All new for the 2015 model year, the Chevy Trax compact sport utility made its debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show, and Autobytel was there to capture the moment. The new Chevy Trax was introduced by Alan Batey, the President of General Motors, as the future of modern urban transportation. Chevrolet refers to the Trax as an urban SUV, because it was designed specifically for the needs of city dwellers and commuters. What that means, basically, is that the Chevy Trax offers the agility and convenience of a small car, but it’s packed with sport utility features that make the Trax a very versatile vehicle. This new Chevy crossover is powered by a 1.4-liter engine, small enough to be efficient, but it’s also of the turbocharged ECOTEC variety, so the Trax can pack plenty of power. The inside of the Chevy Trax was designed to maximize cargo space, so even though this SUV is on the small side, it’ll still be functional enough to carry around plenty of stuff. When the rear seats are folded flat, the modestly sized Trax boasts more than 48 cubic feet of cargo space. The cabin’s been fitted with new smart technology for efficient interaction and integrated communications, as well as lots of storage cubbies. Chevrolet hopes the Trax will attract new, young buyers to the brand.
