As we already know, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 refresh will receive a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. But we now know that the new hardware and software will trickle into high-end variants of the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2022 Chevrolet Suburban and 2022 GMC Yukon families will get a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, as well.
We were told to expect “some similarities” with the interiors of the 2022 model year GMC and Chevrolet full-size trucks and SUVs. And we’re happy to report that further details have entered the light.
2022 Chevrolet Tahoe & Suburban High Country, 2022 Yukon Denali Infotainment Updates
When we say “high-end,” we’re talking about the 2022 Yukon Denali and the 2022 Tahoe and Suburban High-Country. So, you will have to shell out some money to receive the futuristic dashboard, but some might consider it worth it. In some of the models, the cluster will be paired with the infotainment center that will come with a new infotainment system software called “Google Built-in.”
The 2022 GMC and Chevrolet vehicle order guides confirm these updates, first reported by GM-Trucks. The RPO code for the digital instrument cluster is UDV, while the infotainment screen is IOK.
Meanwhile, the GMC Hummer EV comes with a 13.4-inch infotainment screen, and will will powered by the Unreal Engine graphics system. This setup is likely be a little different from the 2022 GMC Yukon, Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban updates. However, GMT reports that the digital instrument cluster – where information such as speed, fuel, trip info and other crucial data – is expected to be the same among the new Hummer, as well as the high-end 2022 Tahoe High Country, Suburban High Country and Yukon Denali variants.
The hardware that runs the screen is independent of the screens making the screens interchangeable from vehicle to vehicle. This could mean down the line, GM might offer the 13.4-inch screen as an option for bigger SUVs.
The 12.3-inch diagonal High-Definition colored digital instrument cluster/driver information center offers customizable data settings and controls to help make the driving experience not only convenient and exciting but also very efficient. As we wait to see how the microchip crisis affects the ongoing drought of trucks and SUVs that are not on dealership lots, at least we know that the engineers are still hard at work keeping new technology rolling strong for the vehicles that may have to sit dormant for some time.
