2023 GMC Sierra HD Park Assist Under Constraint9
The Front and Rear Park Assist feature (RPO code UD5) will be under constraint at the start of regular production (SORP) for the 2023 GMC Sierra HD.
GM Authority has learned that some 2023 GMC Sierra HD units will be produced without the Front and Rear Park Assist feature once production at the GM Flint plant in Michigan gets under way this year. While some electronic features have returned to GM vehicles in recent weeks, the automaker is still grappling with a shortage of microchips, leading it to remove some features from certain vehicles.
The Front and Rear Park feature is included and only available with the (PQA) 1SA Driver Alert Package on the base-level Pro trim for the 2023 GMC Sierra HD. On the SLE, SLT and AT4 trim levels, the feature is normally included and only available with the (PQB) Driver Alert Package I. This feature is standard on the Denali trim level. All GMC Sierra HD trim levels will be affected by this temporary feature deletion.
The light-duty 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 is facing a similar situation, as well, with Rear Park Assist (RPO code UD7) and Front and Rear Park Assist (RPO code UD5) also set to be under constraint on that model from launch.
Production of the 2023 GMC Sierra HD will kick off at the GM Flint plant on July 18th, 2022, GM Authority reported previously. The order books for the 2023 Sierra HD opened up on May 5th, 2022.
The 2023 GMC Sierra HD will precede a model refresh set to launch for the 2024 model year, rather than the 2023 model year as originally expected. The delay is the result of various setbacks stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, which has pushed back the timetable for several GM vehicle programs. That means the 2023 GMC Sierra HD will introduce only minor changes prior to more significant changes slated to arrive for the subsequent 2024 model year.

Has anyone started receiving their retro fit for heated seats, heated steering wheel, and park assist! It’s the Summer of 2022.
No , Also still waiting.
Still waiting on mine too.
Work for a GM dealer, still haven’t even gotten a single word about those
No and dealer said retro fit for heated seats, heated steering wheel and park assist would be here by June 2022. What really ticks me off is that I transport recently delivered vehicles to dealers and they HAVE the chips and features. Why can’t they look after existing customers first – but I guess it’s too much to ask when your trying to sell as many vehicles as possible. I will be throughly pissed off if I have to drive the winter without these features which I ordered and paid for. GM’s credit for missing features is a joke!!
Hell, they’ve already got your business. They are in no hurry to move on this, but they do need to sell more cars to stay in business. My truck just came in 4 weeks ago and it did not include these chips.
I hope I am wrong but I am getting the feeling that those that have purchased trucks without park assist and other features (including myself on my 2022 Silverado HD) are going to be waiting a while for the chips. Especially when GM starts putting the available chips in the new vehicles first like they are already doing in some 2023 1500 models.
