Welcome to Jim Ellis Cadillac!
As we move into the all-electric future of the auto industry, we are seeing a number of surprising vehicles designed to deliver an incredible driving experience while creating zero emissions. One of the leaders in this area is the 2024 Cadillac LYRIQ, an absolutely stunning piece of machinery that lives up to Cadillac’s reputation for bold power, gorgeous style, and exquisite luxury you cannot find anywhere else. With three different trim levels available, plus two motor setups, it is important to consider all of your options and choose the right combination with everything you need. That is why we are here to help you explore different trim levels available to you and ensure you drive away in a vehicle you will love.
For over a century, Cadillac has been well-known for making vehicles that combine impressive power, gorgeous styling, and sophisticated luxury. It should be no surprise, then, that the future of the Cadillac brand, though it might be going electric, will continue to deliver on everything we have come to expect. The 2024 LYRIQ is a terrific example of that, bringing robust electrified power with it to go along with its stunning style and incredible luxury. You have two options available to you when it comes to the motor system powering the LYRIQ, which gives you the freedom to get the kind of power you want.
The standard setup for the LYRIQ is a single motor system, with the motor on the rear axle to create electrified RWD performance. With this motor, the LYRIQ provides 340 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, with a beautifully balanced 50/50 weight distribution for the battery and power system. If you want a more energetic driving experience, you can choose a dual-motor system, which gives you eAWD performance and a pair of motors that deliver 500 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. Both setups deliver instant torque for truly exhilarating acceleration designed to put you back in your seat with a smile on your face. You cannot go wrong with either one, but we prefer the dual-motor configuration for its exceptional power and control on the road.
As electric vehicles have grown in popularity, many drivers are concerned about range and how easy it is to charge them; with the 2024 LYRIQ, there is no need to be worried. Going with the single-motor option gets you an estimated 314 miles of range from a full charge, while the two-motor setup gets an estimated 307 miles of total range. Charging the LYRIQ is easy since it supports Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 DC Fast Charging, which can get you more than 75 miles of range from a charge of about 10 minutes. (Using the Energy Assist feature in your myCadillac Mobile App, you will be able to view your current charge level—expressed as a percentage of a full charge or in terms of how many miles you can travel with your current charge—to locate charging stations and plan a route to the one of your choice.) With a Level 2 charging station installed at home, you can get up to 51 miles of range from about an hour charge on LYRIQ trim levels with 19.2 kW charging capability, making it easy to go everywhere you need.
If there is one thing Cadillac is well known for, it is designing vehicles with gorgeous interiors that are as stylish as they are functional. All you have to do is look at something like the legendary Escalade to see how well Cadillac understands aesthetically pleasing functionality. With the 2024 LYRIQ, we see this once again, thanks to a gorgeous interior that welcomes you each time you get behind the wheel. You will find two rows of seating inside the LYRIQ for up to five passengers, along with 28 cu.ft. of rear cargo space and more than 60 cu.ft. of total cargo volume inside with the rear seats folded.
With three different trims to choose from, the luxurious interior you get to enjoy will depend on which one you choose, but they are all opulent. The starting Tech trim features a massive 33-inch advanced color LED display with Google built-in, which dominates the front dashboard. This is joined by a seven-speaker sound system for remarkable audio, support for wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a wireless phone charger. You get comfortable Inteluxe seating in the Tech trim level, with heated front seats, power-adjustable seating with lumbar controls, and dual-zone automatic climate control to keep your passengers comfortable. Active noise cancellation measures road vibration and other driving-induced exterior noise, then uses the LYRIQ's advanced sound system to produce sound at a pitch to cancel it out. Google built-in gives you hands-free access to programs like Google Assistant and Google Maps to check on weather and traffic conditions and more.
There are three versions of the Sport trim available, with the Sport 3 delivering an absolutely incredible experience. The Sport 3 comes with a 19-speaker AKG Studio sound system that delivers unbelievable audio to everyone inside the LYRIQ, along with perforated seating that features heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear seats. You also get tri-zone automatic climate control in the Sport 3, along with ambient interior lighting that you can customize to create a unique driving experience that is truly your own.
Whether you are interested in an electrified driving experience or a more conventional one, nothing is more important than how well your vehicle helps keep you safe. That is why we love seeing the standard Cadillac Smart System in every 2024 LYRIQ trim, giving you incredible driver assistance technology no matter what else you want in your next ride. This suite of advanced systems includes a Forward Collision Alert with Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking to help you avoid a crash, Reverse Automatic Braking for greater functionality, and Front and Rear Park Assist to make parking easier. You also get Blind Zone Steering Assist to help you avoid a potential collision with a vehicle hiding in your blind spot.
The LYRIQ even features an LED Reflective Windshield Collision Alert that provides a flashing red collision alert on the windshield to warn you if a front collision threat is detected. If you are interested in improving the safety of your vehicle, then the available Driver Assist package upgrades what you get to keep you even more secure on the road. This package includes a number of terrific features, such as Adaptive Cruise Control that helps maintain a safe distance between you and other vehicles automatically, as well as a Rear Pedestrian Alert while you are backing up. You also get an HD Surround Vision system with this package, which gives you a virtual 360-degree view around the LYRIQ during low-speed maneuvering for greater safety.
Finally, GM’s incredible Super Cruise technology is also available for the 2024 LYRIQ, taking safety technology to the next level. With Super Cruise, you get hands-free semi-autonomous driving available on more than 400,000 miles of compatible roads across the US and Canada. This gives you an experience far beyond what most vehicles can deliver, allowing you to enjoy the drive in a way that few other drivers can hope for. This is one more way that GM and Cadillac continue to innovate and change what we expect from a vehicle, giving you a stunning SUV designed to keep you safe today, tomorrow, and many years to come.
