All-New 2024 Chevy Trax Announced In Canada14
Shortly after revealing the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax on October 12th in Detroit, General Motors announced Chevrolet‘s upcoming entry-level crossover in Canada.
The automaker confirmed the arrival of the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax in the country, which along with Mexico was one of the first countries in the world where the Bow Tie brand began selling the first-generation Trax in late 2012. The totally redesigned 2024 Trax will hit the Canadian market simultaneously with the US market in the spring of 2023, starting at $21,699 excluding the destination freight charge that should amount to $1,995.
“The all-new Trax has everything you need and nothing you don’t,” said Chevrolet Global Vice President, Scott Bell, in a press release. “More space. More features. More style. This is an entry-level vehicle that will surprise and delight customers with its value and plays a critical role as the gateway into the Chevrolet brand,” he added.
Notably, the all-new 2024 second-generation Chevy Trax is basically the same compact-size global crossover that first made its world debut in China as the all-new Chevy Seeker, but with a different name and a few configuration tweaks specific to North America. As such, this new generation of the crossover is larger in all dimensions than the previous Trax and even the subcompact Chevy Trailblazer. As in the US, the Canadian-market Trax will be equipped with the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH engine, matched to the GM six-speed automatic transmission and a front-wheel drivetrain.
As such, the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax represents a notable game-changer in Chevy’s strategy to lead the entry-level crossover category in North America, offering a larger model at a lower price, aimed at buyers seeking the practicality of a compact car and the versatility of a utility vehicle. Additionally, the 2024 Trax debuts the brand’s latest design evolution while including class-leading technology and safety features.
The totally redesigned 2024 Chevy Trax is scheduled to go on sale in the United States and Canada sometime in the spring of next year, with an aggressive pricing strategy that’s even lower than that of the outgoing Trax. Although GM has not yet made it official, 2024 Trax units for North America are expected to be manufactured in South Korea as GM Authority exclusively announced earlier this year.

IIRC, the last Trax received complaints about the ride quality. I’m curious to know if they managed to improve it, although I recognize it’s hard to improve the ride of any subcompact.
It’s a substantially longer wheelbase; that alone is going to do wonders for the ride quality.
As a salesman for Chevrolet, I am very excited to see this vehicle in my showroom and on my lot! However, I personally despise the name “Trax”. I wish it was called the “Seeker” or the “Tracker” here as well. It sounds much better and modern, especially considering there is honestly no resemblance to the previous generation Trax.
As a lifelong Chevy owner I love this. I do agree with you about the name though. Tracker would have been a great name.
Why will people buy a trailblazer now?
AWD and more available interior features.
Because this offers a cheaper way to Chevrolet for those who don’t care about or need the extras. I pray the build quality will be good and people give it a chance.
I like it! It will sell well at our Chevy Dealers. Way better exterior design. I like the interior design, and it appears to be a straight forward design. Nice to see a functional large information screen. Way better than current tired cheap old Trax.
I agree with Iggy it needs a better more stylish name. I would vote for Seeker! In closing it is a welcome addition for first time entry level consumers. 👍👍
Trax looks good, may be a winner.
GMC Granite on it’s way??
No All Wheel Drive is a huge miss. Very disappointed in GM
I think you may be missing the purpose of this vehicle… think of it as the new Cruze, or Cruze Crossover. Every other vehicle besides the Malibu in GM’s lineup has AWD or 4WD capability. I live in a part of Canada where AWD is “necessary” (I drive a Malibu where FWD works just fine in the winters, but I also learned how to drive in a ’98 Malibu in northern Ontario). Outside of the snow belt in the US, people don’t need or buy AWD/4WD.
So for a small percentage of people in the grand scheme of things, they will be pushed to buy a slightly more expensive model in the Trailblazer/Encore GX with AWD or an Equinox. But for EVERYONE else, this is a very nice, stylish, INEXPENSIVE, and fuel-efficient entry to GM (this will be a massive seller I bet for people under 35 and recent grads) that will hopefully be of a good standard to earn their long-term business.
