The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban arrive as the second model year following full generational overhauls introduced for the 2021 model year. Both vehicles previously offered the Power-Sliding Console feature, but as covered previously, that feature was later under constraint. Now, however, the power-sliding console is once again available for High Country trim levels.
The feature in question is officially called the “Power-sliding center floor console with drawer, secure storage, manual sliding armrest and cup holders for second row,” and is tagged with RPO code DCH. Per previous GM Authority coverage, the feature has been unavailable to order since January, and it was later believed to be unavailable for the remainder of the 2022 model year.
Now, however, the Power-sliding center floor console has returned, but only for the 2022 Chevy Tahoe High Country and 2022 Chevy Suburban High Country trim levels. The feature is still unavailable to order on LT, RST, and Z71 trim levels, all of which offered the feature as an optional upgrade. The feature was also included as standard on Premier trim levels, but is still not available on the Premier either.
For those readers who may be unaware, the power-sliding console feature can automatically slide forwards or backwards up to 10 inches, with multiple positions and configurations for enhanced practicality and comfort.
In addition to constraint for the power-sliding console, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban are both unavailable to order with the Rear-Seat Media System (RPO code UW9).
As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban are offered with three engine options, including the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. Under the body panels, both SUVs ride on the GM T1 platform, with production taking place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
