The 2021 Chevy 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: Crimson Metallic, Shadow Gray Metallic, Midnight Blue Metallic, and Iridescent Pearl Tricoat. Here’s our first look at the new Iridescent hue.
Assigned color code GP5 and touch-up paint code WA-485B, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat is the only tricoat option available for the 2021 Chevy Trax. The new hue is one of two white paint colors, with Summit White being the other. Notably, three of the four new-for-2021 exterior colors are metallic paint options and one tricoat option.
The new Iridescent Pearl Tricoat color is not included in the base price of the 2021 Chevy Trax, it adds an additional cost of $645 to the vehicle’s price. It is available with all interior color combinations but is only offered on the LT trim level.
It is worth noting the Premier trim level was deleted for the 2021 model year, leaving only the LS and LT trims for the Trax. Additionally, the Jet Black with Brandy interior combination was deleted for the 2021 model year.
