I'm a Cadillac fan. My wife drove an Escalade and I moved her down to the X5 as her health deteriorated. Both great for us.

I always had great buying, ownership and service experiences. I won't plug the dealership, but they're in Tempe, AZ.

I would buy an EV Cadillac EXT in a heartbeat and very seriously consider an EV Escalade before the R1S. But that's just me.
I also am a cadillac lover and currently have a 2011 ext. I was so sad when they discontinued it.. I would get an ev ext in a heartbeat!

It’ll definitely be 100K+.
the Lyric will be the still pricey more affordable Cadillac EV and still pricey itself.

I would not have put a deposit down had I known there was going to be an indefinite wait or no 400 mile range SUV. I am really dissapointed and will pull my reservation if they don't have a concrete timeline for a 400 mile range R1s. IMO it is a huge design flaw that they could have made the R1s the same length as the truck and had a 3rd row and 400 mile range. Range is the most important variable in an EV particularly something that is supposed to go way out into the wilderness.

Look on the bright side Rob: you could have put down a deposit on the 400+ mile Escalade that according to this thread started two years ago will be materializing at any moment. Range has been discussed ad nauseum here and many, myself included, feel that 300+ is more than sufficient. If that doesn't meet your specific needs or you can't wait for the 400+ R1S that is apparently still hopefully coming, your deposit is completely and easily refundable.

They've already stated the R1S will not be offered with the Max pack and 400+ miles of range.
They will at some point (after launch) offer a longer range version than the large pack, but it will be less than 400.
If a 400+ mile 3 row SUV is what you must have, you likely have at least a few years to wait. Rivian may find a way to make it work, but right now they say that is not a product they will be offering.
Basically their concrete timeline for a 400+ mile R1S is "never" (subject to change).
