First 2024 Chevy Trax Shipment Headed For The United States38
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.
In response to stronger than expected demand, GM Korea plans to maximize production capacity for 2024 Chevy Trax at the redesigned Changwon complex and add an additional production line for the model at the GM Bupyeong plant during the second quarter. Although it’s not official, it’s likely that the extra capacity at the Bupyeong plant is planned to build the all-new Buick Envista – included in the same project as the new Trax.
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.

When l worked for GM in the late 70’s, no imports were allowed in the parking lots. Things have really changed.
At Ft. Wayne, they were “allowed” but you better park as far from the doors as you could get. If you parked anywhere near the entrance…you could expect to have your car KEYED…and not just once.!!!
Ah, yes. Shows the maturity level of the Union employees. Also provides an explanation why the quality of the American auto industry was so bad and why foreign manufacturers gained so much market share over the years that followed.
If you don’t understand, you should probably just keep your opinions to yourself. You are obviously not American, so you don’t have a dog in the hunt. Just keep your thoughts inside the borders of your own country, and leave ours to us. Although we don’t actually have any borders…I know your country does bc every country in the world has one, except the country that also has no leader except the puppet.
Not even an Opel?
Now GM need to properly market this crossover and especially target the metropolitan markets on the east and west coasts.
And have supply to meet demand , not just 1 or 2 cars on dealers lots. People will want to drive the car before putting cash down
I hope not a single one of these sells…if I wanted a Korean car (which I don’t), there are other, arguably better, options. Build them here if you want to sell them here.
lol GM isn’t going to be able to build enough of these. Cry more
Which are the “arguably better” options? How do you know they’re better? Have you seen and driven a 2024 Trax?
As for GM being unable to sell them, you’re wrong. Read the article.
I was going to say I hope the boat sinks!!
Great positive reply. Jerk!
Coming sans back up sensors.
Wow! Why can’t GM build them here? Labor costs? Korea is quickly catching up on those costs. Plus, the quality is no where near what it should be. Honcho says, “We will TRY and keep the quality”. Yeh, right. With our economy here going down the sink, they need to bring manufacturing back to the states. This Global economy, is for the birds. Lets get the USA back where it needs to be. K.I.S.S. !
Which is why they should have kept the Lordstown plant.
Damn, the TRAX was announce much later than Blazer EV.
And yet, Blazer EV still has absolutely no date to be delivered to customer.
The Trax isn’t really all new. GM has already been building these for a while in other markets under the Seeker name. Scaling for global markets is a much different story here than it is for a ground up first generation product.
what was wrong you say?
They market the Blazer way too early.
If GM had put in effort, they could also show, they have hundreds of Blazer EV lining up in a train yard in Mexico, waiting to be deliver for summer 2023.
Since July, 2022; we heard no update, but getting slight price increase, no performance figure on the RWD, AWD variant, option price.
With all the reservation done since July 2022, where GM took the people who reserved it?
You mean they’re not going to hold on to them to intentionally keep inventories low & prices high? And it’s amazing how they started production on Feb. 24th & a week later have 5,000 already on a boat to the US. They can’t do this with every other model they build?
What’s good for GM is good for America and what’s good for America is good for (GM South Korea?). Nothing against South Korean or Chinese industry, but it appears GMK and SAIC General Motors Limited China are the tails wagging GM North America.
Build American cars in America we could have built them better,,,Sad.
Look they could build them here but then you would cry about the price that already is too high.
Everyone cries about Walmart and imports but most everyone shops there as they put their wallets first.
Lets face it the market is made up mostly by people who put price first and America second.
Cheap prices and made here are not possible in these lower cost models.
Price rules in the market and when money is tight it rules even more.
Thanks gm authority for deleting my post bull crap
Yea you moderators are gonna have a fun time deleting my posts. I’m not going anywhere. If you have a problem with me you have my email
Everybody bashing foreign products, do you buy AMERICAN when given an option?
Buy American cars built by Americans
Did some SNOWFLAKE get his feelings hurt?
No feeling hurt here son, just taking notice of how I’m being censored.
I haven’t read all the comments but remember, one of the problems with our current status is our demographics. We basically do not have enough workers. Baby boomers are retiring, and the replacement rate is something like 1.8 (or less) for every 2 baby boomers that are retiring. That’s why our unemployment rate is so low. We could build more factories here in the US, but would we be able to find the employees? Plus, it’s a drain on companies financially to have duplicate factories when you are in a global market. And it doesn’t bother me when U.S. companies have overseas manufacturing but a high proportion of the design, engineering and technology to build these vehicles is Stateside.
How are the other US non union auto manufactures doing these days?
If the shoe fits wear it! Boy.
Boy? You’re the one playing tiddlywinks son. All you do is insult people with no facts to back it up. But ok you are a troll
Has the Trax become a legit vehicle to purchase? I can’t believe they are still making it.
I have a 2014 trax and wow is it ever a hunk of junk. My engine light works well though.
I won’t buy any Korean brand car or any car made in Korea. Their market was closed for years to only Korean cars but that changed maybe 5-7 years ago. However, Korea limits any non Korean cars to a very small percentage of their total market. Our markets are wide open to their cars so I say screw them.
And don’t forget their government subsidized their flat panel TV screen production until they put all US companies out of business, now they have a monopoly. Unfair trade practices should be met aggressively with boycotts of as much of their products as possible. In the case of cars, there are plenty of other companies to choose from. For TVs, that ship has already sailed.
Funny, CaillacMan accuses people of being insulting then goes on to name calling.
love that trax readyn to go get one….to put it next to my camaro
