As the ongoing global microchip shortage persists, certain 2022 model year Cadillac vehicles will have limited availably of parking assist features, Cadillac Society has learned.
All three of the luxury marque’s crossover offerings – the Cadillac XT4, Cadillac XT5, and Cadillac XT6 – assembled after December 20th, 2021 are affected by the change in parking assist feature availability. Some units of the XT4 will no longer be equipped with Rear Park Assist, while some units of the XT4, XT5, and XT6 will not have Front and Rear Park assist. It’s important to note that only specific trim levels of the aforementioned Cadillac crossovers are affected by the limited inclusion of parking assist features.
The table below shows a breakdown of which Cadillac vehicles are affected by the change in the availability of the Park Assist features.
|Model||Affected Trim Levels||Affected Units||Rear Park Assist||Front and Rear Park Assist||Production Start Date|
|Cadillac XT4||Luxury||Some units||X||January 3|
|Cadillac XT4||Premium Luxury, Sport||Some units||X||January 3|
|Cadillac XT5||Luxury, Premium Luxury, Sport||Some units||X||December 20|
|Cadillac XT6||Luxury, Premium Luxury, Sport||Some units||X||December 20|
So far, the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 luxury sedans, as well as the full-size Escalade SUV, remain unaffected.
The limited availability of parking assist technology is the latest in a growing list of vehicle features to become either limited or eliminated completely due to the microchip shortage. Earlier this month, we reported that most Cadillac vehicles would be impacted by limited availability of heated steering wheels as well as heated and ventilated seats. The luxury marque has since announced that it will retrofit vehicles built without the previously mentioned features sometime in 2022. As of this writing, it’s unclear if Cadillac will be able to retrofit vehicles affected by limited parking assist feature availability.
