Introducing the new 2015 Chevrolet Trax
Chevrolet just announced that it will be adding another vehicle to its lineup – to add to the current 15+ other cars, trucks, and SUVs. It’s called the Chevrolet Trax, and it’s just adorable. Currently, the Equinox is the smallest available crossover by Chevrolet… until the Trax hits lots, which will allow consumers to drive an SUV but maneuver and save at the pump as they would if they were driving something like a Cruze!
The Chevrolet Trax is most comparable to the Buick Encore, with similar styling, size, and… okay, it’s pretty much exactly the same. But there’s no doubt that the Trax will have a much lower price tag (based on the fact that Chevrolet’s and Buick’s comparable third-row SUVs – the Traverse and Enclave – are over $8,000 different in price.)
So what’s so cool about it?
Firstly, the all-new Trax will be available in 10 different colors (shown below), including some new introductions that have not yet been used on any other Chevy like orange rock metallic, blaze red, and deep expresso metallic (which looks like some delicious dark chocolate.) The exterior also features Chevrolet’s signature dual-port grill, swept-back headlights, and available chrome accents that will surely turn heads wherever you go.
The Trax is designed to make a road trip as comfortable as a 5-block commute with available 6-way power driver’s seat which you can choose to have come heated since we’ve found out that something like the polar vortex can happen. There will also be 15 available storage areas, including a two-tier glove box and an array of cubbies, consoles, and cup holders. It will have a spot for every little piece of everything that likes to fall in between your seat and the center console. With the 60/40 split-folding rear seats and fold-flat front passenger seat (←WHAT?!), the options are endless. All that adds up to a total of 48.4 cubit feet of cargo space.
Another treat that the Trax has in store is Chevrolet MyLink – standard on all models. It will also offer available 4G LTE connectivity through OnStar that will make your Trax a mobile hotspot, giving you a superhero-strength signal, and allow you to easily connect 7 smart devices to the internet.
Just because the Trax is tiny, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have power. The 1.4L ECOTEC engine is turbocharged (standard), which increases power generation while simultaneously enhancing efficiency. And its available on-demand electronically-controlled AWD system provides extra traction and maneuverability when you need it. When you don’t need it, the system automatically shifts to FWD to make sure you’re rolling as efficiently as possible.
The all-new Trax will be available at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet later this year. To get more information or updates on the vehicle and its arrival, call us at (910)798-2650 or (888)261-0090, or just fill out the contact form below to send us an email.
