Just two days ago, we showed you that General Motors teased the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Tracker. Now, Chevy’s new subcompact crossover SUV has been completely leaked in China.
Today, the country’s authorities inadvertently revealed the new model from SAIC-GM, allowing us to see the new Tracker’s exterior design, along with the specifications for the Chinese-market model.
As shown in the spy photos and GM’s teaser image, the new 2020 Chevrolet Tracker adopts the latest iteration of Chevy’s design language and includes some elements already seen in several other new models. This is especially true in the front, where the headlights, grilles, and bumper cover treatment are similar to those of the new Orlando. Meanwhile, the bright element that connects the upper part of the grille with the headlights is a characteristic introduced on the new 2019 Blazer.
Meanwhile, the design of the side and rear end have a unique appearance. On the sides, the high beltline and pronounced wheel arches stand out. The lower section of the doors is adorned with a black plastic, protecting the space from debris flying off the wheels while giving the vehicle a tougher, more robust appearance. The rear end, meanwhile, has a relatively simple design with horizontal lights positioned just below the rear window.
Compared to the current, first-generation Chevy Trax, the new 2020 Chevrolet Tracker is 0.9 inches longer, an inch wider and almost two inches lower. The wheelbase is up by 0.6 inches to 101.2 inches.
Under the hood sits a turbo-charged, 1.0L three-cylinder engine making a maximum 115 horsepower. It is expected to be paired with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. In addition, it is possible that the range-topping version will feature another engine that’s more powerful.

The 2020 Chevrolet Tracker could make its official debut at a special event in China in March. It will be one of the first in a series of high-volume GM vehicles for developing markets.
About The 2020 Chevrolet Tracker
The 2020 Chevrolet Tracker will be a new offering in the small crossover utility vehicle segment. Note that this is not the next-gen Chevy Trax, which could be renamed to TrailBlazer. Instead, the Tracker is expected to be offered exclusively in developing markets.
The model rides on the new GM GEM platform and is assigned the JBUC project code. As such, the Chevrolet Tracker will no longer be mechanically related to the Chevy Trax, which is the case today. Instead, the future Chevrolet Trax will ride on the GM VSS-F platform (vehicle set).
Despite being roughly the same size, the new Chevrolet Tracker will be positioned below the Trax in terms of feature/content and price, enabling it to improve Chevrolet’s competitiveness in developing markets such as China, Mexico and South America.
The Chevrolet Tracker will be produced at least in the following two plants:
