Making Trax: Chevy to Launch Small SUV for Global Markets
New Chevrolet Trax to Debut in Paris
Although the upcoming Chevy Trax small SUV isn’t (yet) scheduled to show up in the U.S., it’s already getting closer to the brand’s home market: Soon after the Trax story first broke, announcing the new vehicle would be introduced at this fall’s Paris Motor Show, Chevrolet updated its release to include Canada as among the first countries in line to get it.
Details are sparse at this point, but the new Trax will hold up to five and provide best-in-class cargo space, and, according to Mary Barra, GM’s senior vice president of Product Development: “The Trax provides Chevrolet an entry into a growing small SUV segment and delivers the flexibility, great fuel economy and car-like handling that urban explorers around the world require. After a record sales year in 2011 and a record first quarter, Chevrolet continues to meet customer needs by expanding its portfolio with strong new entries.”
