2027 Cadillac Lyriq Engine, Pictures, MPG  –  Though it offers the most encouraging glimpse of Cadillac’s future to date, the 2027 Lyriq pays tribute to the most illustrious luxury cars the brand has ever made with its on-road manner. While some rivals have prioritized quick acceleration and agile handling, the Lyriq is happy to just waft. We think this is something that brand loyalists will love as they ditch their old SRX crossovers and DTS sedans for something greener. The point is, it’s not even wearing a Blackwing badge. Sharing its technology with the formidable GMC Hummer electric pickup truck, the Lyriq is powered by General Motors’ Ultium scalable battery design. Having said that, the two cars are polar opposites.  2027 Cadillac Lyriq Engine

Exterior and Interior

The elegant and opulent interior of the Lyriq exudes an air of refinement. The center console and door panels feature metallic brightwork set against open-pore wood. On the floor between the driver and front passenger is a massive storage tray lined with bright blue leather upholstery, adding a playful pop of color. Although the concept car had a more traditional layout with five seats, a center console that divided the front and back seats, and a touchscreen for the backseat passengers, the production Lyriq has a bench seat in the back, which is more practical.

The Lyriq uses state-of-the-art noise canceling technology to further reduce the influence of road noise, but it’s also true that not having a gasoline engine helps create a quiet cabin. Cadillac has neglected to incorporate any storage space under the hood of the vehicle, and while the inside is roomy, the cargo capacity is not as large as in other SUVs.   2027 Cadillac Lyriq Engine2027 Cadillac Lyriq Interior

2027 Cadillac Lyriq Specs

The Lyriq was the first of a series of electric vehicles powered by General Motors’ revolutionary Ultium battery technology. According to reports, the largest size of the batteries is reserved for large electric vehicle pickup trucks like the GMC Hummer EV SUT, but the scalable technology allows the car maker to produce batteries ranging in size from 50 to 200 kWh. Depending on the arrangement, the Lyriq’s 102.0 kWh battery can provide an estimated 308 miles for the single-motor model and 307 miles for the dual-motor version of the vehicle’s driving range per charge. The rear-wheel drive Lyriq reached 270 miles on our highway range test before requiring a battery recharge. In contrast, the all-wheel-drive model barely made it 220 miles in the identical trial. When it comes to charging, the Lyriq supports both standard DC fast charging and household power outlets. All models also come with the option to charge via direct current (DC) fast charging.  2027 Cadillac Lyriq Engine2027 Cadillac Lyriq Price

Engine and Performance

The base model of the Lyriq is a rear-wheel-drive vehicle with an electric motor 340 horsepower installed on the back axle. With this base model, the Lyriq has adequate acceleration and is quick, but it lacks the powerful feeling of rival SUVs like the BMW iX and the Tesla Model X. The rear-wheel-drive Lyriq took 5.7 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph on our test course. This is slower than electric vehicle competitors, but still respectable for mid-size SUVs. A 500-horsepower all-wheel-drive powertrain is available as an option; it entails mounting a second motor up front to turn the wheels.  2027 Cadillac Lyriq Engine2027 Cadillac Lyriq Engine

It took the all-wheel-drive Lyriq 4.6 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour on the test course. The Lyriq’s lack of refinement on the road will disappoint those who love to cruise. Although it has competent and sturdy handling, the Lyriq isn’t very fun when you put it through its paces. The steering wheel and brake pedal are heavy, but they lack tactile feedback. When you turn the wheel, it feels just right. The good news is that you can drive with just one pedal thanks to Cadillac’s robust regenerative braking technology. In most everyday driving scenarios, the driver will not need to press the brake pedal because the vehicle will slow down quickly enough when the accelerator pedal is pulled off. Flat pavement makes for a smooth ride, but those who prefer softer suspensions may find the suspension too harsh for rougher routes.

2027 Cadillac Lyriq Fuel Economy

The EPA estimates that the rear-wheel-drive Lyriq gets 92 MPG in the city and 82 MPG on the highway. When all-wheel drive is engaged, both of those numbers drop by one MPGequivalent. In mixed-use conditions, the rear-wheel-drive vehicle managed 72 MPGe and the all-wheel-drive version 77 MPGe. Even though our hands were really unsteady, we managed it.  2027 Cadillac Lyriq Engine

2027 Cadillac Lyriq Safety Features

Driver assistance features are included on the Cadillac Lyriq, but the Super Cruise system, which allows for hands-free driving, is only accessible to subscribers. If you would want to learn more about the outcomes of the Lyriq crash testing, you can do so by visiting the websites of the NAHTSA and the IIHS. Important safety features that are likely to be present are:

  • A typical autonomous emergency braking system that can identify pedestrians
  • A basic lane departure warning system with lane maintaining assist
  • With the built-in adaptive cruise control, you can drive hands-free for longer periods of time.  2027 Cadillac Lyriq Engine

2027 Cadillac Lyriq Price and Update Plan

Depending on the trim level and options chosen, a 2027 Cadillac Lyriq might cost anywhere from $58,590 to $63,190. With a fixed glass roof, 20-inch wheels, faux leather upholstery, a 33.0 inch curved digital dashboard display, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a base price for the Lyriq that includes one motor is the Tech trim.

We advise going for the middle-of-the-road Luxury trim if you want ambient interior lighting that you can personalize, wood interior trim, heated seats and steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, and access to a plethora of other desirable options like Cadillac’s Super Cruise hands-free driving system. Our second top pick is the 500-horsepower Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive variant, which can haul up to 3,500 pounds.  2027 Cadillac Lyriq Engine
