The Latest Microchip Update for Chevy

Important Update Regarding the Latest Microchip Update for Chevy:

Wednesday July 28th, 2021

We continue to take a variety of actions to manage our way through the global, industry-wide shortage of semiconductors so we can continue to support our dealers and customers by building our most in-demand vehicles.

If you have questions, please call the Ron Westphal Chevrolet Customer Care Team at 1-630-898-9630.  Or, visit us online.

To keep you updated, here are the latest scheduling adjustments related to the issue, which includes a return to full production at all three of our full-size truck plants in North America after a brief one-week impact:
• Flint, MI Assembly (Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD), Silao, Mexico Assembly (Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Cheyenne and GMC Sierra 1500) and Ft. Wayne, IN Assembly (Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500) will all resume full production on Monday, August 2.
o Flint is operating on only one shift the week of July 26.
o Both Silao and Ft. Wayne are down the week of July 26.

• Fairfax, KS Assembly (Cadillac XT4 and Chevrolet Malibu) will take an additional four weeks of downtime (weeks of August 23, August 30, September 6 and September 13).

o Chevrolet Malibu production will remain down.
• Wentzville, MO Assembly will extend downtime on the GMT 610 vans through the week of August 23.
o Chevrolet Colorado and Canyon production is not impacted.
These most recent scheduling adjustments are being driven by temporary parts shortages caused by semiconductor supply constraints from international markets experiencing COVID-19-related restrictions.
Although the situation remains complex and very fluid, our global purchasing and supply chain, engineering and manufacturing teams continue to find creative solutions and make strides working with the supply base to minimize the impact to our highest-demand and capacity-constrained vehicles, including full-size trucks and SUVs, for our customers.
We will continue to communicate often to keep you informed. Thank you, as always, for all your continued cooperation and support as we manage these issues. We appreciate your collective efforts to put the customer at the center and managing limited inventory levels while leveraging the tools we’ve provided to continue to deliver vehicles at unprecedented turn rates.

Chevy and the semiconductor situation right now

General Motors is dropping wireless smartphone charging from some new SUVs because of the global microchip shortage. It’s the latest feature to get the ax at the company due to the low supply of semiconductors. GM has already pulled HD radio from some models and auto start-stop and a fuel management module that made pickup trucks slightly cleaner and more efficient.

Certain trims of the 2021 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban and the 2021 GMC Yukon, made after July 12th will no longer include a wireless charging pad, as was first reported by the GM Authority blog. But GM tells The Verge that certain 2022 Buick Enclaves, Chevy Traverses, and Cadillac XT5s and XT6s made after August 2nd are also affected.

Buyers of these vehicles will get a $75 credit instead of the wireless charging option. (GM is offering a similar $50 credit for vehicles that are missing the HD radio feature.) The company is expected to make these vehicles without wireless charging pads through the rest of the respective model years.

“Our supply chain organization continues to make strides working with our supply base to mitigate the near-term impacts of the semiconductor situation,” the company said in a statement to The Verge. “GM continues to leverage every available semiconductor to build and ship our most popular and in-demand products, including our highly profitable full-size trucks and SUVs for our customers. However, the semiconductor situation continues to remain fluid globally.”
