General Motors’ flagship brand is continuing to grow its electric-vehicle lineup with the launch of the 2026 Cadillac Vistiq. Based on its size and three rows of seats, it looks like this SUV will slot between the Lyriq and Escalade IQ in size and likely price. Think of Vistiq as the electric equivalent of the brand’s gas-powered XT6 SUV.

Aside from the name and images of what appear to be a near-production-ready prototype, nothing else is known about the Vistiq. We can comment on the design, which appears to be a blend of elements found on Lyriq and Escalade IQ. The front end looks inspired by the former while the back side takes more than a few cues from the latter.

As for what’s under the hood, we can only surmise that Vistiq will use the latest iteration of GM’s Ultium battery tech. Further, expect the company’s excellent Super Cruise autonomous driving system to be available as standard or optional depending on trim level. A full suite of high-end safety and convenience features should also be available, though this vehicle should be the next one in the company’s product stack to not offer Apple CarPlay support, instead relying on Google Built-In services.

As far as pricing, again, Vistiq should slot right in between the Lyriq and Escalade IQ. Cadillac hasn’t announced what the latter will cost, but rumors suggest a starting figure of about $130,000. The Lyriq’s point of entry is just below $60,000. As such, we predict Vistiq’s base price should be about $80,000 with loaded versions topping out a bit less than $110,000. Production likely won’t start until early 2025.

CG Says:

Cadillac continued to expand its electric vehicle portfolio today with confirmation of the VISTIQ. Slotted between LYRIQ and ESCALADE IQ, VISTIQ is a distinctive and innovative luxury three-row SUV, designed for the modern family.
