The 2019 Chevrolet Trax will receive few minor updates, but we could also see some bigger novelties, such as new engine in the offer. Those are reports about a familiar small crossover, which is present for about four year.
The original model came in 2013. Just like pretty much all Chevy’s models, it receives small updates every year. A bigger, mid-cycle update was done last year. It included various visual improvements, but also several new details inside. This will probably be the only bigger updated of the first generation, since the redesigned model should come in 2020. So, the 2019 Trax should be second-to-last year model of the current generation.
Latest reports suggest minor tweaks in terms of new color options, new interior schemes etc. However, there is a chance to see a new 1.4-liter Turbo engine in the offer. Expect its arrival somewhere late in the next year.
2019 Chevrolet Trax changes
The 2019 Chevrolet Trax will come with the pretty much same design as the current model. The company did a facelift recently, so bigger changes definitely won’t come until complete redesign. This means that the new model will keep a familiar styling, which was upgraded last year with the new grille, new headlight and taillights and several other visual details.
The interior design also came with several novelties. We saw several tweaks on the dashboard, especially at the center console. So, it is clear that there is no much space for improvement of the current generation. Most likely, the 2019 Chevrolet Trax will come with few new exterior colors. Some new interior schemes could come as well. Although it is still unconfirmed, the biggest novelty for the 2019 Trax should be a new 1.4-liter Turbo gasoline engine. Rest of the car will remain pretty much the same.
2019 Chevrolet Trax equipment
When it comes to equipment and standard features, we are about to see pretty much same organization, although some smaller tweaks are quite possible. The current model comes in three trim levels. The base LS comes with standard features like 16-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, full power accessories, 7-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration, 6-speaker audio system, rearview camera etc. A mid-range LT trim adds satellite radio, alloy wheels, roof rails, upgraded headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, silver-colored exterior elements, rear privacy glass, cruise control, remote engine start, heated outside mirrors etc.
Finally, there is a top-range Premier trim. This version includes standard features like 18-inch alloy wheels, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats and full leatherette (premium vinyl) upholstery. The 2019 Chevrolet Trax should come with the same organization, although each trim level could receive few new standard features.
2019 Chevrolet Trax engines
As we already mentioned, the 2019 Chevrolet Trax will probably come with the new 1.4-liter Turbo engine. The current version of this engine is good for about 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque and returns around 27 miles per gallon in a combined drive. For this upgrade, we expect to see some improvement in terms of power and economy too.
Besides this engine, there are also 1.6- and 1.8-liter atmospheric gasoline units, which are good for about 115 and 140 horses, respectively.
For markets such as Europe, there is also a 1.7-liter diesel engine, which has a max output of 128 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. Pretty much all engines are available both with the manual and automatic transmission.
2019 Chevrolet Trax release date and price
Since 2019 Chevrolet Trax most likely won’t feature bigger changes, we expect its arrival in usual time, which is somewhere late in the next year. We also don’t expect changes in price, so base models will go around 22.000 dollars.
Competition in the segment is tough. There are models like Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, Toyota C-HR, Nissan Juke, Subaru Crosstrek and many others.
