This stylish and versatile little crossover SUV is available now, so why not test drive one today? Continue reading to learn more about the sleek new Trax from Chevrolet!
The biggest news for Chevrolet's recent newcomer to the subcompact crossover market is that it returns for 2017 with a fresh face; all of the front sheet metal has been redesigned, giving the 2017 Trax a sleeker look that fits in well with its other recently redesigned Chevy stablemates. The large, new grille gives this small crossover a commanding presence from straight ahead; the bi-level grille and front air dam let in plenty of fresh air to keep this little sport ute cool. Restyled headlamps feature a striking design that is reminiscent of other small Chevrolet models like the new Cruze and Volt. The 2017 Trax Premier trim adds LED lighting and sporty 18-inch aluminum wheels.
Step inside the cockpit of the 2017 Trax and you will find a restyled instrument panel, highlighted by a sweeping upper dashboard that enhances the sense of interior space and also sits atop the new instrument gauges and digital info display. A new 7-inch color touchscreen is available and is home to Chevrolet's smooth-operating MyLink infotainment system, which provides enhanced connectivity, like the latest versions of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Just like most recent Chevrolet vehicles, the 2017 Trax CUV also offers 4G LTE technology, complete with a Wi-Fi hot spot.
The new Chevrolet Trax comes equipped with Chevrolet's highly efficient 1.4-liter turbocharged ECOTEC engine. This small inline 4-cylinder turbo engine produces 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque, and routes its power through a 6-speed automatic transmission. Power can be sent to all four wheel via an available all-wheel drive (AWD) system, which is ready to provide extra confidence and traction under any road conditions. The advanced AWD system can shift power back and forth between AWD and FWD; for instance, when added traction isn't needed at all four wheels, the system transitions back to FWD to maximize fuel efficiency. Even with the stability and control of AWD, expect to return impressive fuel economy. No matter which 2017 Trax model you select, you will be surprised by how much fun this fuel-sipping subcompact crossover is to drive!
