Could be nothing or a problem. I have a 2012 and I can go into town and run errands for several hours and the temp will never change, even though the actual temp rises 15 degrees or more. If you are doing a lot short trips with frequent engine stops the temp reading won't change. My experience is that it takes about 15 minutes of continuous driving for the temp to change to the current temperature. After that, the temp will update continuously as the temps change, unless you shut off the vehicle.

It's this little bugger hiding on the front bumper beam above the splash cover you remove to change the oil.
