Just a few days after starting mass production of the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax in South Korea, General Motors has just announced the first shipment of Chevrolet‘s new entry-level crossover to the United States.
GM’s South Korean subsidiary reported on February 28th that the first large-scale shipment of 2024 Chevy Trax units left the Asian country for the United States. The automaker is thus responding to the strong demand from American customers for the completely redesigned 2024 Trax, as it starts its journey in the global market.
“The Trax will rewrite history for the crossover utility vehicle market, and I am confident that demand will be high enough to operate the largest production line at the Changwon plant at its fullest,” said President and CEO of GM Korea, Roberto Rempel. “We will do our best in initial quality control and actively respond to global demand through production optimization and efficiency,” he added.
The first shipment of 2024 Chevy Trax units to the United States left the Gapo New Port in Masan, Changwon, Gyeongsangnam-do, the same region as the GM Changwon plant that recently began mass production of the second-generation Chevy Trax. This first batch of approximately 5,000 units is destined entirely for the North American market.
The first shipment of 2024 Chevy Trax units is already on its way to the United States and the crossover is set to hit American dealerships in the spring of this year, when it will strengthen the brand’s utility portfolio below the Chevy Trailblazer. Pricing for 2024 Trax starts at an aggressive $21,495 including the destination charge for the base LS trim.
