Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist (RPO UKZ) is a more advanced version of GM’s Automatic Park Assist (RPO UFQ), and includes new technologies to help drivers during parking. These new features allow for semi-automatic steering, applying limited braking under certain conditions, along with shifting gears into a detected parallel or perpendicular parking space.
For reference, Automatic Parking Assist includes front, rear, parallel and perpendicular park assist, and is notably available in the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox. The park assist technology allows the vehicle to handle steering while parking, while the driver is responsible for braking duties. Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist handles braking duties as well as steering duties, simplifying the process of parking the 2023 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban.
Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist was first introduced for the fifth-generation 2021 Cadillac Escalade, and has now trickled down to the Tahoe and Suburban. Another notable technology that has made its way to the two SUVs is Super Cruise, GM’s semi-autonomous driver assist feature. While pricing has not been made available for Super Cruise, it was previously offered as a $2,500 extra on the 2022 Cadillac Escalade.
Both the 2023 Tahoe and 2023 Suburban will be available to order with a choice of three powertrains. These powertrain options include 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. These engine options bolt to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, with rear-wheel drive as standard and four-wheel drive available for a price premium.
Both the Tahoe and Suburban ride on the GM T1 platform, and are produced at the GM Arlington plant in Texas. Pricing for the 2023 model-year Tahoe starts at $54,295, while the 2023 Suburban starts at $56,995.
