The popular Chevrolet Trax small crossover has made waves all over the world, but has so far avoided the U.S. market, though manages to flank the region with availability in both Canada and Mexico. Why it has yet to enter the ‘Merican market is a head scratcher, especially when considering its sibling — the Buick Encore — currently sells here, and sells well.
There is also no Chevrolet small crossover in the U.S. market, with the mid-sized, long-in-tooth Equinox being the smallest CUV customers can find under the Bowtie banner. Indeed, it’s easy to see the appeal of a more affordable CUV in the brand’s lineup, but we’ve heard before that the Trax just “won’t work” in America for reasons ranging from tooling and financial reasons to simply protecting Equinox sales. That said, we stand by the thought that Chevrolet would only see an uptick in sales by offering a new crossover. If you agree with us, or not, let us know in our latest poll.
