And if it works out as well as the Ford Bronco rollout you will be lucky to get one by 2025.

BTW, where in the world did GM come up with the name "Lyriq"? And does it even have a meaning? Makes one wonder. :)
Read on:

"Cadillac announced late last year that it would revert back to real model names and slowly phase out the current alphanumeric nomenclature over the next little while. The first vehicle to arrive under this new naming convention will be the Cadillac Lyriq EV. Lyriq is a brand new name for Cadillac, so many fans may be wondering how General Motors came up with it and what its origins are.

We were also wondering what was behind the Cadillac Lyriq nameplate, so we asked Cadillac’s head of global brand strategy, Phil Dauchy, to shed some light on the matter. Dauchy told GM Authority executive editor, Alex Luft, that the Lyriq name is part of a new Cadillac naming structure that will see all vehicle names end in “iq.” These “iq” names will replace the CT# and XT# nomenclature used on current cars and crossovers powered by internal combustion engines and are intended to signal a change of course at Cadillac – that being from ICE to EV.

As for how Cadillac came up with Lyriq specifically, Dauchy explained that the name is a nod to the fact that Cadillac is the most mentioned brand in songs. No other brand (not just automotive brands) is mentioned in more songs than Cadillac."

Thanks brother. But, GM is going to have to make sure people know how to pronounce it. :)
And although not spelled the same, but it is pronounced the same as the Cadillac "iq" but has a very different meaning from what GM has intended :eek:




I don't know that I would like a car with "iq" (ick) in its name ;)
