If you know anything about Chevrolet, you may know that they have quite the amazing array of vehicles available on the market. This includes the Bolt, Impala and now, the Trax.
“What quite is the Trax?” You ask?
It’s a crossover which could have seen better luck. After all, it’s cohort car Buick Encore gets chopped. This is in spite of the model being operated on the same platform. Chevrolet Trax is quite a necessary vehicle to follow, as Chevy is going to reveal a brand new model, of the electric persuasion. While the current model will end production later this year of 2022, the newer crossover will begin production in early 2023.
And hopefully this is a better circumstance for the Chevrolet. As they are in deep waters. To give a recap, Chevrolet was only able to move about 42,950 units of the Trax in 2021, being down from the 59.9% of the model’s original 106,299 deliveries within the fateful year of 2020. Furthermore, the Trax had a volume of about 5,801 units, in itself a 65.8 percent drop from the original 16,955 vehicles within the first quarter of 2021. With Buick discontinuing the Encore after 2022’s model year released, things are starting to look pretty desperate for Chevrolet’s Trax.
But fear not!
Chevrolet was smart enough to update the Trax just in time for the 2021 model year with a brand new 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with about 153 horsepower cpable of about 114 kilowatts and about 177 pound-feet (equating to 240 Newton-meters of torque!) Other updates to the Chevrolet Trax includes fuel injections of the direct kind versus the less superior and poor-choice port injections.
The new generation of Chevrolet Trax is truly revolutionary.
Without destination charge, the newest Chevrolet Trax will hit the dealerships at $21,400. However, it’s left to be seen how General Motors will be able to further entice the masses when it comes to separating the Trax from the Trailblazer. Not to mention the Vehicle Speed Sensor, definitely seen before in the Trailblazer and the Encore GX. Additionally, the Chevrolet Trax will gear car buyers up for the thrill of a lifetime as it comes with 1.2 and 1.3-liter turbo three-pot mills, conveniently found nestled in between a front-wheel-drive type of transmission or and AWD automatic tranny device.
If you could believe it, the previous Chevrolet Trax sounded a little lame in the world of Electric Vehicles. Only producing about 138 horsepower, equating to 103 kilowatts and 148 lb-ft of torque. However, it’s common knowledge that all legendary models had to try and try again before getting it right. Who knows? 2023 might be the year that Chevrolet makes “tracks” over the industry with their Chevy… Trax.
