Featuring a complete overhaul for the new model year, the 2024 Chevy Trax stands as the first model year of the Bow Tie brand’s second-generation subcompact crossover, and introduces a suite of exterior, interior, and powertrain revisions. Now, the next-gen Trax is available with a new appearance package.
Dubbed the Blackout Package (RPO code PDD), this new LPO or dealer-installed option is available exclusively for the LS and LT trim levels for an extra $295, and includes the following (relevant RPO code in parenthesis):
- Front and rear Black Bow Tie emblems, LPO (SFZ)
- Black nameplate, LPO (RIN)
It’s worth noting that both the SFZ and RIN options can be added to the LS and LT trims as standalone options. Thus, the former costs $225, while the latter costs $125.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Trax is all new for the new model year. This includes a thoroughly overhauled exterior design, which features proportions that are longer, lower and wider than before. A set of dual-tier headlights with daytime running lights and turn signals are mounted high on the front fascia as well as headlamps mounted low.
On the inside, the 2024 Trax boasts an extra three inches of rear legroom and a 12 percent increase in cargo room over the preceding generation. Active Noise Cancelation and Adaptive Cruise Control are 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.
Under the hood, the 2024 Chevy Trax is powered by the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, rated at 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed to the front wheels exclusively through the GM six-speed automatic transmission.
As for structure, the 2024 Trax rides on the GM VSS-F vehicle set. Production officially kicked off in February 2023 at the GM Changwon plant in South Korea. Pricing for the starting 1LS trim level starts at $21,495, which includes the destination freight charge.
