The 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited offers reduced availability of the digital climate control display, GM Authority has learned.
Currently, 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited LT, RST and LT Trail Boss models are equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control (RPO code CJ2). These models will lose the digital temperature displays located on the Climate Control Knobs.
Affected models will be tagged with RPO code 00D, Not Equipped with Climate Control Knob Digital Temperature Display. At the moment, there are no photos of the revised knobs.
Meanwhile, 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited LTZ and High Country trim levels will continue to include the digital temperature displays. To note, 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited WT, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss models are equipped with single-zone manual, semi-automatic air conditioning (RPO code C4P).
It is currently unclear if this feature change for the 2022 Chevy Silverado Limited is temporary, or if it will last throughout the entirety of the 2022 model year for the stop-gap Silverado 1500 Limited. The exact reason for the feature change is unknown, but it is possible that it is related to the ongoing global microchip shortage, which has affected production and feature availability for the entirety of the automotive industry.
As a reminder the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited is meant to bridge the pre-update 2021 model year Chevy Silverado 1500 with the refreshed Chevy Silverado 1500, the latter of which is not slated to arrive until late in the 2022 model year, or possibly the 2023 model year.
Production of the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited begins in the second half of September of the 2021 calendar year, as GM Authority reported previously. Production will initially kick off at the GM Silao plant in Mexico on September 20th, while production at the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana will begin September 27th. Order books for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited are now open.
