Of all the vehicles on sale today, it somehow makes sense that the full-size van twins from General Motors—the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana—still offer a CD player as a factory option. It’s part of the vans‘ fanciest available sound system. After all, the Express and Savana have seemingly been on sale since just after the last Ice Age. But like taxes, death is inevitable. And so the painfully obsolete CD option has been consigned to oblivion, as reported by GM Authority. The ball’s in your court now, Lexus.
The change happens for the 2022 model year, with the discontinuation of the “US8” sound system and its in-dash CD player. Just like the two vans themselves, we presume this option stuck around so long simply due to the fact its tooling has been amortized many times over.
If you’re wondering what replaces the old US8 stereo option in the 2022 Express and Savana, then you better prepare for disappointment. Rather than introduce a newer more modern infotainment setup to these vans, GM is taking the system that currently sits below the US8 in today’s vans stereo system hierarchy and adding SiriusXM capability and extra speakers to the unit so it can serve as the premium option in 2022 model year Express and Savana vans.
