Introduced in the US for the 2015 model year, the Chevy Trax is a popular compact crossover SUV that is a great option if you want the performance and functionality of a crossover without committing to a larger vehicle. Although the Trax had been released in other countries as early as 2013, once it reached the US in 2015, it became quite popular and has been a successful model for Chevy. This means you will find a lot of different models available for the Trax when you look at them on the pre-owned market. The good news, however, is that since there has only been one generation for the Chevy Trax, you will not find many huge differences between them based on the model year.
Released in 2015, the Chevy Trax is a two-row compact crossover SUV, which means it is built on a car platform rather than on a truck platform like a traditional SUV. With seating for up to five people, you do not get quite as much interior space as you do with a larger model, but this is a perfect choice if you have a medium-sized family or group of friends. Three trims were available on the initial 2015 release: the LS, LT, and LTZ; they were all available with either front-wheel drive standard or with all-wheel drive.
Differences between these trims can be substantial. For example, the LS included 16-inch wheels, keyless entry, a 7-inch infotainment display, and a six-speaker sound system. If you find a used 2015 Chevy Trax LT, it would have come with cruise control, remote start, upgraded upholstery, and a power outlet, while the LTZ had 18-inch wheels, a six-way power-adjustable driver seat, heated front seats, and a Bose premium audio system.
In the years following its initial release in the US, there have been only minor changes and upgrades to the Chevy Trax. 2016 models are essentially identical to those from 2015, while the Trax received a pretty big update in 2017 with a refreshed exterior and improved Infotainment system. Certain driver confidence and safety packages were improved or made standard on some trims for 2018, but otherwise, there were few changes. Some new exterior colors were offered on 2019 models, while the 2020 Chevy Trax remained an excellent, if somewhat unchanged, option.
The 2017 Trax from Blossom Chevrolet is the compact SUV built for navigating the streets of Indianapolis. With a shorter vehicle length than the average compact car or SUV, the Trax is easy to park and maneuver in an urban environment.
The Trax, available in LS, LT and Premier trim options, can be equipped with available 16- or 18-inch alloy wheels and exterior chrome accents. Add available fog lamps and halogen projector headlamps to enhance your visibility during your nights on the town.
