The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban arrive as the second model year for the all-new SUV nameplates, which includes the fifth-generation Tahoe and the twelfth-generation Suburban. Now, GM Authority has learned that both SUVs are currently unavailable to order with the Rear-Seat Media System.
The Rear-Seat Media System for the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban is tagged with RPO code UW9, and will be unavailable to order for the rest of the 2022 model year. It’s unclear at this time why the feature is no longer available.
The Rear-Seat Media System includes dual rear seat-mounted 12.6-inch diagonal color-touch LCD HD screens, as well as Wi-Fi wireless projection capability, two Bluetooth-capable headphones, and two HDMI ports located on the back of the center console.
Previously, the Rear-Seat Media System was optional on LT, RST, Z71, Premier and High Country trim levels, but not the LS. Pricing for the Rear-Seat Media System was set at $1,995.
As GM Authority already covered, GM made a few changes to its Rear Seat Media System for the 2022 model year by dropping some features. This includes deletion of the Navigation feature, which allowed users to view the vehicle location and search points of interest. What’s more, GM changed the USB-C ports to only provide charging, whereas before the ports would provide a wired connection to stream music. Finally, the Miracast screen mirroring feature was also deleted, which previously allowed users to mirror content from a separate phone or tablet screen.
As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban are offered with three engine options, including the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower and383 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. All three engines pair with the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, with both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive available.
