The Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban both received an all-new generational overhaul for the 2021 model year, with the 2022 model year introducing just a hand full of changes and updates. Unfortunately, GM Authority has learned that the power-sliding console for both the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban is currently unavailable to order.
For those readers who may be unaware, the power-sliding center console offers multiple positions and configurations for added comfort and practicality, sliding forward and backwards up to 10 inches. Tagged with RPO code DCH, the full name of the feature is power-sliding center floor console with drawer, secure storage, manual sliding armrest and cup holders for second row.
It’s currently unclear if the feature unavailability is a result of the ongoing global microchip shortage, or if it’s simply due to supplier constraint.
The power-sliding console is typically optional for Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban LT, RST and Z71 trim levels. The power-sliding console is priced at $350, but requires the Luxury Package (RPO code WPL, $2,525) and power-release second row bucket seats (RPO code ATN, $370). The power-sliding console is also typically standard on Premier and High Country trim levels, but is replaced by the conventional Floor console with storage area and removable storage tray (RPO code D07) when ordered with second row power 60/40 split-folding bench seats (RPO code ATT) rather than the standard second-row bucket seats (RPO code ATN).
For the moment, 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban Premier and High Country trim levels will receive the Floor console with storage area and removable storage tray, which means a $350 credit on the price of the vehicle in lieu of the power-sliding center floor console with drawer, secure storage, manual sliding armrest and cup holders.
As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban are offered with three engine options, including the atmospheric 5.3L V8 L84, atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87, and 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. Under the skin is the GM T1 platform, with production taking place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
