Customers who buy a new Chevrolet Trax will pay more in 2017.
Chevy announced recently that the redesigned Trax will cost more than it did in 2016 with a starting price of $21,895 for the base trim level. That’s an increase over 2016’s model, which started at $20,300.
The LS, which is the base trim level, comes with front wheel drive. The Trax has five other trim levels that range in price from $23,795 to $28,495, and comes either with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
The 2107 Chevrolet Trax will be available for sale in the fall of 2016.
The new features include a redesigned front end and exterior, a redesigned interior, the Premier trim level replacing the LTZ trim level and a new infotainment system. The Trax comes with new safety features including lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert and forward collision alert.
Chevy’s website indicated that the new Trax will come with a standard 1.4 liter turbocharged engine and is expected to get about 33 mpg on the highway.
Chevy officials indicted that the new features are what customers expect and the American automobile company wants to ensure it provides the latest technology to its customers. The Trax had one of its best sales months in July, coming in second to the red-hot Jeep Renegade and leapfrogging the Subaru Crosstrek, the Honda HR-V and its cousin, the Buick Encore.
