With the exception of the Silverado pickup truck, Chevrolet has replaced the LTZ trim level with the Premier trim in North America, and it’s now doing the same in South America. The 2018 Tracker (the Trax in the U.S.) is the first model to get the new designation, with the rest of the bow tie brand’s model range to follow. However, there’s an exception to a few models, since it seems that a few local-market models won’t get the new designation.
Models Getting The Premier Trim Level
Here are the models we expect will adopt the Premier trim level in place of LTZ in South America:
- Tracker (confirmed)
Models Not Getting The Premier Trim Level
We expect that the following models will not adopt the new Premier trim:
Instead, it seems that these models will continue with the LTZ designation, as they are specific to the South American market. In that regard, it would appear that Chevy has decided to delineate the nomenclature by giving globally-sourced models the Premier trim while leaving local/market-specific models with the LTZ moniker.
The Camaro is yet another exception to the Premier/LTZ trim replacement, and that’s because it does not have a Premier designation in any market. The perennial Chevy sports car is offered exclusively in the SS trim level in South America.
