We put a deposit on a 2022 Blazer June 4. It was scheduled to be built on 6/20. Received VIN and confirmation that it was built that week. Per dealer, it is being held up waiting for chip(s). That was 3 weeks ago. Is there any way I can get info on status?

The dealership or chat feature on Chevrolet website seems to be the best way to get info. From what I am finding it isn’t always accurate Information though. From monitoring other sites a lot of resources people used to help track orders were shut down or limited to dealers only. My 22 RS Blazer experience was 4 months from order and about 7 weeks from build date to delivery. It is missing the chips for seats and steering wheel. On the other hand I have a Traverse on order that was supposed to be built 2 weeks ago still not built.

I spoke with my dealership's Service Manager. He said I should receive an email from GM when the chip for mine is ready. (apparently, they are custom programmed for each vehicle)
Once I have that email, I'm supposed to be able to schedule a service date with the dealership, to bring the Blazer in for install.

I can not believe that they are accepting orders for 2023's when the 22's are still being built. they said that the production of the 2023 blazers begin in early august, I'm expected to get my 23 end of September, early October. fingers crossed.

They are doing the same with other models as well. There are a lot of people waiting on 2022 Traverses and they have started production on the 2023s. Some dealerships have received some already.

what specs? such as trim line and color? I have heard that specific trims and colors are taking longer to produce.

That’s great news. I heard they had started the retrofit on the Traverses but had not heard anything on the Blazers. it will be interesting the order they fulfill them. I‘d be happy having it before winter even though ventilated seats would be nice in this 100 degree weather.

Got this in today's email. (part of a larger letter on the topic)
At least the world is starting to move.

We will provide you with regular status updates as we work toward timing for available parts. We have started the process of retrofitting vehicles. Once your vehicle is eligible, you will receive a notification from Chevrolet to contact your dealer to schedule an appointment.

No emails here...I wonder what the order they are doing them? Purchase date? Model? Location? I've got a 22 RS bought April 20 in Southeast Texas.
I wonder the same as well. Mine is 22 RS purchased Jan 29 built in Dec. I would hope they are going in order of purchase or build date because then the buyers who have been waiting longest are taken care of first and not something like location.

I’m hoping mine will be ready in next month or so since I already have to take my Blazer in for work then.

I purchased mine back in January and still waiting for my seat chips.
Same here. Purchased in January and waiting on seat and steering wheel. I chatted with Chevrolet chat and they basically said ask your dealership. Talked with them and they can see my Blazer has an order for missing parts but no ETA or anything other than there is an order.

The lack of communication is very frustrating and the fact that new vehicles are coming with chips while still waiting. Part of me is happy new vehicles have the chips so I’m not waiting for a chips on a second vehicle.

Yes, it does suck that we haven't gotten chips yet. We can thank our wonderful corporations for relying on China for things like this. Maybe one day, probably not in my lifetime, we can make things at a reasonable cost in the US and stop relying on foreign sources. One can only hope. At least that's the only thing I'm waiting on for my Blazer, a seat chip. As far as everything else about my Blazer, I'm very satisfied and have no issues thus far.

Bought my 22 Blazer in December and received email a couple months ago that the process was starting and would be notified when it’s time. Have heard nothing. I am going to be angry if I don’t get them by December. It is ridiculous to be waiting a year for something that the new customers are receiving now.
