    Future Best-Seller:  The 2024 Chevy Trax SUV
    Sometimes you can just spot a hot-seller before it arrives. 
    -  Jerry Reynolds, The Car Pro

    Chevrolet is introducing the all-new 2024 Trax and wow is it an overhaul from the outgoing generation. Chevy's given the compact SUV a new Blazer-inspired look, new dimensions, more room, and updated tech, including available Adaptive Cruise Control, a first for the Trax. As the brand's entry-level SUV (since the Spark is no longer in the lineup), the starting price is just under $22,000.   

    “The all-new Trax has everything you need and nothing you don’t,” said Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet. “More space. More features. More style. This is an entry-level vehicle that will surprise and delight customers with its value and plays a critical role as the gateway into the Chevy brand.”



    The new Trax comes in four trims — LS, 1RS, LT, 2RS and ACTIV.  All trims add enhanced features and technologies, including:

    • Chevy Safety Assist with six advanced safety and driver awareness technologies
    • Larger infotainment screens — a standard 8-inch-diagonal system and an 11-inch-diagonal screen on LT, 2RS and ACTIV trims
    • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability
    • LED headlamps
    • 17-inch, 18-inch or 19-inch wheels
    • Four-wheel disc brakes
    • Active Noise Cancellation
    • Standard Cruise Control 

    Additional new features on most trims include push-button start, automatic climate control, wireless phone charging and more.  '

    Break it down by trim and other available features include:

    • LS and LT - additional bright trim on LT. 17-inch steel wheels are standard on LS and 17-inch machined aluminum wheels are standard on LT.
    • RS trims - Trax's sportiest design with additional exterior trim accents, as well as a unique grille with an embedded RS badge. The 1RS trim includes unique 18-inch machine-faced aluminum wheels and the 2RS features 19-inch machine-faced aluminum wheels.
    • The new ACTIV has a monochromatic look including titanium chrome accents and an aggressive-looking rear skid plate motif. It also features unique black 18-inch wheels.


    All trims share the same powertrain - a 1.2-liter turbocharged inline-three engine with a GM-estimated 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. It's mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Chevy makes note of the turbo engine saying it contributes to "excellent on-demand power, particularly for passing maneuvers and on-ramp acceleration."

    New Design 

    The new Trax is longer, lower and wider than the current generation model and Chevy says its new athletic, muscular design is inspired by the Chevrolet Blazer.  Blazer-inspired headlamps feature all-new LED lighting elements that include Chevy-signature high-eye LED daytime running lamps.

    “The bold exterior and tech-forward interior design of the all-new Trax redefines what an entry-level vehicle can be,” said Phil Zak, executive design director, Global Chevrolet. “It demonstrates that modern, stylish design doesn’t have to come at a premium.”  

    Each trim has specific design cues, including specific grille designs and wheels, as well as unique décor.

    Chevy says the Trax’s larger dimensions give it a better, more composed ride and handling characteristics compared to the current model.   Inside, the 11-inch greater length and 2-inch greater width than the current model translates into greater roominess and cargo capacity, including 3 inches more rear legroom, which increases comfort for rear-seat passengers, and maximum cargo capacity that increases by nearly 12%.

    Cabin Technology

    Chevy went for an airy vibe in the cabin. It features sweeping lines and light along with a low instrument panel. There's a tech aspect to the design as well. Chevy says some elements take inspirations from other recent Chevy performance vehicle designs, including signature round vents and more.

    LS and 1RS trims feature an 8-inch-diagonal infotainment color touchscreen, while LT, 2RS and ACTIV have an 11-inch-diagonal infotainment color touchscreen and an 8-inch-diagonal driver information center.

    • 2RS features red accents on the seats and a racing-inspired flat-bottom steering wheel
    • ACTIV features Evotex seats with yellow accents
