The all-new 2024 Chevy Trax was official unveiled back in October 2022. As the first model year of the all-new second generation, the 2024 Trax brings a bevy of transformations, including a brand-new exterior and interior, along with a new architecture and powertrain. Now, we’re getting our first look at the 2024 Chevy Trax Activ in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
This particular example is finished in Summit While paint (color code GAZ). As we mentioned above, it’s outfitted in the Activ trim level, which serves as the range-topping trim.
As a reminder, here’s the 2024 Chevy Trax trim level hierarchy:
Up front, the new Trax gets LED signature daytime running lights (RPO code T7E) and LED headlamps (T4L) in the dual-layer headlight arrangement found on other recently-introduced Chevy crossovers such as the Blazer and Trailblazer crossovers, along with the refreshed Traverse. Additionally, the a body-color grille insert that’s unique to the Activ trim, along with front and rear fascia inserts (VEV), as well a black Chevy Bow Tie front-and-center.
Moving over to the side, we see high gloss black mirror caps (EWE) and black roof rails (V59), as well as body-colored door handles. As for rollers, this Trax is rocking 18-inch Black-painted aluminum wheels (RSZ), which are wrapped in 225/55R18 all-season tires (QAI).
Out back, the exhaust tip has been tucked under the rear so as not to be visible. Additionally, we see another black Bow Tie, taillights with horizontal spears, faux vents below said taillights, a chrome rear bumper and a roof-mounted antenna.
In case you missed it, the 2024 Chevy Trax represents the beginning of an all-new, second generation for the subcompact crossover. The latest Trax boasts a longer, lower and wider exterior than the preceding model, resulting in three additional inches of rear legroom and a 12 percent increase in cargo capacity.
On the technology front, LS and 1RS trim levels get an eight-inch diagonal infotainment screen as standard, while LT, 2RS, and Activ trims receive an 11-inch screen. Furthermore, the 2024 Trax is granted with other goodies like Active Noise Cancelation and cruise control. Adaptive Cruise Control is offered on most trims, including the Activ.
Under the hood, all models of the 2024 Chevy Trax are powered by the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, which churns out at 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Output is directed through the GM six-speed automatic transmission and put to the ground exclusively through the front wheels, as no AWD option will be offered.
