As previously covered, select units of the 2022 GMC Yukon were built without heated and ventilated front seats. Now, GM Authority has learned that dealers have started retrofitting 2022 Yukon units that were affected by this supply constraint with this feature.
As context, some 2022 Yukon SLT and AT4 units built between March 14th and April 17th, 2022 were built without heated and ventilated front seats (RPO code KQV) due to a supply constraint. Affected vehicles can be identified by the RPO code 00V on the window sticker.
Normally standard across SLT, AT4 and Denali trim levels, these features were not offered at all on the base SLE trim. During the constraint, only SLT and AT4 units were built without this feature, while the Denali trim level was unaffected.
Additionally, some SLT and AT4 units, as well as select trim levels of the GMC Sierra and GMC Acadia, were built without ventilated seat blower motors. Affected vehicles can be identified by the RPO code 04O on the window sticker. Notably, some 2023 Yukon models were also built without ventilated seat blower motors. Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by their dealership to set up an appointment for the retrofit.
As a reminder, the 2022 GMC Yukon was available with three engine options, including the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. Under the skin, the 2022 Yukon rode on GM T1 platform, while production took place at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
