The 2021 Chevrolet Trax features various minor changes and updates, including the addition of the turbocharged 1.4L I4 LE2 gas engine, which replaces the turbo-four LUV engine of the same displacement. Additionally, the 2021 Trax adds four new exterior colors to its palette: Midnight Blue Metallic, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, Shadow Gray Metallic, and Crimson Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Crimson hue.
Assigned color code GFM and touch-up paint code WA-294F, Crimson Metallic is the only true red color available for the 2021 Chevy Trax, following the deletion of the Cajun Red Tintcoat color for the 2021 model year. The Crimson color appears to be a darker version of the previously offered color. The Black Cherry Metallic color is another reddish option but it is much darker than the Crimson hue.
The new color is one of seven metallic paint options for the 2021 model. Notably, three of the four new exterior colors are metallic paint options and one is a tricoat option.
The new Crimson Metallic color is included in the base price of the 2021 Chevy Trax. It is available with all interior color combinations and trim levels. It is worth noting the Premier trim level was deleted for the 2021 model year, leaving only the LS and LT trim levels for the Trax. Additionally, the Jet Black with Brandy interior combination was deleted for the 2021 model year.
2021 Chevrolet Trax Trim Levels:
- LS (1LS)
- LT (1LT)
2021 Chevrolet Trax Interior Color Combinations:
- Jet Black
- Jet Black with Light Ash Gray
