The 2022 Chevy Camaro is the seventh model year of the latest sixth-generation sports car, introducing just a few minor changes and updates over the preceding 2021 model year. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that some units of the 2022 Camaro will be built without two popular comfort features.
The features in question include Heated front seats, tagged with RPO code KA1, and Ventilated front seats, tagged with RPO code KQV. According to GM Authority sources, some units of the 2022 Chevy Camaro will be built without these features starting with March 28th production.
To note, Heated front seats and Ventilated front seats are usually equipped as standard on 2022 Chevy Camaro 2LT, 3LT, 2SS, and ZL1 trim levels.
The new feature constraints are the result of the ongoing global microchip shortage. As GM Authority covered previously, the 2022 Camaro isn’t the only Chevy vehicle facing new constraints as a result of the shortage, with the Chevy Blazer, Chevy Colorado, Chevy Equinox, Chevy Silverado 1500, Chevy Silverado HD, Chevy Suburban, Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Trailblazer, and Chevy Traverse all facing similar constraints.
Some of the features currently under constraints for these vehicles include Heated Steering Wheels, Heated Front Seats, Ventilated Front Seats, Heated Outboard Rear Seats, Rear Park Assist, and Front and Rear Park Assist.
As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Camaro is offered with a variety of different engine options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 gasoline engine, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine.
