Genesis GV80, Other Models Lose Advanced Safety Tech Due To Chip Shortage

The Genesis G80 and GV70 also lose these features.

Because to a microprocessor shortage, the Highway Driving Assist II advanced driver assistance suite will be temporarily unavailable on the Genesis G80, GV70, and GV80. Instead, these vehicles will receive the regular version of Highway Driving Assist, which is less advanced. On the Monroney pricing sheet for the impacted automobiles, buyers will see a $200 credit. Edmunds was the first to break the storey.

When Highway Driving Assist II will be available again is unknown at this time. “We are unable to confirm the duration of the change at this time. We’re excited to get these improvements back into the Genesis lineup as soon as possible “Jarred Pellat, a Genesis official, told Motor1.com.

Due to a shortage of parts, Cadillac dropped Super Cruise from the 2022 Escalade.
