Cadillac Brings First Changes To 2024 LYRIQ
The 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ is slowly making its way to dealerships, and the luxury brand is already proposing a few changes (mostly cosmetic) for its 2024 model.
First, the LYRIQ will see its lineup expanded to three variants: Techno, Luxury and Sport. Buyers will also be able to choose from eight body colours and four interior trims.

Also on the visual side, options include a two-panel sunroof and two-tone exterior paint. Unlike the 2023 model, all 2024 LYRIQs - rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive - will come with a standard 11.5 kW charging module, while the 19.2 kW module will be optional. The rear-wheel drive 2023 version comes standard with a 19.2 kW module.
According to Cadillac's website, the range is estimated at 495 kilometres (rear-wheel drive) or 494 kilometres (all-wheel drive) with the 102 kWh battery. The interior features a 33-inch LED display, Smart System safety and driver assistance systems, one-pedal driving and cell phone induction charging. The 19-speaker AKG audio system is optional.
Prices for the 2024 model have not yet been announced and production will begin this spring. Otherwise, General Motors assures us that production of the vehicle is picking up speed.
