2022 Chevy Silverado L87 And LM2 Engines Constrained For Rest Of Model Year39
The 6.2L L87 V8 gasoline engine and 3.0L LM2 Duramax diesel engine will not be available to order on the Chevy Silverado 1500 for the remainder of the 2022 model year.
These two engines were already under constraint on the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, as GM Authority reported previously, but it was unclear if they would return to the pickup before production shifted over to the 2023MY. We have now learned these engines will be under constraint for the remainder of the 2022MY production run, leaving only the turbocharged 2.7L L3B gasoline engine and the 5.3L L84 V8 gasoline engine unaffected by supply setbacks. To be clear, the LM2 diesel engine is not available to order in the Silverado Custom Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country trim levels only.
Customers waiting for their new 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 to be built with one of these two unavailable engines will likely be contacted by their dealer to propose alternative solutions. These solutions may include delaying production of the customer’s new truck, or selecting one of the two available alternative engine options.
The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will replace the 3.0L LM2 diesel engine with a mildly updated model referred to as LZ0. While it’s not clear how the LM2 and LZ0 will differ, it seems likely the newer version will offer improved emissions and fuel economy figures, or potentially an increase in output and capacities. That means all Chevy Silverado 1500 models featuring the LM2 engine have now been produced. The L3B engine is rated at 277 horsepower at 3,750 rpm and 460 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm.
Production of the 2023 model year Chevy Silverado 1500 will continue to take place at the GM Silao plant in Mexico, GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana, and GM Oshawa plant in Canada. Details on pricing and when production of the 2023 model year Silverado 1500 will commence are currently not available.

Why ? Details ?
Maybe because there are only 3 weeks of 2022 build time left? Microchips for these engines will likely go to other needed products or to the new engines for the next model year.
Based on info on Donlen, it is more at the beginning of September that GM would start building the 2023 models. And based on GM’s trend, they are usually at least a few weeks late.
Just saying this because I still didn t got my truck so it has an impact for me.
I guess after about a year of patiently waiting and giving a chance to GM time has come to go ahead with plan B.
What specific components are holding up your build? Your dealer should be able to tell you what components are causing the issue.
I have a ’22 1500 High Country w/High Country Premium II on order. I opted for the LM2 (3.0 diesel), and SuperCruise. Both of these items are on constraint. I’m still sitting at 1100, but I expect my order to either be canceled, or changed to a ’23 at any time. I placed my order in April.
I ordered a loaded AT4 on April 12 with the 6.2. It was built this past week and I likely received one of the last 6.2s. I got lucky. And it doesn’t sound like it’s missing any features to start.
The good is you know what features are the problem. If you have to reorder a 23, it gives t
You a chance to rethink those features.
I ordered a ‘bare’ High Country LM2 with the towing mirrors and the towing options. I asked my sales representative why my vehicle wasn’t built and he could not answer. Supposedly that my order is stuck at code 3000 for about 4-5 months now.
My 2022 Silverado has been built for
Over a month and still sitting in New Mexico. 2023 will Be out before I get mine. Chevrolet needs to step their game up.
My 2022 Silverado 2500 HD ordered end of Jan sat in Michigan for 6 weeks after it was done being built. Finally took delivery May 16. I feel your pain.
I have a 2022 Chevy 1500 3.0 duramax with a refresh interior if anybody is interested, 9300 miles. if interested shoot me your phone number
Sorry to hear the motor problems. It’s too bad GM is so far behind the other vehicle manufacturers. I will probably be looking for a Ford!
Good luck! Unlike many, I like both GM and Ford trucks, and I’ve owned several of each. I used Ford’s build and price tool to build a 2WD F150 king ranch. I just about fell out when the MSRP came out to $77,000. Note, this is not a platinum, not a limited, not a raptor. Basically a Lariat a cooler interior. No thanks. Ill wait for a High Country Silverado.
Exactly Pete. People point out ford this ford that, point out how the 5.3 isn’t as powerful as the ford 5.0, ETC, ETC, but don’t acknowledge how pricy ford really are. The 5.3 compares to the fords 2.7 in the price category, and is more capable. It’s even cheaper than the 2.7 after ford adds the aluminum body, active safety features, ETC. I stick with Chevy because fords are pricey and I don’t trust rams yet enough to switch.
Lots of dumb @$$’s on here. 2023 is almost here. There are still some 6.2 and 3.0 engines on dealership lots. The 2.7 isn’t small, if it had 2 more cylinders it would be a 4.1. The 2.7’s cylinders are actually bigger than the 3.0’s. The 2.7 is gm taking a 2.5 from the Colorado, beefing it up, stroking it, and turbocharging it. The 2.7 has almost as much as torque as the 6.2, but at lower rpm. The 2.7 isn’t maxed out, it’s actually conservatively tuned. It doesn’t boost much at high rpm. The purpose of turbocharging and direct injection on gasoline engines is to closer align them with diesels. GM was originally shooting for HCCI, if you know what that is. The 3.0 is running at higher pressures than 2.7, so why do people bash the 2.7 so much? The 2.7 is a HUGE improvement over the 4.3, which had a SPLIT PIN CRANKSHAFT. The 2.7 is a great BASE engine. The 5.3 is tried and true. It’s basically a debored 6.2. A 5.3 with a tune puts out numbers similar to a stock 6.2. If you need turbos and low end torque, buy a 2.7 or wait until the 2023 model year. If you want a tried and true V8, get the 5.3, or wait until the 2023 model year. If none of this suites you, change brands. I think GM people are the most unsatisfied automotive customers, because they never get what they want, know GM won’t do it the way they want, but still keep buying from GM. What was the definition of insanity again? I honestly think all these GM people have never owned another brand in recent memory and are too scared to change, because their daddy’s had a Chevrolet truck or they listen to too much modern/fake country music. I gave up on GM a long time ago and have been happy and better for it ever since. I come to this website to check on the competition’s news and to laugh at pouting gm customers. What company would name their company general (nonspecific) motors anyway?
Do you remember the day when you could order a vehicle with an option of engines, manual or auto trans, choice of rear-end gears, different interiors, and you could even have the factor spray any color (not listed as a vehicle color for the year) on your vehicle (for an additional cost) … I DO remember those days. Those were days when the automaker worked to satisfy the consumer. Now you can have your car or truck in black or white, any other color (if not deleted) is an additional $485 USD. Sad…
That’s total BS! I Don’t want the lil turbo or 5.3.
Both engines(5.3 W/O DFM only) are extremely capable and reliable. I know everyone wants the 6.2 but the engines have had BAD QC issues for some time. Same lifters(same part number) as the 5.3 but the 6.2 continues to come with DFM. We have 4 trucks, 2 SUVs all with less than 3k miles sitting in the service lot waiting on a 6.2 engine since Nov 2021 AFTER getting both side lifters done and cam replacement. We have also never had to replace any 2.7. not even the turbo. Very few TSB’s or issues.
Hundreds of thousands of 5.3’s and hundreds of thousands of 2.7’s are used yearly…. No supply issues. A motor that is equipped usually only by special order has supply constraints? Doubtful. More accurately GM isn’t tooling enough of these motors for the little demand that exists.
I can see a supply issue for the 3.0 as that motor is winding down to be replaced and much more often boxed checked by the dealer for Retail Stock.
The 3.0 has a very high take rate and with gas at $5+ a gallon it’s 50% better fuel economy than the V8 makes it even more appealing.
The 3.0 isn’t winding down it is being tweaked/improved it is popular at 30+ mpg in a full sized truck!
Which means production is winding down or already stopped on the current motor?
Imagine if we were given a real reason, the truth for a change… (not GM Authority’s faultm, but GM’s fault)
Just one more way for GM to thumb their nose at those of us who don’t want an electric truck. I waited a year for my 3.0 and was told I would be waiting at least another 5-6 months for the new version. Cancelled my order.
I’m just waiting for the improved version to be available then I will order.
You’re waiting for the LM0 which will introduce cylinder deactivation under the guise of emissions control and cause lifter issues? The 5.3 in my Tahoe already went, GM won’t even do the right thing and replace lifters on both sides, just leaving them in there to fail on our next trip.
Take my advice and get the LM2 while you can…
The diesel is DOHC, has followers and does not have lifters.
My GMC Crew Cab 4×4 with the LM2 built almost 3 months to the day from when I ordered it Dec 27th 2021. I took delivery 04/12. Not sure why you have been waiting so long.
They are pushing the 4 bangers that nobody wants!
If I had to guess, their maximizing output of the 5.3 by streamlining their suppliers. At the Tonawanda plant GM’s production lines are largely modular and automated so they don’t care if it’s a 5.3 or 6.2, but the piston and connecting rod MFG’s might be able to increase output by 10-15% by going without switchovers. Producing 15% more trucks will help them win over buyers who may be looking at a ford or a ram but can’t get one. Same with the 2.7 as it’s made alongside the 2.5/2.0 and they can steal capacity from crossover motors.
The 6.2L is constrained due to a supplier’s inability to meet production forecasts and is not chip-related. All 6.2L production going forward needs to be reserved for Escalade until further notice.
The 3.0L diesel is chip-based. Manufacturers need to make the difficult decisions to curtail certain products and features for the “greater good” of overall vehicle availability. GM is returning to the “build-shy” method of building some units and parking them until some chips arrive. SuperCruise is no longer available on Escalade until further notice (and by extension, any other model). This includes the first Escalade Vs to be built.
There are no Silverado ZR2s available because of the 6.2L constraint.
These issues will bleed into the start of 2023 production.
Supply issues among all industries, worldwide, are only getting worse. Its likely another 18-24 month before we see any relief. Covid. Putin. Lack of foresight. Books will be written about this period of history. Hopefully we can all learn from it.
Don’t forget that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott practically broke the supply chain coming out of Mexico by ordering his state police inspectors to do 36 hour “safety” inspections of all trucks coming out of Mexico, American or not. This has gone on for months.
Abbot didn’t Slow down anything. If so it would have been in the news for weeks with caravans of trucks and trains going around through Arizona. Instead we saw none of that and it was a flash in the pan point the finger news cycle.
No proof of abbot stalling anything
There is tons of proof that shows how let’s go brandon has messed up the supply lines by; 1, paying people to stay home so there’s a shortage of truckers, dock hands and warehouse workers to unload trucks, 2,reinstating the regulations on truckers that were waved wisely by our previous administration that allowed truckers to drive over their limited hours in reasonable situations and didn’t fine them every 5 miles for frivolous violations.
That and Brandon’s best friend China is still locked down. Reality check.
I ordered a ZR2 in January, I have talked to the dealership on and off. But it’s in a code lock out! It will never get built! Why don’t they put the Corvette or Camaro ? GM is so far behind the other manufacturer! Very disappointed!
Ordered a ZR2 on March 17th.
Confirmed today, scheduled built week of July 18th
How did you find out your build date? I ordered my RST on March 21st. Still waiting.
I called my dealer and asked for a status update on the order.
My ZR2 is on its third TPW now its July 27. Post up yours’s if its built or moved back. I’m thinking mine will be 23 model.
Glad I got my 6.2
My 2021 AT4 was delivered to the dealer in January of this year. I picked it up the next day. no complaints yet, the 5.3 engine is perfect for me.
