- 2024 Cadillac Lyric added new trim options, which now include Tech, Luxury, and Sport.
- Range estimates are slightly lower than last year, moving from 312 miles on a full load to 308 miles in the rear-wheel drive version, and 307 miles in the all-wheel drive version.
- Cadillacs expands the colors available for the Lyriq 2024 to eight, giving shoppers more room to personalize.
Cadillac’s luxury electric SUV enters its second year with a much broader lineup. The 2024 Lyriq trim level is revised, with the base model now called Tech, the mid-range trim called Luxury, and the new Sport trim at the top of the range.
The differences between the trim levels seem to be mostly comfort and cosmetic. The base trim gets the same standard safety features as the top trim, but stepping up to the Luxury trim gives access to features such as choreographed exterior lighting, illuminated exterior door handles, rain-sensing wipers, and more. The Sport trim is visually distinguished by dark chrome trim on the front and rear fascias and windows and body moldings. Both the Luxury and Sport trims can also be selected with 22-inch wheels instead of the standard 20-inch wheels.
The exterior paint color options expanded to eight, giving us our first look at the Lyriq besides silver. The base trim is only available with a two-tone black interior color scheme, but both top trims have four interior options available.
Interestingly, Cadillac lowered the Lyriq’s estimated range, from 312 miles on the rear-wheel drive model to 308 miles on the RWD version and 307 miles on the AWD version. Our standard EV highway reach test on a 2023 rear-drive model yielded a 75 mph range result from 270 miles.
Power figures have not changed, with 340 horsepower from the single-motor, rear-drive version and 500 hp from the dual-motor AWD version. We still haven’t ridden the dual-motor Lyriq, but we’re rolling out a rear-wheel drive version up to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. That’s fast enough by SUV standards, but a bit behind in the current era of EV dragsters.
Cadillac says more information about the 2024 Lyriq is coming soon, so stay tuned for pricing details and specs.
