The 2022 Chevy Camaro is once again available to order with heated and ventilated front seats after these options were removed from the sports car’s order books in late March due to the semiconductor chip shortage.
Heated front seats, tagged with RPO code KA1, and Ventilated front seats, tagged with RPO code KQV, returned to the 2022 Chevy Camaro as of the May 1st production date. The heated and ventilated front seats come standard on the 2LT, 3LT, 2SS and ZL1 trim levels.
As GM Authority covered previously, a wide variety of Chevy models are currently facing new equipment constraints as a result of the chip 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. Certain GMC vehicles, Cadillac vehicles, and Buick vehicles are also facing similar feature constraints as a result of the microchip shortage.
GM will apply minor changes to the Chevy Camaro for the 2023 model year, including the addition of the new Radiant Red and Sharkskin Metallic exterior colors. Radiant Red will be offered with the Camaro’s various exterior Design Package equipment groups, while Sharkskin Metallic will be available with the Shock and Steel Special Edition package.
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. The sports coupe rides on the GM Alpha platform, with production taking place at the GM Lansing Grand River Factory in Michigan.
