Chevrolet Trax is New Small SUV from GM, Won’t Come to US

Chevrolet has unveiled plans for an all new small SUV, called the Chevrolet Trax, that will be introduced to the world at the 2012 Paris Auto Show in September.

The Trax will launch first in Mexico at the end of 2012, and into 140 other global markets in 2013, with no plans as of yet to come to America because of its similarity to the Chevy Equinox. The Equinox would be a competitor, but a more likely reason is the Trax’s similarity to the much more akin Buick Encore.

Trax is a classic crossover, with seating space for five occupants, along with small size and car-like gas mileage and handling. The Trax will likely offer the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine out of the Equinox as its base powerplant. This small four-cylinder has been the most popular engine in the Equinox here in the States, and will be an even better fit in a smaller vehicle like the Trax.

Styling on the vehicle is directly influenced by the Buick Encore, the one major difference being the front grille, which follows in line with the rest of both respective brands styling.

“The Trax provides Chevrolet an entry into a growing small SUV segment and delivers the flexibility, great fuel economy and car-like handling that urban explorers around the world require,” said Mary Barra, GM’s senior vice president of product development. is offline
