Customers who own a 2022 Chevy Colorado affected by a recent constraint for the heated seat comfort feature are now eligible for a feature retrofit under a new GM customer satisfaction program.
Per previous exclusive GM Authority coverage, certain units of the 2022 Chevy Colorado were under constraint for the heated seat feature. Affected units were produced between November 15th of 2021 and February 21st of 2022, with the constraint put in place as a result of the global microchip shortage.
The heated seat constraint for the 2022 Chevy Colorado has since been resolved. However, for those customers affected by the constraint, this comfort feature is now available for a free dealer retrofit. Dealers are instructed to replace the front seat heater control module, reprogram the body control module, and in some vehicles, reprogram the HVAC control module.
As GM Authority has covered previously, several other GM vehicles affected by the recent heated seats constraint are also available for a free dealer retrofit, including the Chevy Camaro, Cadillac CT4, Chevy Malibu, and Buick Encore GX, among others.
As a reminder, the 2022 Chevy Colorado is the eighth model year for the second-gen pickup, ushering in only a few small updates and changes compared to the preceding, lightly updated 2021 model year. Under the hood, the 2022 Chevy Colorado can be had with a few powerplant options, including the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, which is rated at 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, and the 2.8L I4 LWN turbodiesel Duramax, which is rated at 181 horsepower and 396 pound-feet of torque. The naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine, rated at 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque, is no longer available.
