It seemed that the history of the Chevrolet Trax was in the past, but surprisingly, General Motors Mexico decided to revive the name to bring Mexico and the entire American continent to the 2024 Chevy Trax. That in this case has nothing to do with the previous model that was fired a few years ago. It is a completely new development and has the mission of conquering the segment of compact access SUVs, having such strong rivals as Toyota Corolla Cross, Mazda CX-30 and Volkswagen Taos.
We already knew it, it was first presented in China
A few weeks ago we talked about the Chevrolet Seeker, which is actually this same SUV, although with a better-known name for our region. In this case, it was presented first for China and would be assembled by SAIC-GM, the same association that gives us the Cavalier and Onix, for example. Until now, the brand has not confirmed if it will arrive in Mexico from China or if it will do so from another country, such as South Korea, as was the case with the Spark at the time.
Visually it’s a design that goes very well with the language of truly American Chevrolet models. Nothing to do with the aesthetics of models like Groove or Captiva for example, the reason is that this model is built on the platform VSS-F of the brand, which it shares with the Trail Blazer that is sold in the United States and other markets. This platform is designed by General Motors, so it promises better ride quality, handling, comfort and safety, comparable to that of other more complete models.
Its image details focus on having a well-detailed and contrasted front end, with the tendency to keep daytime running lights at the top, while the main headlights go a little lower. Unlike the Seeker, there are slight changes to the lower fascia and chrome trim at the front center. According to the variant you can carry 17″ and up to 19″ wheels, LED headlights and skulls, panoramic roof
In the rear, it has very stylized skulls and a somewhat bulging trunk lid. With 4.5 meters long, It is placed in the group of access compact SUVs, that is, with rivals such as Toyota Corolla Cross, Volkswagen Taos, Mazda CX-30, Chirey Tiggo 7 Pro and company. It should be noted that its image may change slightly according to the version, since it will have some traditional ones, others more focused on the elegant and another one with sports aesthetic tints, the traditional RS with more details darkened for this purpose.
great team level
The interior of Trax 2024 will be composed of a design with many shapes and elements that place it as something more outgoing than the average of its competition. It will carry things like: digital instrument cluster, 11″ touch screen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The system OnStar from GM, it will also be in its range and will allow us to have things like the emergency call or WiFi connection point. We’ll also see things like dual-zone automatic air conditioning, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a wireless cell phone charger.
Speaking of safety, Chevrolet promises a high level with advanced assistance such as autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane maintenance, automatic high beams, among others.
An engine designed for efficiency
In the model that was presented in China, a 4-cylinder turbo mechanics with 1.5 liters was chosen. However, for our continent, including Mexico, the brand has opted for a motor Turbo of 3 cylinders of 1.2 liters. It will produce 137 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.. Which at the same time will be tied to a 6-speed automatic transmission and will only have front-wheel drive.
Arrives in Mexico in 2023
Chevrolet announced that this SUV will come to the United States and Mexico in 2023. However, they did not reveal an exact date, the prices or versions that we will see directly in our country. They just make it clear that closer to launch they’ll share all that other data about their latest SUV.
