The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq features the hardware necessary to facilitate both Super Cruise and HD Surround Vision. As previously reported by Cadillac Society, these features were not functional at the start of 2023 Lyriq production, meaning that a software update would be necessary to activate said technologies. It seems that some of the earliest-built units of the 2023 Lyriq are experiencing difficulties with the activation process, prompting the luxury marque to release a secondary fix to address the issue.
Cadillac Society has learned that certain units of the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will require an Image Processing Control Module replacement in order to activate Super Cruise (production code UXL) along with HD Surround Vision (production code UXP). This will be performed via a Customer Satisfaction Program N222392961 that will run through May 31st, 2025.
As a reminder, both Super Cruise and HD Surround Vision were standard on the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition, which represented the first examples of the all-new luxury electric crossover. Both technologies were also standard on the non-Debut Edition Lyriq Luxury RWD and Lyriq Luxury AWD. However, these features were not active when the Lyriq was delivered, and affected units were tagged with production codes R6I and R6X.
Looking ahead, all units of the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Luxury and Sport trims will feature HD Surround Vision as standard, while the base Tech trim will not have the feature. Super Cruise, meanwhile, will be standard on the 2024 Lyriq Luxury 2, Luxury 3, Sport 2 and Sport 3 trim levels. It will not be offered on Tech, Luxury 1 or Sport 1 trims.
The Lyriq is underpinned by the BEV3 platform and is assembled at the Spring Hill plant in Tennessee for all markets except for China. It is currently offered with two powertrain options. The base single-motor setup features one Ultium motor mounted on the rear axle, lending 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque for an estimated 312 miles of driving range. The second is an AWD setup that adds a motor to the front axle, resulting in 500 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. The forthcoming Lyriq-V will squeeze a few more horses from this same setup.
