General Motors unveiled the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax in October, pulling the sheets on a fresh-faced model for the entry-level crossover segment. Interestingly, GM President Mark Reuss has some very high praise for the new Trax, calling it one of the “finest entry-level” Chevys in many years.
The fact that GM President Reuss is praising the new 2024 Chevy Trax certainly isn’t all that surprising. That said, the level to which Reuss is praising the new crossover is definitely noteworthy.
During a presentation given at the recent GM Investor Day event, GM President Reuss unveiled the automaker’s upcoming product roadmap, while also saying the following about the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax:
“This is something we’re getting to launch here, obviously, and this about a $19,000 price point that is profitable. This is probably in my career, and maybe beyond that, the finest entry-level Chevrolet that this company, and I think the market, has seen in many years,” Reuss said.
Calling the 2024 Chevy Trax the “finest entry-level Chevrolet” in many years is high praise indeed. Reuss went on to say:
“Drove it the other day, incredibly useful, but also very youthful, it’s sort of a white space for us. It’s not really an SUV or a car, but our dealers are extremely excited about this, in high volume in that part of the market for us as an entry-level Chevrolet.”
In terms of styling, the 2024 Chevy Trax incorporates similar ICE-based design language as the Chevy Blazer crossover, with a large central grille, hard angles, and thin upper lighting. The primary headlamps are located lower in the corners of the fascia. In terms of exterior dimensions, the new Trax is also lower, longer, and wider than the previous model. Wheel sizing includes 17-, 18-, and 19-inch options.
Inside the cabin, the 2024 Chevy Trac features a variety of safety and tech features, with a standard 8-inch infotainment screen, and an 11-inch screen equipped higher in the range. Other notable features include Active Noise Cancelation and the Chevy Safety Assist tech suite.
Making the go is the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, which is rated at 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Output is sent to the front wheels by way of the GM six-speed automatic transmission, while under the body panels, the 2024 Chevy Trax rides on the GM VSS-F vehicle set.
The 2024 Chevy Trax will hit production in February of the 2023 calendar year, per exclusive GM Authority coverage.
