The 2022 Chevy Colorado is the eighth model year for the second-generation nameplate, introducing only a few small changes and updates compared to the previous 2021 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that the constraint for the 2022 Chevy Colorado’s park assist feature has been resolved.
According to GM Authority sources, the constraint for the Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist feature (RPO code UD7) offered for the 2022 Chevy Colorado is no longer in place, as of August 1st production. Availability of the feature was previously limited since December 20th, 2021, as GM Authority covered previously. The availability was limited as a result of the global microchip shortage, with several other Chevy models also affected, including the Chevy Blazer, Chevy Silverado 1500, Chevy Silverado HD, and Chevy Traverse.
The Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist feature is normally available as an optional extra for 2022 Chevy Colorado WT and LT trim levels, and included as standard for the Z71 trim level. The feature is not offered for the 2022 Chevy Colorado ZR2.
The 2022 Chevy Colorado follows a light update for the pickup that debuted for the 2021 model year. The 2021 light update was as close to a mid-cycle refresh as it gets, without actually being an official model refresh.
As GM Authority has covered, the 2022 Chevy Colorado has received several price increases, the latest of which pads the MSRP for each trim level by $300. The increase to the MSRP follows another price hike applied in May, which affected the pickup’s destination freight charge (DFC). Pricing now starts at $27,230, including DFC.
Engine options for the 2022 Chevy Colorado include the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGZ gasoline engine, rated at 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, and the naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine, rated at 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. The 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax was recently built out for the 2022 model year. Under the skin is the GM GMT 31XX platform, while production takes place at the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri.
The all-new third-generation Chevy Colorado recently debuted for the 2023 model year.
