Next-gen Chevy Trax spied during drive tests in Michigan
Motor1.com revealed the first spy photos of the second-generation Chevrolet Trax, which were captured on the General Motors test track located in Milford, Michigan, during the final tests of its development phase.
Although the vehicle hides under a very thick camouflage, the photos allow to appreciate some design similarities with the new Chevrolet Blazer, especially the frontal features that both models borrowed from the Camaro.
From the images it can also be deduced that the new version will be larger and more spacious on the inside to provide greater comfort to its passengers, especially those in the back row.
It’s still unknown on which platform this vehicle will be built, but Motor1 considers that GM will use a new architecture called VSS-S, although it does not rule out that it will continue to be produced under an updated version of the Gamma-2 that serves as basis for the Sonic and the current Trax.
The site also mentions that the new version will retain the current 1.4-liter turbo engine, but paired with a new nine-speed automatic transmission.
Chevrolet plans to unveil the new Trax at the end of 2019. It is still unknown what its production location will be, although it is possible that it will continue to be manufactured at the San Luis de Potosi plant in Central Mexico.
