Well who knows , it could turn out for the good. Cadillac could honor the May orders pricing with similarly equipped 2024 but with door handles better, HUD available etc. Since they may start as early as Feb folks could have 2024s in their driveway by March.

Yes the glass is half full 馃構
I hope so, I am pretty confident I will get bumped to a '24.

I'm at least the second order of my exact AWD configuration (one is on the tracker here and dealer said "that's been a popular configuration today") in one of the 10 least populous state which has at least 3 Cadillac dealers.

I would hazard a guess that all 2023 orders that are not specced with only the options that were available for Debut Editions are the ones that will be converted to 2024 orders (E.g.: 2023 AWD and 2023 orders with exterior colors other than Satin Steel or Black).

So if we have basically ordered a "DE" in May, we should get a 2023.
Yeah, I think that may be reality also. But it conflicts with the statement that they are starting AWD production in December this year.

Could always change. It's what works today. Tomorrow could be a different story.

I was with a VW dealer few years back. The front bumper cover for Atlas / Tiguan faced a major challenge. A freaking volcano erupted and destroyed the manufacturing facility that was nearby for those parts. A new supplier was needed immediately. VW found one. Could not sell those vehicles until those cars were re-crashed and tested / certified. Unbelievable things happen. Never know what might happen tomorrow.

If MY24 starts in Feb, seems like they would have finalized spec/feature/price changes. Know if they plan to announce any of it soon? Seems awfully close between DE deliveries to '24 deliveries. I'm hoping that doesn't mean there are significant fixes/improvements between the two that DE's miss. It would almost seem foolhardy to take delivery of a DE in Jan (which seems to be the general target date) if the next model year is available just a few weeks later.

"A few weeks later" would turn into like a year at this point with how reservations are stacked up. Up for another wait?
At this point, whatever my DE turns out to be will be welcomed with wide open arms and become an instant member of the family.

I mean it could be true. They could be building AWD Satin grey Lyriqs that are basically DEs/RWDs with an extra motor... in limited numbers.
Definitely not a DE with a AWD powertrain and so many other option changes (though mostly deletes) for the AWD offering. But I have to think them building AWD's in December is old info. Or it is just like how they started Lyriq production in 'March' of this year 'ahead of schedule' - which meant nothing to actual people due to receive cars.

You鈥檝e heard of vapor ware in the software world. We need a similar term for this car I fear.

So if a majority of 2023 reservations roll over to 2024 MY, will they be given any priority? Or will we still have to await the coveted allocation? I鈥檓 sure no one knows but this could really get out of hand.

Ok, I must have skipped a chapter. What鈥檚 the significance of a black roof. Isn鈥檛 it supposed to be glass?
It is all glass but these demo vehicles were running two different paint schemes.

As @Lockhart Cadillac said, some of the preproduction press units had blacked out a pillars and roofs, which isn't a production offering at this point. Personally, not a fan, but a lot of folks like it.

Assuming the 23 DE is still at $60k, switching to 24 anything will be (a lot?) more. You then have to ask yourself if the model year is worth that much to you.

If you're leasing, knowing the residual for each of the two alternatives up front eliminates the uncertainty about how much you'll have paid overall for a 24 instead of a 23 when you return it at lease end. You can then ask yourself what that extra money is getting you besides bragging rights.

If you're buying, it's more of a crap shoot as to what the market will be offering for a 23 vs. a 24 when you sell.

And if buying, there's also the calculation the next buyer will make when comparing a 23 with 36,000 miles and a 24 with the same mileage. The 23 may somehow seem less used despite no difference in miles. Not that I have any idea how KBB makes that calculation.
