The planned production start date of the 2022 model year full-size GM SUVs has been revealed.
While many GM plants have experienced shutdowns and production delays due to the global chip shortage this year, Arlington, which builds only full-size GM SUVs, has mostly been spared due to the high popularity and strong profit margins of the products it produces.
A number of small changes and updates have been applied to the 2022MY full-size GM SUVs. Let’s start with the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, which will introduce a new Sport Performance Package, a new Off Road Performance Package, five new alloy wheel options, three new available exterior colors, a standard buckle-to-drive feature, a new available 12-inch digital driver information center, a new available electronic limited slip differential and expanded availability for the 6.2L L87 V8 engine.
Meanwhile, changes for the 2022 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL include the addition of a new Denali Performance Black Package, standard lane keep assist with lane departure warning, five new alloy wheel options, expanded availability for the 6.2L L87 V8 engine on AT4 trim level models and a new standard 12-inch driver information center. Two exterior colors, Dark Sky Metallic and Smokey Quartz Metallic, will also be discontinued.
Finally, there’s the 2022 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV. The 2022MY Escalade will receive more standard active safety features from Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels, a renamed Touring Package, a new Buckle to Drive feature, and three new exterior paint colors. The Near Field Communication phone pairing feature will also be dropped from the vehicle as it is considered outdated.
