The 2022 Chevy Tahoe High Country trim level and 2022 Chevy Suburban High Country trim level are no longer under constraint with regard to the Front and Rear Park Assist feature, GM Authority has learned.
As GM Authority covered previously, Front and Rear Park Assist was under constraint for all trim levels of the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban since January 24th production, with some units that would normally be equipped with the feature built without it. The Front and Rear Park Assist feature is tagged with RPO code UD5. Units affected by the constraint are identified as such on the vehicle’s window sticker.
Now, however, GM Authority has learned that as of April 10th production, all units of the 2022 Chevy Tahoe High Country and 2022 Chevy Suburban High Country will once again be equipped with the Front and Rear Park Assist feature. Meanwhile, all other trim levels for the SUVs, including LS, LT, RST, Z71, and Premier, are still under constraint with regard to Front and Rear Park Assist.
As covered extensively in the past, the constraints for this feature are the result of the ongoing global microchip shortage, which has also affected several other features across GM’s vehicle lineup. With regard to the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban specifically, the microchip shortage has also affected heated and ventilated seats, but, as GM Authority recently reported, heated and ventilated front seats are once again offered for both SUVs. The heated steering wheel feature was also affected, but that too has returned to the order books.
Both the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban are available with three powertrain options, starting with the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, followed by the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and finally, the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. Both SUVs ride on top of the GM T1 platform, while production takes place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
