Lincoln Rival Cadillac Will Not Offer Plug-In Hybrids

With demand for EVs waning, many automakers have since pivoted away from full electrification, instead opting to fill in the gap with hybrids and plug-in hybrids. In that sense, Lincoln already has one PHEV in its lineup – the Corsair Grand Touring – even after the Aviator Grand Touring has at least temporarily exited the lineup as part of its 2025 model year refresh. However, it doesn’t seem as if Lincoln’s cross-town rival, Cadillac, will follow suit.

This news comes to us from GM Authority, which recently reported that Cadillac will continue to focus on pure ICE models and full-blown EVs only moving forward. While these plans could still change, Cadillac is instead focused on its eventual transition to full electrification, citing the fact that its own data indicates that 60 percent of luxury vehicle shoppers are considering an EV as their next new vehicle purchase.

Previously, Cadillac intended to go all-electric across its entire lineup by 2030, but as Ford Authority reported earlier this month, GM’s luxury brand has since opted to scrap that plan and instead focus on “luxury of choice,” giving its customers multiple powertrain options. Interestingly, that seemingly won’t include PHEVs, even though GM recently announced that it will add plug-in hybrid options to some of its other North American brands at some point prior to 2027.

Meanwhile, Ford has also softened its own electrification plans amid falling demand, with Lincoln President Dianne Craig recently revealing that the luxury brand isn’t currently focused on going all-in on EVs, either. Additionally, Ford pushed back the planned production start dates for a pair of its own future EVs as it continues to expand its hybrid offerings – which could soon include the Lincoln Navigator, a direct rival to the Cadillac Escalade.

    We were down to two choices for our future ride. The 2024 Cadillac or the 2024 Nautilus. The Cad was a beautiful red, right up my alley. However, I wasn’t very impressed with the button on the stick shift, concerned there would be future problems with that. So we are going with the Nautilus hoping it gets here before the year is over. If we don’t care for the turbo hybrid, we will go right back to the ICE engine.

      Wise choice it’s an excellent luxury SUV & highly rated. My neighbor just bought new ’24 Nautilus hybrid AWD an raving bout it. He previously had an Audi . Caddys are nice too but i think the Lincolns are better built. 💯

      You were correct in saying ICE.

    GM 2027 hybrid? I might be dead by then. People are having problems with the new XT4, XT5 is old design. If you like the Lincoln go for it.
