GM has added the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq as the second model year for the electric crossover. The original Lyriq was the 2023 edition, of which just 122 units were delivered last year. GM is hoping to build on that this year by also adding a new Tech trim level.
The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Tech is the new entry-level trim of the lineup, below the Luxury trim level. It is also below the newly added Sport trim level. This brings the number of trims to three, i.e., Tech, Luxury, and Sport, according to GM Authority.
All the trims will be available in North America, and buyers can choose between rear-wheel and all-wheel drive for each.
The Tech trim will offer the Driver Assist Package as optional, but the other two trims will have it as standard. The package contains Adaptive Cruise Control, HD Surround Vision Camera, Rear Pedestrian Alert, Side Bicyclist Alert, Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist, Outside heated, power-adjustable, power-folding mirrors with driver-side auto-dimming, integrated turn signal indicators and puddle lamps, Intersection Automatic Emergency Braking, and Digital Key. The last two are offered for the first time in the 2024 model year.
The Lyriq Tech trim will also have the Noir interior colorway with two-tone upper bolster accents in aluminum trim. Prices start at about $60,000 USD. Shipping recently resumed after some quality issue fixes, including some for the touchscreen.
GM is petitioning the US Treasury to reclassify the Lyriq to qualify for the new tax credits. The automaker delivered just 122 units of the Lyriq last year amid quality issues with the electric crossover. Shipping resumed last month after those issues were fixed.
