Chevy Trax Running At 16 Days Supply As Of October 20220
National inventory for the Chevy Trax crossover was running at 16 days supply as of the beginning of October, GM Authority has learned from sources familiar with GM’s inventory situation. That’s up from the nine days suppy in August and 10 days supply in July. A 60-day supply is considered optimal in the U.S. auto industry.
Back in March, GM Authority exclusively reported that the automaker was dropping the current-generation Chevy Trax crossover from its lineup after the 2022 model year. However, GM subsequently confirmed it would release an all-new Chevy Trax later this year and finally debuted the next-generation 2024 Chevy Trax earlier this month as Chevy’s new entry-level crossover.
Sales of the Chevy Trax were down 47 percent during the first three quarters of the year with 21,882 deliveries. But even as the current, dated model is being phased out, it still posted a three percent share and ranked 14th among 20 entries in the crowded mainstream subcompact crossover segment.

Outside, the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax incorporates the Bow Tie brand’s latest ICE-based design language, taking after the Chevy Blazer crossover. The latest Trax boasts new exterior dimensions that are longer, lower, and wider than the preceding model. Up front is a set of LED headlamps, while the five trim levels on offer – LS, 1RS, LT, 2RS, and Activ – each include their own unique styling bits, from wheels to grille treatments.
Inside, the new 2024 Trax is roomier than the preceding model, and offers more safety features and tech, including six advanced safety and driver awareness technologies via Chevy Safety Assist, and a standard 8-inch diagonal infotainment screen. LT, 2RS, and Activ trims get an 11-inch screen. Further onboard tech includes Active Noise Cancelation and cruise control, while Adaptive Cruise Control is offered on most trims.
As for the power spec, the 2024 Trax is motivated by the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, the same powerplant found in the Chevy Trailblazer LS and LT trim levels. Output is rated at 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque and paired to the GM six-speed automatic transmission. Only front-wheel drive is available while the outgoing model offers an all-wheel-drive option.
Pricing for the 2024 Chevy Trax starts at $21,495 for the base-level LS, rising as high as $24,995 for the 2RS and Activ trim levels, destination freight charge included. Notably, the new 2023 Trax costs less than the current, outgoing 2022 model.
