Although it has been on the lineup for just north of a decade, the Chevy Trax hasn’t exactly established a legacy for itself just yet. Not the way some of its siblings have, like the long-lasting Equinox or iconic Blazer. This year Chevrolet is taking steps to correct that by redesigning the vehicle for its second generation. The all-new 2024 Chevy Trax will soon be available right here in Fort Scott, Kansas, with a host of updates and enhancements inside and out.
A lot of entry-level vehicles around the automotive market withhold certain technologies and features that are reserved for more premium vehicles. Some might offer these features, but only in packages or other upgrades. The all-new Trax, on the other hand, offers several great standard features that you might not find in other vehicles. These include an 8” infotainment system (or 11” in higher trims), Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, LED headlamps, 17”, 18” or 19” wheels and Active Noise Cancellation.
As an entry-level, subcompact crossover, the Trax does not need to offer a multitude of powertrain options, nor does it need to offer a ton of power. Beneath the hood of every 2024 Chevy Trax lies a 1.2L EcoTec turbocharged 3-cylinder engine capable of generating 137 horsepower alongside 162 pound-feet of torque, which is tethered to a six-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle is available in five trim levels, including LS, 1RS, LT, 2RS and the new top-of-the-line ACTIV trim level.
The all-new 2024 Trax will feature Chevy Safety Assist as a standard feature. Chevy Safety Assist is a suite of six advanced driver-assistive safety technologies. The suite includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, IntelliBeam Auto High-Beam Control and Following Distance Indicator. Additional features are available, such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert and more.
After taking the 2023 model year off, we weren’t sure the Chevy Trax would be returning to the lineup. Now that we’ve seen the all-new, next-generation version of the subcompact crossover, we’re absolutely stoked that it is. If you think you might be interested in one for yourself, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us right here at Briggs Fort Scott.
