When you start noticing the all-new 2024 Chevrolet Trax on the roads and highways of Yellowknife and the surrounding area, it’s not a model you’re likely to confuse with its predecessor. If any new model can genuinely claim to live up to its “all-new” billing, it has to be the 2024 Trax, as the name and compact crossover SUV classification are all you see carried over from the previous model. There’s a lot to like about the all-new Chevrolet Trax, but its looks will grab most of the early headlines.
There’s no denying that the exterior of the all-new 2024 Chevrolet Trax is stunningly modern. However, it does follow a now-familiar blueprint seen with other SUVs Chevrolet has been producing over the last year or two. The new model is bold, sporty, athletic, and muscular, and Phil Zak, Global Chevrolet’s executive design director, is right on the money when he says, “The bold exterior and tech-forward interior design of the all-new Trax redefines what an entry-level vehicle can be.”
Each of the five available trim levels has specific styling cues to differentiate them from the other models, including trim-specific front grilles, alloy wheels, and unique interior décor. The 2024 Trax family begins with the highly affordable entry-level LS model, and after that, the range goes to the 1RS, LT, 2RS, and range-topping ACTIV trim level.
Large displacement engines and advanced all-wheel-drive systems in vehicles are all well and good in the right circumstances. But they’re not particularly appropriate for a vehicle unlikely to venture beyond the urban jungle, especially if affordability needs to be a key attribute. Some shoppers may want to have those features “just in case,” but Chevy has chosen to concentrate on delivering everything the urban driver wants and needs and nothing they don’t need with the all-new Trax.
That’s why it makes so much sense to plant a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine under the hood of every 2024 Chevrolet Trax. This perfectly appropriate and economical small-displacement powerplant develops 137 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque, which exclusively powers the front wheels through a tried and tested six-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces all the performance a vehicle like this needs in the town, city, and on the highway, and also delivers fuel economy that will prevent you from becoming too friendly with your local gas station.
Value for money is undoubtedly a significant selling point for the all-new 2024 Chevrolet Trax. However, despite the attractive starting MSRP of the entry-level Trax LS, it’s still a very generously equipped model that boasts standard alloy wheels, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, LED headlights, heated front seats, and active noise cancellation. Chevrolet Safety Assist is also part of the standard specification of every 2024 Chevy Trax, helping deliver impressive safety and that daring style.
Chevrolet Safety Assist is a suite of six advanced safety and driver awareness technologies that include Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, IntelliBeam auto high-beam control, and Following Distance Indicator. A rear vision camera and an electronic parking brake are also standard across the lineup, and from the LT model upwards, every Trax also gets standard Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The 2024 Chevrolet Trax is a model perfectly designed for the urban environment that doesn’t pretend to be anything it isn’t. Instead of offering a raft of unnecessary engine and drivetrain options, the all-new Trax concentrates on style, value, safety, and economy. Once word gets out, demand for the all-new Trax is sure to be high.
