2022 Chevy Silverado Super Cruise Under Constraint14
The fully refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 introduces a long list of changes and updates for the popular light-duty pickup, not the least of which is the addition of the GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist system. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the GM Super Cruise system is under constraint for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500.
According to GM Authority sources, Super Cruise will not be included for some units of the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 that would normally include the feature, as of June 13th production. Unsurprisingly, the feature constraint is the result of the ongoing global microchip shortage. It’s unclear at this time when the feature will become available again. In addition to Super Cruise, the Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking feature is also part of this new feature constraint.
For those who may be unaware, GM Super Cruise is tagged with RPO code UKL, and is only available for the High Country trim in the Crew Cab / Short Bed configuration. Super Cruise requires the Technology Package (RPO code CWM), as well as the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine or the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine. Super Cruise is also included with the optional High Country Premium II Package (RPO code PDT), which is currently unavailable to order as well.
Meanwhile, Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking is tagged with RPO code UGN, and is only available for the High Country trim with either the Crew Cab / Short Bed body configuration, or the Crew Cab / Standard Bed configuration. Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking is included and only available with the Technology Package (RPO code CWM).
Buyers affected by this constraint will receive a $2,300 MSRP credit. No retrofit will be available.
As a reminder, 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is offered with four engine options, including the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine (which is now rated at a maximum of 430 pound-feet of torque), the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax.
Under the skin is the GM T1 platform, while production takes place at the GM Silao plant in Mexico, the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana, and the GM Oshawa plant in Canada.

After reserving in October of 2021 and waiting until May to get your order accepted, if you want to add super cruise you have to cancel your reservation and re-order when it becomes available. At this point it will be a 2023 model.
That’s as much your dealers fault as it is GM’s it’s a limited production option as of now and will quickly be obsolete as ultra cruise becomes the standard.
Your order is accepted based on allocation. I’m one of 2 ZR2 orders that were accepted and built as of 4/19 (still waiting for shipment as of this comment)
At a very high profile Florida dealer. The market is absolute garbage thanks to good ol Sleepy Joe.
The defense production act can do wonders for semiconductor and oil prices in this country. If it wasn’t for the agenda…
Why do you let idiots post non in productive comments here?
There was no order reservation program for the Silverado, only the GMC Sierra. If by reservation you mean an order with a dealer, then yes you’ll have to cancel if you don’t want the truck without the option and your order did not reach 3000-Accepted status.
Still not necessarily the dealer’s fault, as GM only doled out an extremely limited number of them before they cut it off again. I have a couple orders that are built and are sitting at the plant (most likely waiting for components) and had orders for several more which I now have to inform customers about. Not fun, but there’s nothing more we can do.
They’ve been constrained since late March/early April. This is not new. GM is just now making it public. My truck was “produced” at the beginning of April and has been sitting at the factory since then because of this constraint. I’ll be lucky if it get the super cruise before this cut off date. More than likely they’ll wait until that date to ship my truck so they can get away with it. GM-1 v. Me-0.
The way the announcement to us was worded, it sounds like orders with it that were accepted for production (or built) will still be completed WITH Super Cruise, but it does seem that they are all waiting at the factory for components. I have a couple orders in the same situation as yours. Sounds like you’re one of the lucky ones.
Big deal….High Country only represents 4% of Chevrolet’s sales…. Super Cruise probably represents less than 10% of the High Country orders.
No worries, not interested.
95% could not give 2 $hits about super cruise and all the nanny garbage on these new trucks , seats vibrating, alarms , dash turning red and flashing, lane keep $hit and the truck driving itself, put the phone down and drive the dam thing like we did 20 years ago.
I could give zero about self driving. But some features are indeed a treat. A 1500 is like driving a semi truck compared to my old 2000 2500 with a 454. You could see everything in that truck. Now that same truck looks like an S10.
You can see absolutely nothing out of the new trucks without added tech. I can whip my GMT900 like nothing but I sit in a T1 or even a K2 and it would take me much seat time to be as comfortable.
The new trucks are much safer but the visibility cost is very real.
That being said, I would have absolutely taken my new ZR2 with a front bench. But I will keep the tech. Minus the digital dash. I am forever an analog gauge person.
I think it’s time to start making trucks, Real American trucks, ( made in Mexico)
I now own and drive a 2022 refreshed silverado RST. Without heated seats, rear back up sensors, and most of all, the Weather Channel app installed to see the weather radar.
And no one knows how to get it. Can someone please help me?
Where do we find out about the $2300 MSRP credit?
It will be reflected in the final price on the window sticker. It only affects the Sierra Denali Ultimate, as Super Cruise was supposed to be a standard feature.
I specifically ordered my Cadillac without the super cruise. Just another thing to fail after the warranty expires. Regular cruise works well for me.
