Experience the Agile Chevrolet Trax at Champion Chevrolet
The SUV has become immensely popular to drivers around Elizabethton and Jonesborough, and a big part of the zeitgeist has been the Chevy Trax. The Trax is a two-row subcompact SUV that sits up to five people. Its strengths revolve around its superior maneuverability and its intuitive technology features.
The Trax handles very similarly to a sedan, making it the ideal entry point to those who are new to the segment. Its body size allows for a tight turning radius, allowing it to fit in just about anywhere you can imagine. Hence, it's perfect for drivers who live and commute in the city.
Underneath the hood, the Chevy Trax comes standard with a 1.4-liter turbo-four engine that is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. This powertrain is capable of a performance output of 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque alongside a fuel economy of 26 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
All-wheel drive is also available, which further improves handling the Chevy Trax, particularly in bad weather driving situations. Opting for it changes your fuel economy to 24 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
The core of the technology experience on the Chevy Trax is the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System. Its seven-inch touchscreen is as responsive as a smartphone, and its menu system is intuitively designed to minimize the amount of time you spend flipping through to find what you're looking for.
In terms of standard features, you'll have access to smartphone compatibility via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which lets you perform tasks such as access to your personal music library, play your favorite audiobooks, and more. There is also a range of available apps that you can download and install on your infotainment system such as Spotify, The Weather Channel, Pandora, Marketplace, the myChevrolet App, Fox Sports, and USA Today.
A 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is also available, giving your passengers convenient access to high-speed internet everywhere from Kingsport to Bristol TN. Other available features include proximity keyless entry, remote start, satellite radio, a sunroof, and a premium seven-speaker sound system by Bose.
When it comes to safety, the Chevy Trax has your back. The subcompact SUV got a perfect score in overall crash test rating from the National Highway Safety Administration. It comes standard with a high-resolution rearview camera, though the Trax can be outfitted with a number of available features.
Dynamic driver-assist features such as front pedestrian braking and forward automatic braking give you a second set of eyes that help you and others stay safe in an ever chaotic world. The Trax is also equipped with advanced camera technology that ties into several different driver-assist features.
Adaptive cruise control senses the distance between you and the car in front of you, automatically adjusting the Trax's speed to maintain a set distance. There is also an available rear camera mirror that gives drivers a wider and less obstructed view of everything behind the SUV.
The Chevy Trax comes in three different trim levels, and they are as follows:
- Chevy Trax LS – Standard features include cloth upholstery, a 3.5-inch digital driver information display, a rearview camera, seven-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth.
- Chevy Trax LT – Comes with everything in the LS, but adds features such as deluxe cloth upholstery, proximity keyless entry, and push-button start.
- Chevy Trax Premier – Comes with everything in the other two trim levels but adds synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, fog lights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and the seven-speaker premium sound system from Bose.
