Officially unveiled back in October 2022, the 2024 Chevy Trax is set to introduce an all-new generation of the Bow Tie brand’s entry-level crossover. While GM Authority recently covered when production would roughly begin, we’ve now learned the exact start of production date.
Sources close to the matter tell us that the start of regular production (SORP) of the next-gen Chevy Trax is currently scheduled for February 13th, 2023. This means that the first units will begin to arrive on dealership lots in Spring 2023.
For those who may be unaware, the 2024 Chevy Trax is a complete overhaul over the first-generation model. This includes an all-new exterior, with proportions now longer, lower and wider than the preceding model. Up front is a new set of dual-tier headlights, with the squinty top row serving as the Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), while the actual headlamps are located just below. The profile of the 2024 Trax is designed to mimic that of the 2019 and newer Chevy Blazer, which makes gives it a sleek and modern look.
Moving to the interior, the 2024 Trax offers an extra three inches of rear legroom and a 12 percent increase in cargo room over the first-gen model. On top of that, the all-new Trax is available with a slew of safety features, including multiple advanced safety and driver awareness technologies via Chevy Safety Assist. Additionally, Active Noise Cancelation and Adaptive Cruise Control is available on most trims, while lower trims feature an eight-inch diagonal infotainment screen and LT, 2RS and Activ trims get an 11-inch screen.
In regards to powertrain, the 2024 Trax features turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, rated at 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. This powerplant pairs with the GM six-speed automatic transmission, feeding the front wheels exclusively.
Under the skin, the 2024 Trax rides on the GM VSS-F vehicle set.
