2024 Chevy Trax Production Under Way8
GM unveiled the 2024 Chevy Trax last October, debuting an all-new third generation for the crossover. Now, production of the next-gen 2024 Chevy Trax is officially underway at the GM Bupyeong plant in South Korea.
Late last month, GM Authority was the first to report that the start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 Chevy Trax would get underway on February 13th, 2023. The first units are expected to arrive in dealers this coming spring.
Compared to the second-gen Chevy Trax, the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax features a long list of updates and changes, starting with new exterior dimensions that are longer, lower, and wider than the previous model. The exterior also boasts all-new styling that incorporates the brand’s latest ICE-based cues, with inspiration from the Chevy Blazer crossover. Wheel sizing includes 17-, 18-, and 19-inch options, while each of the five trim levels (LS, 1RS, LT, 2RS, and Activ) are differentiated by unique styling elements.
The cabin space includes an 8-inch diagonal infotainment screen as standard, while higher in the range, an 11-inch screen is equipped. Adaptive Cruise Control is available for most trim levels, while Chevy Safety Assist tosses in six advanced safety and driver awareness tech items. The larger exterior dimensions also translate into more room in the cabin, with an extra 3 inches of rear legroom and 12 percent greater cargo capacity.
Under the hood, the 2024 Chevy Trax cradles the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, which produces 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Output is sent exclusively to the front wheels by way of the GM six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is not offered. The GM VSS-F vehicle set provides the bones.
Pricing for the 2024 Chevy Trax starts at $21,495. Including destination charge charge (DFC). Critically, the 2024 Chevy Trax costs less than the 2022 Chevy Trax. At the top of lineup, the 2024 Chevy Trax 2RS and Activ trims both start at $24,995.

Still wondering why the Seeker overseas gets LED taillights, a panoramic roof option, as well as 360′ backup cam… all for less money too. I can forgive the 1.5L omission, but the nickel and bean counting is really on display in the US market.
The same price you get 1.5L turbo, or hybrid. What a joke.
which body does the Trax get? Chevrolet Trax (since this is a crossover, it will likely switch to VSS-S)
your written article says: “The GM VSS-F vehicle set provides the bones.”
Hey, 2024 Trax is manufactured from Changwon plant, not a bupyeong 1.
Chevy killed it with these. As long as they are fairly reliable they will sell a ton of them. This is exactly the right vehicle to release in this market. I wish they would have offered a larger engine option, but other than that it’s great and priced right. It got announced just a couple weeks after I bought my new Blazer. I am still torn on if I would have waited or still bought the Blazer. I definitely prefer the size of the Blazer much more, but it sure would have been nice to keep $15k in my pocket or have been able to just pay cash. I know there will be a lot of haters just because it is GM and I agree that they can screw up nearly anything, but they nailed it with the new Trax and I imagine they will sale a ton of them. Just hope they can keep up with production because a dealer markup would kill the whole rease for buying this. You buy it because it is a great value at the MSRP. If you pay much over MSRP that value is lost and there are other better options.
When and how can I build a 2024 Chevy Trax online.
There does not seem to be that option as of yet for the 2024 Trax online
I do not believe that the Trax will have a traditional GM configurator. It will be port concensus which means the factory picks what they build. I believe that you can still place an order from your dealership and they pick the most similar options that the factory has shipped. So you likely won’t be able to get it optioned exactly like you want, but should be able to get real close. If I am not mistaken it will be similar to ordering a Honda or Toyota.
You’ll be able to build one online and search dealer inventories, it’s just not live yet.
I’ve been in active contact with my dealer regarding 24 trax. I’ll be ordering one very soon. The dealer I’m picking mine from said they will have port consensus for their bulk buys, but that they should still be able to custom order one for a customer if they don’t have one that suits their needs. They implied port consensus is what the dealer has to pick from for their lots, but I can wait longer and get one built? If that’s not the case, I’m not picky, I want a 2RS with a sunroof. Color I’m not picky on. Shouldn’t be too hard.
