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.
