A Performance Turbocharged by Good Vibes

When you're inside the Chevy Trax, you feel good, right down to the bones. How, exactly? To put it plainly, you're sitting on top of some impressive hardware. You'll be carving the roads up in the Trax's standard 1.4L turbocharged ECOTEC® 4-cylinder engine: a powertrain engineered for fun. How much fun? With this engine, you'll have up to 155 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. That's how much fun.

If you want to boost that fun level up (let's be honest, who doesn't?), you can opt for an available all-wheel drive system, bumping up your traction when you're driving in less-than-ideal conditions. However, you can keep it simple with the standard StabiliTrak, an electronic stability control system with traction control, and standard power steering!

Chevy Trax Interior - Comfortable and Cool

What kind of features inside this bad-boy will keep me cool and comfortable? You'll have many options, such as the available leather-wrapped steering wheel and leatherette seat trim, to give you a comfortable and cool ride.

If we're talking temperature, you can get the available heated driver and front passenger seats to keep you nice and warm on those frigid New York winter evenings. Sounds nice, right? Everything is nice inside the Chevy Trax-especially you, the driver!

The Safety To Keep You Safe

Safety is important in these uncertain times. It's what gives us peace of mind. Luckily, we can assure you that you'll have peace of mind inside the 2021 Chevy Trax. This ride is loaded with standard and available safety features to keep you and your loved ones safe, including:

  • Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Rear Park Assist

  • And so much more!
