Hey friends, it's time to explorer the future, that is the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq. This is our first opportunity to explore the Lyriq, spelled l-y-r-i-q, but before we go crawling around it, here are some quick stats.
The Cadillac Lyriq is a pure electric suv kind of thing, with a 100 kilowatt hour battery pack, rear-wheel drive, roughly 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet⁽¹⁾ of torque. And according to Cadillac, a range in excess of 300 miles.
All right, that's enough stats, let's get inside, first things first though, I have to explain they don't want my jeans to stay in the seat, so i've got this Cadillac towel here.
I don't want to be the guy that ruins the Lyriq, okay, so as I sit inside here, before I talk about space, I should point out that it's not on right now, but this 33 inch curved screen is standard and boy⁽²⁾ that is really impressive.
I also really like the kind of textural qualities, as we peek around here that's really nice, this isn't quite up to production spec, but you've got the Cadillac crest here.
It all looks really really nice, so I can't adjust the seat but plenty of head space, in fact you got the headroom sort of cut out here because of the glass roof which is nice.
I'm going to now sit behind myself, and see how the experience works oh check this out, okay, I don't want to break it. But when you open the door this looks like a door handle like it would pop out, you actually just push it, and then the door pops right open.
So let me get the official Cadillac branded towel, it's like when you take your dog to the beach, okay, there we go.
So much space! granted the front seats a little bit further forward than I would normally sit, but you've got this flat floor down here, and this expansive view, yeah. If I didn't have control issues, I would happily sit back here for an extended period of time.
I'll add that cargo space is a decent 28 cubic feet, I really dig this laser etched pattern through the wood with the metal behind.
And I like how Cadillac has incorporated splashes of color and textural interest throughout the cabin.
