More Cadillac Models Get Limited Park Assist Availability6
Back in December, GM Authority reported that a selection of Cadillac crossovers would offer limited availability of the Rear Park Assist feature and Front and Rear Park Assist feature. Now, GM Authority has learned that additional Cadillac models will have limited availability for these two features.
As was the case previously, the limited availability of these two parking assist features is a result of the ongoing global microchip shortage. It is uncertain at this time if the features will be available for retrofitting in the future, as was the case for models affected by the limited availability of heated steering wheels and heated seats. It’s also unclear if affected models will include a credit for buyers.
First on the list affected models is the Cadillac CT4. Starting with vehicles produced on or after January 24th, some units of the 2022 Cadillac CT4 will be built without Rear Park Assist (RPO code UD7) and Front and Rear Park Assist (RPO code UD5). Rear Park Assist is typically standard on the CT4 Luxury trim level, while Front and Rear Park Assist is typically standard on Premium Luxury, Sport, CT4-V, and CT4-V Blackwing models.
Next is the Cadillac CT5. Starting with vehicles produced on or after January 24th, some units of the 2022 Cadillac CT5 will be built without Rear Park Assist and Front and Rear Park Assist. Rear Park Assist is typically standard on the CT5 Luxury trim level, while Front and Rear Park Assist is typically standard on Premium Luxury, Sport, CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing.
Finally, the Cadillac Escalade luxury SUV has also been affected by limited availability of these two parking features. Starting with vehicles produced on or after January 24th, some units of the 2022 Cadillac Escalade and Cadillac Escalade ESV will be built without Front and Rear Park Assist. Front and Rear Park Assist is typically standard on the Luxury trim level, while Premium Luxury and Sport trims are equipped with Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist (RPO code UKZ) due to the inclusion of GM Super Cruise as standard, which is unaffected by the limited availability of the parking assist feature.
Check out the table below for a full breakdown of the availability of these parking assist features for Cadillac vehicles:

starting to wonder how long this “stripping down” of GM vehicles will last…..spending big bucks for a vehicle that is missing items that make spending big bucks worth while has me thinking that I will wait a year or two or look for another manufacturer for a replacement vehicle…..for my money I would not purchase a vehicle with the “promise” that 6 months or so from now GM will update items (heated steering wheel or heated seats)….don’t trust that will ever happen, and you have NO recourse….just bad business
I am waiting to CT4 with Super Cruise since April 2021 and it is is not available. Tesla gets all the chips they need without a problem. So poor Mary Barra should be sent to a Tesla school, where teacher Elon Musk would teach her how to get her chips.
I Refuse to order my truck until GM stops the “settle for less” theme. I will not pay for less! I’ll continue to drive my 2009 Avalanche until I get “what I want”.
I had planned to by an XT6 but not with all the amenities missing – we get lots of snow in upstate NY so a heated steering wheel and heated seats are a must on a luxury vehicle. Now with parking assist eliminated I will begin to research other vehicles such as the Lexus. While other manufacturers been affected GM seems to be the only manufacturer most affected by this chip shortage. I am not spending $60k+ and get a built “shy” Caddy – built shy = good bye!
Chevrolet Silverado LD Crew RST/LT-T1 and the sales person told me that my truck would get the heated seats microchip. I called this morning and was informed that GM is recalling certain makes and my truck wasn’t on the list. I don’t understand how the truck was sold with the heated seats capability with no microchip for it.
Very disappointed with Cadillac. No chip for front parking assist in march 2023 for vehicle purchased in June 2022. After repeated contacts to GM, no closer to a solution!!
