The upcoming 2022 Chevrolet Trax is having a mid-cycle refresh. One of our favorite models is this subcompact crossover for various reasons. We would all like to make more drastic improvements, but that is not going to happen in the near future. The 2022 Trax will get minor upgrades, so the majority of the crossover will be a carryover. Chevrolet revised its compact crossover last year, so we anticipate some cool yet not radical improvements.
The Trax model will retain its current dimensions and efficiency. The exterior, on the other hand, will get a few cosmetic updates. Also, the interior will be upgraded, and the current Trax will be sleeker than before. Sales will begin in late 2021 and here’s everything you need to know.
2022 Trax Gets Minor Exterior Facelift
New 2022 Chevrolet Trax is a four-door subcompact crossover. This small model will introduce some sort of a mid-cycle facelift, so don’t expect anything revolutionary. Chevrolet would instead make small cosmetic changes. Trax is related to the bigger Trailblazer SUV if you didn’t know. Two models have a lot in common, including exterior design. Trax, on the other hand, is a more lightweight model with a less appealing appearance. Still, Trax is an adorable but handsome crossover in our opinion.
The entry-level trims, such as the LS and LT, have 16-inch alloy wheels. Upper trims have larger rims, and the Midnight Edition has 18-inch gloss-black alloy wheels. The LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, and roof rails are available as standard equipment.
Updates and Interior Room
On the inside, the 2022 Chevrolet Trax is modern and straightforward. Trax is not very spacious due to its subcompact proportions, but it is spacious for the subcompact segment. The cabin configuration will remain unchanged. There will be room for five people, and even the button style will be the same. Chevrolet would include innovative and modern features, just like the latest safety aids. Trax will also house more standard features. The same 7-inch touchscreen is standard in the base trim level, like the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Front-seat passenger space is limited. The rear legroom is a different story with 35.7 inches. In comparison, the compact Honda HR-V has a wheelbase of 39.3 inches. If the current Trax is mostly intended to be used as a two-seater, the cargo capacity would be acceptable. The luggage space behind the rear seats is 18.7 cubic feet. When the seats are folded flat, this extends to 48.4 cubic feet.
Under the hood, the same 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine will power the 2022 Chevrolet Trax. This output will generate 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. According to what we hear, the same six-speed automatic transmission would be in use once again. However, some rumors say a new eight-speed automatic transmission, although this is not confirmed yet.
Trax is a front-wheel-drive crossover with an all-wheel-drive configuration available as an option. Interestingly, Chevrolet would not provide a hybrid powertrain. Trax is an ideal candidate, but the new engine is very fuel-efficient, so Trax is not a top priority at the moment.
2022 Chevrolet Trax Price, Release Date
The forthcoming 2022 Chevrolet Trax is an ideal city subcompact crossover. The updates are minor, but Trax, in our view, is still a very modern and cool model. The price is the same, which means you can get 2022 Trax for $24,000. Sales will begin in late 2021. However, some sources indicate that it will be in the first quarter of 2022.
