Choosing a new vehicle can be difficult due to the availability of many options out there. We here at Maguire Chevrolet & Cadillac of Ithaca have gone ahead and provided our neighbors in Elmira, Cortland, and Ithaca, NY, with this page which offers a collection of all of our Chevy Trax features and reviews.

Chevy Trax: Performance

The Trax comes standard with a 1.4-liter turbocharged ECOTEC® engine, accompanied by a DOHC VVT I-4 valve train. This superb machinery can generate 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, it includes a sequential multi-port fuel injection system with electronic throttle control.

This power comes to the forefront when talking about fuel efficiency. The approximate fuel tank capacity for the standard Trax is 14 gallons, which provides enough fuel for where you want to go. Now for the harder numbers, the Trax achieves an EPA-estimated 26 city/31 highway MPG.

Another feature is the Hydra-Matic 6T40 6-speed automatic transmission, which is electronically controlled with overdrive and Driver Shift Control. This gives the driver a smoother experience when shifting during the driving experience.

Chevy Trax: Interior

The interior space of the Trax is designed to provide a smooth ride for you and your passengers on board. The measurements related to the basic trim are as follows:

  • Front-Row Headroom: 39.6 inches
  • Front-Row Legroom: 40.8 inches
  • Front-Row Shoulder Room: 54.1 inches
  • Front-Row Hip Room: 51.7 inches

As for the passengers in the rear row, the dimensions are:

  • Second-Row Headroom: 38.8 inches
  • Second-Row Legroom: 35.7 inches
  • Second-Row Shoulder Room: 52.8 inches
  • Second-Row Hip Room: 50.7 inches

When considering what to bring along with you in the Trax, it's important to look at the available cargo space:

  • Cargo Volume to Seat 1: 48.4 cu. ft.
  • Cargo Volume to Seat 2: 18.7 cu. ft.

In addition, it offers 92.8 cu. ft. of passenger room, which means you can comfortably seat five passengers inside.

Chevy Trax: Trim Levels

As you've seen, the LS base trim of the Trax is a great vehicle on its own, but it comes with an additional trim. The two trims have the same engine setup as discussed above, so you can expect a smooth ride across the board. 

The next trim level we encounter is the Trax LT. From the start, it grabs attention by being the only trim to offer the Redline Edition. This optional package transforms your vehicle into a sleeker and more stylish vehicle in all black, with selectively placed red accents.

This trim also offers Keyless Start, Remote Start, Keyless Open, and a 6-speaker audio system. All of these features appear as either options you can include or come standard.
