About The Trax

Production of the Chevrolet Trax began way back in 2012 and it shares its platform with the Aveo model by the same manufacturer.

The car is a subcompact crossover SUV that has a lot of the positives of owning an SUV while remaining cheap to run, insure and repair.

It’s a rather small car, but it comes with many features that make it perfect for those who live in an urban area.

If you’re wondering what the vehicle has to offer, take a look at the appropriate year’s owner’s manual from the list to the left.

Originally only sold outside of North America, the Trax quickly gained customers and so far has exceeded the sales of the previous year every year.

It wasn’t until 2015 that the SUV would become available in the USA but faced stiff competition right away from the Jeep Renegade and Buick Encore.

The American market had only one choice of engine, a 1.4-liter turbo that meant the SUV was not appropriate for towing. This was a bit of a shot in the foot for the Trax as it made it less of a “utility” vehicle.

To make up for this the car did come with Sirius satellite radio and OnStar for navigation and safety reasons in the US region.

The Chevrolet Trax is also limited in its transmission offering only a 6 speed automatic to US buyers though they could choose between front-wheel or four-wheel-drive.

In 2017 the model got a face-lift with alloy wheels and styling to match the rest of the Chevrolet range’s evolution.

Among the face-lift changes were a shuffle to the trim options which now included badges such as:

  • LS
  • LT
  • LTZ
  • Premier


Q: How long does a Chevrolet Trax last?

A: With proper servicing and maintenance, you can expect your Trax SUV to last up to 200,000 miles.

Q: How do I auto start my Chevy Trax?

A: Using the key fob, hold down the lock button for longer than usual to remote start your Trax. You will know when the car is remote starting because it will blink the turn signals.

Q: Does the Chevrolet Trax have heated seats?

A: If you choose to add the Premium Seat package to your new Chevrolet Trax when ordering the car you will have heated seats fitted.

Q: What is the difference between Chevy Trax LT and LS?

A: The LS trim is more affordable whereas the LT includes more premium features - including an optional four-wheel-drive system.

Q: Can you buy the Chevrolet Trax in a manual?

A: The current version of the Trax (as of 2021) is available with either a 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.
