.

Those last ICE vehicles with something special will be hard to get (pricey). One friend tried to get a GT350 and ended up taking a GT pp2 due to similar effect.
I saw similar when I was looking between the Camaro and Brz, the one from Chevy rose in price to a point that did not make sense to me.

CT6 platinum is one of the nicest I drove on this class (4.2 TT).

If one can't set the lighting to sync with the techno playing I'm not interested.

It's pronounced Lyric, and is supposedly a callout that the Cadillac car brand is the most named brand in all of music.

Quote:
This Article: Cadillac announced late last year that it would revert back to real model names and slowly phase out the current alphanumeric nomenclature over the next little while. The first vehicle to arrive under this new naming convention will be the Cadillac Lyriq EV. Lyriq is a brand new name for Cadillac, so many fans may be wondering how General Motors came up with it and what its origins are.

We were also wondering what was behind the Cadillac Lyriq nameplate, so we asked Cadillac’s head of global brand strategy, Phil Dauchy, to shed some light on the matter. Dauchy told GM Authority executive editor, Alex Luft, that the Lyriq name is part of a new Cadillac naming structure that will see all vehicle names end in “iq.” These “iq” names will replace the CT# and XT# nomenclature used on current cars and crossovers powered by internal combustion engines and are intended to signal a change of course at Cadillac – that being from ICE to EV.

Dauchy also said the new nomenclature “signals that Cadillac is bringing a different type of vehicle to market, one that works in concert with man, nature, and machine.”

As for how Cadillac came up with Lyriq specifically, Dauchy explained that the name is a nod to the fact that Cadillac is the most mentioned brand in songs. No other brand (not just automotive brands) is mentioned in more songs than Cadillac.

Additionally, the “iq” suffix names provide a sort of alteration of sorts for Cadillac brand cars. With Cadillac and the model name both ending in an “ick” sound, these names roll off the tongue quite well. Take the Cadillac Celestiq nameplate, for example, the smooth-flowing name assigned to the automaker’s upcoming flagship luxury sedan. Speaking of the Celestiq, Dauchy promises fans will be wowed by what the hand-built electric full-size sedan has to offer when it finally debuts.

“When you see [the Cadillac Celestiq], its size, presence and scale all connote the emotion associated with the name,” Dauchy explained.
But, you think that's bad, check out the narration in the "Lookbook". For example, describing the tire tread on page 2

"Lyriq is in essence, the embodiment of harmony, right down to the patterning on the tread of the tire, like a metronome ticking, as art on a canvas, precise, confident, this is the essence we will explore"

I mean I know the speaker is a designer, but geez, how many times do you have to say that before you can do it with a straight face. And that is one of the more tame ones.

I will say though, I like the Cadillac signature on the tires. Too bad you'll lose that eventually.
