See how the design of both the Chevy Blazer EV and Cadillac Lyriq compare here.
GM is stepping up its all-electric vehicle offerings with plans to release 30 new EV models by the 2025 calendar year. Included in this deluge of battery-powered vehicles is the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV and 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, and now, we’re taking a closer look at how these two crossovers compare with regard to exterior dimensions.

Although the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV and 2023 Cadillac Lyriq occupy completely different segments (mainstream versus luxury, respectively), there are still quite a few similarities between them with regard to underpinnings and powertrain. For example, both vehicles ride on the GM BEV3 platform, and both equip GM’s Ultium battery tech paired with GM’s Ultium drive motor tech. What’s more, the exterior dimensions are also similar.

With that, how do these two models compare with regard to exterior styling? Starting in front, we find a broad, rectangular nose section, with both crossovers incorporating a mix of horizontal lines (primarily for the top and bottom leading edges) as well as vertical lines (primarily along the sides of the fascia). The inner grille section, however, is quite different, with the Chevy Blazer EV incorporating a mix of broad, geometric lines, and the Cadillac Lyriq incorporating a unique design with thin, light-up styling lines.

Moving over the the profile, we find relatively similar silhouettes, with a long, low stance that seems to hunch over large alloy wheels in the corners. The dash to axle-ratio is also similar, as are the general proportions.

However, the closer we look, the more differences we can point out – the roofline, for example, falls away at a steep angle in the rear hatch of the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV, while the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq incorporates a more gradual slope that creates a more rounded appearance. The Lyriq also appears to have a longer rear overhang than the Blazer EV. The midline is also a point of departure, with the Blazer EV incorporating a curved midline that swoops up and over the rear fenders, and the Lyriq incorporating a straight, more streamlined midline.

Finally, in back, we see the Chevy Blazer EV once again incorporating a more technical, geometric look, with a chunky rear bumper section and angular upper hatch spoiler, as compared to the smoothed-out hatch of the Cadillac Lyriq.

Despite the similarities, these two vehicles definitely have a unique look all their own, with the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV offering a more aggressive, angular aesthetic, and the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq offering a more streamlined and refined aesthetic.
