Late last month, GM Authority covered the news that a handful of Chevy models would offer limited availability of certain park assist features. Now, GM Authority has learned about additional Chevy models impacted by limited availability of the Rear Park Assist feature.
The limited availability of this feature is the result of the ongoing global microchip shortage. At this time, it’s unclear whether the feature will be available for retrofit later, as is the case for Chevy models affected by the availability of heated steering wheels and heated seats. It is also currently unclear if affected models will be offered with a credit for buyers.
First on the list of affected models is the Chevy Camaro. Starting with vehicles produced as of today, January 31st, some units of Chevy Camaro will be built without Rear Park Assist (RPO code UD7). Rear Park Assist is typically standard on 3LT, 2SS and ZL1 trim levels of the 2022 Camaro, including both coupe and convertible body styles.
Next is the Chevy Corvette. Starting with vehicles produced as of Monday, January 24th, some units of the 2022 Corvette will be built without Rear Park Assist. Rear Park Assist is typically standard on all trim levels of the 2022 Corvette, including both coupe and convertible body styles.
The Chevy Silverado pickup has also been affected. Although GM Authority previously reported limited availability of parking features for the Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited and Silverado HD, the restrictions also now apply to the fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, with some units of the refreshed Silverado 1500 slated to be built without Rear Park Assist and Front and Rear Park Assist (RPO code UD5).
That said, full production of the refreshed Silverado has yet to begin, so the limited availability of these parking features may change when production officially starts. Either way, Rear Park Assist was originally part of the WT Safety Package (RPO code PQA) for the WT trim, as well as part of the Safety Package (RPO code PQB) for the LT, RST and LT Trail Boss, and included as standard for the new ZR2. Additionally, Front and Rear Park Assist was set to be standard for LTZ and High Country trim levels. Front and Rear Park Assist is set to be standard on the LTZ and High Country.
The Chevy Trailblazer is also affected, starting with vehicles produced today, January 10th, with some units built without Rear Park Assist. Rear Park Assist is usually part of the Driver Confidence and Cruise Package (RPO code WPN) on LS trims, as well as part of the Driver Confidence Package (RPO code ZL5) or Confidence II Package (RPO code SOR) on LT, Activ, and RS trims.
Finally, the Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban are also affected, starting with vehicles produced on January 24th. Some units of the 2022 Tahoe and 2022 Suburban will be built without Front and Rear Park Assist, which is usually standard on all trim levels.
