2024 Cadillac Lyriq Lineup Expands to Include Tech and Sport Trims

After making its debut with a single Luxury trim, the Lyriq lineup is expanding by two for the 2024 model year.

A new Tech trim slots beneath the Lyriq Luxury and represents the entry point to the lineup for the 2024 model year. Standard features include a 33.0-inch infotainment screen, the Cadillac Smart System suite of safety and assistance tech, Google built-in, wireless phone charging, one-pedal driving, and 20-inch wheels.

The new-for-2024 Lyriq Sport builds on the Luxury trim's standard and available features with Obsidian chrome accents, a unique grille treatment with integrated illumination, and body-color door handles. The Lyriq Sport rolls on standard 20-inch wheels, with midnight-finished 22s available for an extra charge.

In addition to more trim options, 2024 Lyriq shoppers will also be able to select from an extended pallet of exterior colors.

Last year's Stellar Black Metallic paint option is joined by Argent Silver, Radiant Red Tintcoat, Celestial Metallic, Emerald Lake Metallic, Nimbus Metallic, Opulent Blue Metallic, and Crystal White Tricoat. Satin Steel Metallic has been discontinued for 2024.

Newly available upgrades for Lyriq Luxury and Sport buyers include nappa leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated rear outboard seats, and a power-opening panoramic moonroof with an electric sunshade.
