Chevrolet just announced it was donating a pair of all-new 2024 Chevy Trax RS crossovers in honor of the Bow Tie brand’s 19-year history of collaboration with Major League Baseball (MLB) and the All-Star Game. The 2024 Chevy Trax crossovers were donated to two military charities, which selected the recipients. General Motors unveiled the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax last October.
The two 2024 Chevy Trax crossovers were donated to Operation Homefront and Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). Operation Homefront recommended Army Veteran Abreante Jones to receive the new car. Jones served in the military for seven years before she was honorably discharged to pursue education and a career as a paralegal. A single mother with an 8-year-old son, Jones’ previous vehicle experienced engine failure. Now, her new 2024 Chevy Trax RS will provide Jones with transportation in order to continue to pursue her career and support her son.
TAPS recommended Amanda Tinsley as the recipient of the second 2024 Chevy Trax RS. The surviving spouse of Sgt. Tyler Tinsley, Amanda Tinsley is raising her 9-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son, but faced issues with their previous vehicle that prevented them from attending important activities.
“The Jones and Tinsley families exemplify the service and sacrifice of the military community,” said Chevrolet chief marketing officer, Steve Majoros. “Chevrolet is honored to provide them with an all-new 2024 Trax and remains committed to recognizing the bravery and dedication of those who have served and their families.”
The all-new 2024 Chevy Trax is dressed in Chevy’s latest ICE-based design language, with exterior dimensions that are longer, wider, and lower than the model which preceded it. The cabin is also roomier, with a 12-percent increase in cargo capacity and an extra 3 inches of rear legroom. Under the hood, you’ll find the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, rated at 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. The GM VSS-F vehicle set provides the underpinnings, while production takes place at the GM Changwon plant in South Korea.
