2024 Chevy Trax Debuts As Redesigned Ford Maverick Rival

The ages-old rivalry between Ford and General Motors continues, as a bevy of new competitors from the latter have emerged in recent months, including the 2023 Chevy Tahoe RST, 2024 Chevy Equinox EV, and 2024 Chevy Silverado HD, to name just a few. However, with Ford EcoSport production ending, The Blue Oval doesn’t currently have a bargain-basement offering in terms of pricing, save for the Ford Maverick compact pickup. Thus, that particular model is really Ford’s closest competitor for the newly-revealed 2024 Chevy Trax, at least in terms of pricing, even though the latter model is a crossover – not a pickup.

While the 2023 Maverick starts out at $22,195, the 2024 Chevy Trax will feature a base MSRP of $21,495, serving as the entry-level model in the brand’s lineup. However, it is larger than the current-gen Trax, with more passenger and cargo space, as well as more standard equipment. Available in five trim levels – LS, 1RS, LT, 2RS and ACTIV – the new Trax can be spec’d with 17-, 18-, or 19-inch wheels, and features LED headlamps, while each trim gets its own distinctive styling features

The list of standard equipment continues with cruise control across all trims, while push-button start, automatic climate control, and wireless phone charging are present on most. Inside the cabin, the 2024 Trax comes equipped with a standard 8-inch infotainment screen or an 11-inch unit on LT, 2RS and ACTIV trims, as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, active noise cancellation, and standard Chevy Safety Assist 2 – a suite of six advanced driver-assist features.

The new Trax is powered by GM’s turbocharged 1.2L I-3 engine, which is estimated to produce 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. That powerplant is matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. In terms of availability, the all-new 2024 Chevy Trax is set to launch in the spring of 2023.
