A new member of Chevrolet family is going to hit the market as a 2018 model. It will be the new 2018 Chevrolet Trax. This crossover underwent significant rework and upgrades last year, so you should not expect any drastic changes and surprises on the 2018 model.
As we have already mentioned, the ongoing 2017 model is still present in the market, so the new 2018 Chevrolet Trax can be described as a slightly redesigned vehicle, following the trends of the next-generation crossovers. It shares the platform and some other features with the Buick Encore. First of all, it will be available in several trims, some of which include the base LS, the mid-range LT and Premier.

This model will also appear in three versions of paint color – Storm Blue Metallic, Sandy Ridge Metallic and Cajun Red Tintcoat. When it comes to the front end, we have noticed a large hexagonal black grille and somehow wider headlights. The LT and Premier trims will be using the LED technology in the front and the rear lighting. The new Trax will also acquire redesigned taillights.
The interior of the new 2018 Chevrolet Trax will be able to accommodate five passengers. The seats will be adjustable with the option of folding down, but only in Premier trims you will find them covered in leather. This roomy cabin will also be well-equipped with the latest entertainment and My Link infotainment system. You can expect the Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity, Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple Car Play and Android Auto and a 7-inch touch screen. In terms of safety, you will be provides with features such as air bags, brake assist, traction control and stability control system, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, rear cross-traffic detection, rearview camera and others.
When it comes to power train, the 2018 Chevrolet Trax will be using a 1.4-liter Ecotec turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It will be able to provide 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. Both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive systems will be offered, but the first one will come with a six-speed automatic or manual transmission while the other will be geared with a six-speed automatic transmission only.
