After bidding goodbye to the first generation following the 2022 model year, Chevrolet went back to the drawing board with its smallest SUV, the Trax. Fast forward to 2024, and the automaker has unveiled a revamped Trax model that’s notably larger. The reimagined second-generation Trax borrows from Chevrolet’s diverse SUV lineup, sporting a powertrain adopted from the compact Trailblazer and design elements inspired by the midsize Blazer. Dealerships like the Spruce Pine Chevrolet GMC dealer offer the 2024 Chevrolet Trax at a price point lower than its predecessor, marking it as one of the most budget-conscious new crossovers in the marketplace.
This new generation of the Trax emerges as a broader SUV, endowed with a myriad of standard features. According to the Spruce Pine Chevrolet GMC dealership, in comparison to the outgoing model, the Trax has gone through a considerable transformation, boasting a longer wheelbase that provides additional rear legroom and a generous cargo area. In an unexpected move, Chevrolet has expanded the Trax lineup to five trims, a substantial increase from the previous two.
The automotive media is impressed with the new 2024 Chevy Trax. Kelley Blue Book writes: “Skipping the 2023 model year entirely, the 2024 Chevrolet Trax roars back onto the subcompact SUV stage, totally redesigned inside and out. Longer and wider than the previous Trax, it provides more passenger and cargo space. ... (The) Trax should please buyers looking for an affordable, entry-level crossover with impressive passenger and cargo space.”
The 2024 Trax is available in five trims: LS, 1RS, LT, 2RS, and Activ. The Trax is powered by a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that puts out 137 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox. All trims get front-wheel drive. EPA-estimated fuel economy is rated at 28 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.*
The 2024 Chevy Trax showcases a completely overhauled interior. The infotainment screen is angled toward the driver, and climate controls are positioned within easy reach. Thanks to the Trax’s longer wheelbase, there are now three more inches of rear leg room and a more spacious cargo area that provides a whopping 25.67 cubic feet. The driving position is now lower, significantly enhancing the ride. Depending on the model, premium features such as heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a sunroof, and remote start add an element of luxury to this otherwise practical cabin.
The basic LS trim comes equipped with LED headlights, 7-inch steel wheels, remote keyless entry, a six-way manually adjustable driver’s seat, a four-way manually adjustable front passenger seat, cloth upholstery, an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with wireless connectivity, an audio setup with four speakers, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, satellite radio, and two USB ports.
Standard safety features include automatic high beams, forward collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking, a lane-keeping system, and lane departure warning.
