The Chevrolet Trax belongs to the sub compact crossover segment, a section which sees a lot of competition from manufacturer all over the world primarily because the size is the perfect one for almost every middle sized household. As such, Chevrolet is desperately looking at introducing the all new version of its friendly car released 3 years back. With the improvements, the car giant hopes to get back in the limelight that it has been refused for some time in this sector, so they are planning to release the all-new 2017 Chevy Trax.
2017 Chevy Trax: Exterior and Interior Changes
The 2017 Chevy Trax is looking to completely reinvent itself with bolder and classier look. Furthermore, with the new version, Chevrolet is looking to address an issue that most of its customers have been complaining about: interior space. The new model is expected to be slightly larger in size while maintaining the aesthetic aspect ratio needed for a subcompact SUV. Overall, this slight increase is expected to result in better leg space and more overall room. Overall styling has apparently been looked into as well, with redesigned head and tail lights which will likely feature LED and Xenon lights for better visibility. While better material has been reported to being used for the body and the bumpers, there has been no confirmation on exactly what. Experts feel that this would most likely be carbon fiber to keep the body weight down. Also on the works is a wider wheelbase and a better aerodynamic body for better efficiency.
Expect premium leather upholstery on the inside. The 2017 Chevy Trax will not compromise on quality for cost. In fact, better accents in leather and aluminium and a premium soft touch material will be used abundantly for providing the overall business look. The most prominent change however, will be the inclusion of hi-tech features like the MyLink Infotainment, Siri Eyes free and BringGo.
2017 Chevy Trax: Engine Specs
The 2017 Chevy Trax is looking to get its very own 1.4-liter EcoTec Turbocharged engine. Unveiled recently, this piece of machinery is more eco-friendly and powerful than almost anything else in its class, according to Chevrolet. Considering that the whole thing will be rigged to 6 speed automatic transmission system capable of providing a power output of around 150 lb-ft, even the most hard core of customers in this segment will agree that it is enough. Although the unit is not renowned for off road capabilities, you can always opt for the all-wheel drive version for an extra of $1500.
2017 Chevy Trax: Price and Arrival
The 2017 Chevrolet Trax will be available in 3 trim variants: the base LS version along with the upgraded LT version and the high end LTZ version. However, be ready to pay in premium if you really wish to opt for the higher end versions. For the base version, expect a starting price of around $26,000. While this is not confirmed, most critics feel that any higher price will out the manufacturer at a competitive disadvantage. Be prepared to wait till early 2017 at the least though, if you want to get one.
