Sixty-six other markets worldwide have enjoyed the Chevrolet Trax subcompact crossover since its global introduction in 2013, and finally, it comes to the United States as a 2015 model.
General Motors recently announced the MSRP of the 2015 Chevrolet Trax, and it’s pretty darn agreeable: $20,995 including destination fee. For another $1,500, you can upgrade to the AWD model – available with any of the three trim levels – making this the least expensive ticket into Chevrolet AWD performance.
The same turbocharged 1.4 liter as found in the Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic will be standard, and the subcompact crossover shares its platform with the Buick Encore, along with the same approximate headroom and cargo space. The EPA pegs the 2015 Chevrolet Trax at 26/34 mpg city and highway, respectively, though that’s presumably just for the FWD model.
The 2015 Chevrolet Trax is General Motors’ seventh subcompact launch in the last four years, and despite the easy to swallow price tag, does come with some first-class amenities: OnStar 4G LTE with mobile hotspot, Siri Eyes Free connectivity for iPhone, remote start, and of course, an absurd breadth of different seating configurations.
