2022 Chevy Silverado Gets Heated And Ventilated Seats Back13
According to GM Authority sources, all units of the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 that would normally be equipped with heated front seats (RPO code KA1), ventilated front seats (RPO code KQV), and heated outboard rear seats (RPO code KA6) will once include these features, starting with April 24th production. As GM Authority covered in the past, these features have been under constraint for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 since March 14th production as a result of the ongoing global microchip shortage.
In addition, all units of the 2022 Chevy Silverado HD that would normally be equipped with heated front seats and ventilated front seats will once again include these features, as of April 24th production. Similarly, these features were also under constraint since March 14th production, once again as a result of the microchip shortage.
Critically, it should be noted that the Ventilated seat cushion blower motors for both the Chevy Silverado 1500 and Chevy Silverado HD are still under constraint. As such, affected models will not include functioning ventilated seats, even if said units include the ventilated seat module that was previously under constraint.
In terms of availability, the Chevy Silverado 1500 normally offers heated front seats as standard on LT trims and above, but not WT, Custom, or Custom Trail Boss trims. Additionally, ventilated front seats are normally equipped as standard for ZR2, LTZ, and High Country trims, but not the rest of the lineup, while heated outboard rear seats are normally equipped as standard for ZR2 and High Country trims, offered as optional on LTZ, and not offered for the rest of the lineup.
To note, 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 ZR2 and High Country trim levels were unaffected by constraints for heated front seats ventilated seats, while the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 ZR2 was unaffected by constraints for the heated outboard rear seats.
With regard to the 2022 Chevy Silverado Silverado HD, heated front seats are normally optional for LT trims, standard for LTZ and High Country, and not offered on WT and Custom. Ventilated front seats are normally optional for LTZ and standard for High Country, and not offered for WT, Custom or LT.

Why is there nothing on the site about the 3.0 constraint and the lack of trailer brake controllers holding up building some trucks? Per my call with Chevrolet yesterday, this is a big deal.
When do Chevy double cabs get the multi-flex tailgate back?
I bought a 2022 LTD Duramax that has heated seats but aren’t functional because of the chip. Wonder when I will get it? My guess is, never.
I am is the same boat……2022 LTZ Durmax….. but I need the chips for seats and parking
This is GMA, they don’t ask the tough question to GM/Chevy, only report what they get spoon fed
Any word on when the retrofit will be available for HD trucks that were built without the modules and were promised the upgrade?
My dealer tried to submit my order of a High Country and was denied due to no Adaptive Cruise available (tech package) and no Multipro tailgates. But we have heated and cooled seats.
I need my heated seats very bad. I have a very bad back and with the heat seats I can drive long distances . It saves me from the pain.
I’ve got a double cab on order but still can’t get the multi flex tailgate. What gives. Available for crewcabs. I actually emailed gm and they can’t give me an answer
Justjoe, I emailed Chevy as well about this tailgate problem. They didn’t even reply.
I formally request a article of a breakdown by production dates of features on restraint. My ZR2 was built 4/19 and all I believe was cut from the truck was the column lock.
Would be nice to have a page dedicated by model and date.
What is this Twitter?
Battery car man buy company, me angry.
Any idea when GM will implement the moonroof design on their pickup trucks? Ford has done it for a few years now and it appears that Ram and Toyota have made the switch as well.
i have a 2022 LTZ no ventalated or heated or park assist when will the chips be in?
