Cadillac Lyriq Named Semifinalist For 2023 NACTOY Awards

Posted on

Back in June, the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq was named one of the eligible candidates for the North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle (NACTOY) Award of the Year as part of the “Utility Vehicle of the Year” category. Now, as the race gets tighter, the all-new electric crossover has made it to the semifinals for the annual award.

The Utility Vehicle segment was narrowed from 30 competitors to just 13 in the semifinals, meaning the Cadillac Lyriq will be competing against vehicles like the Audi Q4 e-Tron, Genesis GV60, Honda CR-V, Kia EV6, Mazda CX-50, Rivian R1S and many more. The Utility Vehicle bracket is again the largest of the three NACTOY categories, as three trucks and 10 cars also receive awards in their respective segments.

The NACTOY Awards are held annually, and eligible candidates are selected by a panel of 50 judges from various print, online, radio, and broadcast media outlets across the US and Canada. Each judge is from a different publication or media outlet, allowing for a diversity of opinions when judging eligible vehicles.

The new Cadillac Lyriq battery electric has proven to be quite popular so far. Orders for the first unit produced, known as the Lyriq Debut Edition model, sold out in less than 10 minutes, when the reservation bank opened last year. Recently, the order book for the next 2023 model year vehicle opened on May 19th and also fills up rather quickly. Interested parties can now sign up for the waiting list by placing a fully refundable $100 deposit for the 2024 model.

Finalists for the NACTOY award will be announced on November 16thth2022, and the winner will be chosen on January 11thth2023.
