The upcoming 2021 Chevy Trax will be the new-gen model. Trax will get a redesign and plenty of new features. After the latest spy shots, some things are much clearer. For the start, a new model will be larger than its predecessor, but not drastically. This will result in better interior legroom. Chevrolet will need to deploy a new GM’s G2XX platform.
Exterior will get a significant facelift and possibly two all-new exterior colors. From the inside, Trax comes with a longer list of standard equipment. On top of that, better safety and a couple of tech updates are in the line. Under the bonnet, we hope for at least one new optional engine.
If the reports are true, the 2021 Chevy Trax will get a serious facelift. The next-gen model will be redesigned and it will get a new platform. It is a GM’s G2XX architecture that underpins new Buick Encore. Knowing that Trax will be slightly larger. Another suggestion is the VSS-S platform but that is less likely to happen.
The 2021 Trax will get new exterior colors, two of them. New styling and new exterior features are in the line. Whatsoever, the headlights, grille, taillights, and bumpers will be enlarged. The sloping roof is now more unique and the Trax’ will get a much modern appearance.
2021 Trax Interior Redesign
Just like the exterior, the interior will be also heavily redesigned. The next-gen 2021 Chevy Trax will get an astonishing cabin. For the start, new interior color schemes will become available. Furthermore, technology updates are numerous. The new infotainment system, larger displays, more safety, and more driver-assistance systems. What else can you ask for?
Normally, Trax isn’t a premium SUV. You can find better-equipped SUVs on the market and in the compact segment. However, comfort is great and the new cabin will look truly modern and stylish. The current cargo area is rated at 48.5 cubic feet. However, the new Trax will be larger. Knowing that this SUV will from now on offer over 52.0 cubic feet. Moreover, interior legroom will be improved.
Chevy Trax Optional Packages, Editions
Just like in the years before, the all-new 2021 Chevy Trax will be a very customizable SUV. It offers numerous trim levels, special editions, and packages. There will be two special editions, a Midnight and Redline. Midnight Edition comes with Metallic Black color and all-black 18-inch alloy wheels. Moreover, black door handles, moldings, side mirrors, and floor mats are available. From the inside, a two-tone leather looks supreme. The seats are available in Light Titanium and Black colors. On top of that, silver accents from the inside are simply amazing.
The Redline Edition is available as well. You can load it on the LT trim level. Once again, blacked-out exterior features are the highlight of the Redline edition. However, instead of silver accents, this version offers red stripes, red contrast stitching and much more.
Same Four-Cylinder Engine
A 1.4-liter engine will surely remain, despite the new platform. This four-cylinder gasoline engine returns 140 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. At the moment, it is the only powertrain option. However, the 2021 Chevy Trax will probably get a more powerful and optional engine.
Rumors already started and there are plenty of candidates. Most likely, Chevrolet will opt for the turbocharged gasoline unit that will produce over 220 hp. As for the standard engine, it is rated at 25 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. Trax will continue to deploy an FWD setup.
