2024 Cadillac Lyriq: Here’s The New Celestial Metallic Color

The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq adds five new exterior colors to its palette: Nimbus Metallic, Emerald Lake Metallic, Argent Silver Metallic, Radiant Red Tintcoat, and Celestial Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Celestial hue.

Assigned production code GJY and touch-up paint code WA-127J, Celestial Metallic is one of eight exterior colors offered on the all-electric luxury crossover, which include:

  • Crystal White Tricoat
  • Stellar Black Metallic
  • Opulent Blue Metallic
  • Argent Silver Metallic (new for 2024)
  • Radiant Red Tintcoat (new for 2024)
  • Celestial Metallic (new for 2024)
  • Nimbus Metallic (new for 2024)
  • Emerald Lake Metallic (new for 2024)

The Celestial Metallic color color is an extra-cost item that adds an additional $625 to the crossover’s price. It is available on all trim levels, with the option to add a Black roof on the top equipment groups of both the Luxury (1SE) and Sport (1SK) trim levels. Additionally, the color can be combined with all five interior colorways:

  • Noir (Tech)
  • Noir with Santorini Blue accents (Luxury and Sport)
  • Sky Cool Gray with Santorini Blue accents (Luxury and Sport)
  • Oxford Stone with Garnet accents (Luxury 1SE and Sport 1SK)
  • Juniper with Sky Cool Gray accents (Luxury 1SE and Sport 1SK)

Introduced for the 2023 model year, the Cadillac Lyriq stands as the luxury marque’s first entry into the budding EV market. The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq arrives with several important changes and updates. Among these is the introduction of a revised trim level lineup over its 2023 model year predecessor, adding a new entry level trim called Tech. The Luxury and new Sport trim levels slot in above it within the revised Cadillac Y-trim level structure.

While the base Lyriq Tech trim features only one equipment level (1SA), the Luxury and Sport trims offer equipment groups numbered 1, 2 and 3, with each ascending numerical figure representing a better-equipped model.  All three trims are offered in either rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive.

Additionally, the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq will adopt 5G network connectivity as standard on all trim levels. The 2024 Lyriq also gets a new power panoramic dual-panel sunroof along with a newly available Nappa Leather seating package, which is genuine leather made from calfskin or other types of soft cowhide.

Regardless of the trim level selected, 2024 Lyriq driving range is estimated at 308 miles for rear-wheel drive models, with motor output set at 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, and 307 miles for all-wheel drive models, with motor output set at 500 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque.

The crossover is assembled at the Cadillac Spring Hill plant in Tennessee for all markets except for China. Production of the 2024 model will commence in late March 2023 at the same facility.

  2. I am neither a marketer nor an artist/color specialist, but I have to smile at the work done by GM to develop and name the colors it paints its vehicles. In 2011 I wanted to experience the hybrid plug in electric sort of car I hadn’t ever had so I bought the new Volt. The vehicle I selected was a pleasant greenish silver. It was called Veridian Jewel. What did that mean?To me, the name meant nothing. Without seeing the car that could have been a name for white, black, or orange. GM is at it again. I have a Lyriq on order and from what I considered to be a poor selection of colors, I chose Celestial. To me, Celestial is a reference to outer space, not to paint or color. I generally like the trip-coat white paint, but it just didn’t speak to me in the Lyriq. Other than that the colors are ‘strange’. Yes, there is a white and a black (I already have a black Cadillac). I thought maybe a nice blue would be a good addition to the fleet. When I said that to the salesperson he took me outside to see Opulent Blue on a different car. He called it ‘in your face blue’, and I did think it was pretty strident. Where was light blue or navy blue? Light blue came out as Nimbus (which I thought was the name of a white cloud, but this Nimbus is not white and doesn’t look very metallic-no sale). We don’t currently have a silver vehicle, so that was a possibility (and bonus, Lyriq’s silver is its only no extra cost paint I believe). I was almost sold on Argent silver until I saw it. To my eye it is a dark gray. Nothing silver about it. Red? Have you seen GM’s extra cost red “tint coat” (another term I con’t know the meaning of). Lyriq’s red is eye searing red. I like red. I have a Porsche cabriolet in red that I favor, and another red little sport coupe so the too-bright red Cadillac offered was a no. “Celestial”? Almost sort of light purple. Didn’t get me excited, but since there was no silver and no navy and nothing else that ‘grabbed me’, I ordered Celestial. Maybe I will grow to love it. In the meantime my order and deposit was placed almost 11 months ago. I wish GM would concentrate less on coming up with strange names for weird colors and more on building the d-mn vehicles. I get emails about how nice it will be to drive an electric Cadillac, but no word as to where I am in the process or (even approximately) when I might get my vehicle. When the Ford people promised high performance Mustangs or the redone T-Birds at least they sent their waiting order holders trinkets/souvenirs to let them know they were not forgotten and were appreciated. From Cadillac? Crickets. Love ya Cadillac, I have two of your cars in my garage already, but you sure aren’t acting like the standard of the world.
