The Cadillac Lyriq has received its first update to become a 2024 model in the U.S. The revisions for the new model year bring many new features and colors, more performance, and new capabilities. This is the Lyriq many prospective customers eagerly anticipated for almost a year.

Here’s everything we know about the upgraded, 2024 Cadillac Lyriq in the U.S. Please bear in mind that the images and some information featured in this article correspond to the previous model year, and any forthcoming updates will be added accordingly.


The Cadillac Lyriq is a low-slung electric SUV sitting on the GM BEV3 modular EV platform. It is 196.7 in. long, 77.8 in. wide, and 63.9 in. tall. Its wheelbase measures 121.8 in. The new electric SUV offers a passenger volume of 105.1 cu. ft. and a cargo volume of 28.0 cu. ft., expandable to 60.8 cu. ft. by folding down the rear seats.

Unlike the outgoing Lyriq, the 2024 Lyriq comes in a dual-motor AWD variant as well. It has an ‘E4’ badge on the tailgate denoting the additional front motor. The AWD variant’s powertrain produces 500 hp and 450 lb.-ft. of torque. Unlike the RWD variant, it is tow-rated, with the capability of trailering up to 3,500 lbs.

The 2024 Lyriq RWD and AWD models have a 102 kWh lithium-ion NCMA battery that can be charged with alternating current at up to 19.2 kW or with direct current at up to 190 kW. Adjustable regenerative braking and one-pedal driving are standard.

The 2024 Lyriq RWD is a little more efficient than the previous model. With an EPA-est. range of 314 miles, it travels an extra 2 miles on a single charge. The 2024 Lyriq AWD has an EPA-est. range of 307 miles.

According to a report from Cadillac Society, the 2024 Lyriq will likely see the addition of a high-performance V variant. The 2024 Lyriq-V should have two motors, one for each axle, producing over 550 horsepower and at least around 650 lb.-ft. of torque.

On the outside, GM has equipped the Lyriq with features like slim LED headlamps with choreographed lighting sequence, a black crystal grille, and 22-inch split-spoke Reverse Rim alloy wheels.

Styling packages

According to a new report from Cadillac Society, customers buying the Lyriq-V will be able to make it look more unique with an Exterior Appearance Package or a Carbon Fiber Package. The Exterior Appearance Package includes a front splitter, rocker extensions, and a rear fascia valance, all in a gloss black finish. The Carbon Fiber Package includes a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber rocker inserts, and carbon fiber rear valance inserts.

Deployable door handles

The MY2024 update has brought one big change to the Lyriq, although it might get easily unnoticed until you see it up close. Instead of fixed electronic door handles with a push-button, there are new, deployable electronic door handles. The new door handles are simpler to operate, but they feature the same design. The driver and passengers need to simply press their front portion to deploy them, after which they have to pull them to open the doors.

Key card access

Another new exterior feature the Lyriq has received with the MY2024 update is key card access. Customers can unlock, lock, and start the Lyriq using a credit card-sized key card. All they’ll need to do is tap this card at the bottom of the B-pillar. The EV can accept up to 8 key cards, so all the family members can have their separate key cards.

New colors

The Lyriq has gained five new exterior colors with the MY2024 update: Argent Silver Metallic, Radiant Red Tintcoat (extra charge), Celestial Metallic (extra charge), Nimbus Metallic (extra charge), and Emerald Lake Metallic (extra charge). Also new for MY2024 is a black roof option to create a dual-tone color scheme.


Interior highlights of the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq include a curved, 33-inch LED display that harmoniously integrates the instrument cluster and the infotainment system, a 19-speaker AKG Studio audio system that includes speakers in the front headrests, Super Cruise, digital key, cantilevered center console, and wood trim.

Unlike the previous model, the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq features a tri-zone automatic climate control system, rear heated outboard seats, a panoramic power-opening sunroof with power shade, and 5G Wi-Fi hotspot. Also new in the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq is a head-up display, which, in addition to the primary functions, shows the warnings of the various advanced driver assistance systems. Additionally,

The Lyriq also features Cadillac’s next-gen Active Noise Cancellation system. Based on the road vibration measured, the system actively cancels road-induced noise using the speaker. Acoustic laminated glass tries to keep unwanted road noise from entering the cabin as much as possible.


The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq is available in the carried-over Luxury trim, a new base trim ‘Tech,’ and a new top-end trim ‘Sport.’

Production & Sales

General Motors manufactures the Lyriq in the U.S. at its Spring Hill, Tennessee, assembly plant. The company sold just 122 units of the electric SUV in 2022, but 2023 is looking to be much better, with 2,316 units sold between January and June. Despite the improvement, the sales figures remain low. In comparison, Mercedes, with its recently introduced EQE SUV, performed better, clocking 2,845 units in the same period.

During the Q1 2023 earnings conference call on April 25, 2023, CEO Mary Barra said that GM made more than 2,000 units of the Lyriq between January and March 2023. The company will continue ramping up Lyriq production to meet pent-up demand, she added.

During the Q2 2023 earnings conference call on July 25, 2023, without updating on the Lyriq’s production, Barra said GM achieved its targeted North American EV production of 50,000 units for the first half of the year. “We’ve had more than 2,000 customer reserve GMC Hummer, EVs, and Cadillac Lyriq in transit to dealers at the end of June,” she added.

Price & Release Date

Priced from USD 58,590, the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq has started arriving at U.S. dealerships. We’ve seen the new model in stock at Leominster, Massachusetts-based Durant Cadillac, Herculaneum, Missouri-based Sapaugh Cadillac, Kendall Cadillac of Nampa in Nampa, Idaho, Carrollton, Georgia-based John Thornton Cadillac, and many other outlets.

In the future, the Lyriq will be available to rent as well. Hertz CEO Stephen Scherr went on a drive-along with Mary Barra, discussing EV adoption (via YouTube/Hertz). Scherr, who was behind the wheel, expressed his keenness to include the Lyriq in the Hertz fleet, adding that the car rental platform would be an avenue to introduce people to both the Lyriq and EVs.

TopElectricSUV says

The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq offers something truly unique in its segment, and it’s a great buy for luxury EV customers who want to stand out in a crowd of Teslas and German imports. Priced 35% lower than the Model X, and well under the Audi Q8 e-tron and BMW iX, the Lyriq proves that going green doesn’t have to come at an insane premium and holds the potential to make EVs more mainstream in its segment.

However, the best is yet to come, with a punchier, dual-motor variant and an even more exciting dual-motor ‘V’ variant, scheduled to join the line-up shortly, when supply is expected to be much better. We think that’s when we’ll see Detroit’s finest coming to the market, and the wait will be worth it!
