The 2022 Chevy Trax will not be available with a flat-folding front passenger seat – unlike previous versions of the subcompact crossover, which offered the flat-folding seat as standard.
The flat-folding front passenger seat in the Chevy Trax (RPO D7P) previously came standard in all trim-levels of the subcompact crossover. The absence of this little-known feature will go unnoticed by many buyers, but some might miss the ability to fold the front passenger seat flat in the Trax, as it could free up more interior cargo space to move particularly long and/or bulky items.
In place of the flat-folding seat will be a traditional non-folding front passenger seat (RPO E91) that will also come with a seatback map pocket. The flat-folding seat did not have a seatback map pocket, so while users will no longer be able to fold the seat flat to gain some more cargo space, they will at least benefit from the extra storage pocket.
Apart from small changes like these, the 2022 Chevy Trax will remain mostly unchanged from the 2021 model year. Power comes from a turbocharged 1.4L LUV inline four-cylinder gas engine, which is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel-drive or optional all-wheel-drive. The crossover also sticks with its familiar GM Gamma II platform and will retain the same exterior styling, as well.
GM has not released official pricing for the 2022 Chevy Trax. We’re not expecting a major deviation from the price of the 2021 model year Trax, however, which starts at $21,400 for the base LS trim-level with FWD. This price includes the $995 destination freight charge, as well.
The 2022 Chevy Trax will be built at the GM Bupyeong Assembly plant in Bupyeong-gu, Incheon, South Korea alongside the related 2022 Buick Encore.
