Introducing the 2018 Chevy Trax

The 2018 Chevrolet Trax is the small SUV with a big personality that's perfectly at home on the city streets or the highway. With its sporty, aggressive styling, it will grab everyone's attention and it's the perfect size to snag even the tightest parking spot.

Don't let the size fool you, though - the Chevy Trax can be packed with way more cargo than you might think. It offers up eight different seating arrangements and room for items as long as eight feet when you fold down the front passenger seat! Perfect for any weekend getaway, Trax can comfortably carry any snowboard or surfboard, plus all your gear.

Not only does Trax have surprising cargo room and nimble city agility, but it has great fuel economy that matches many compact cars. With its standard 1.4L turbocharged ECOTEC engine, it has plenty of pep but still only sips the gas, getting up to an impressive 33 MPG Highway.*  If you want even more grip in inclement weather, Trax offers an All-Wheel Drive (AWD) configuration.

Available Trim Packages
With three exciting trims to choose from, you're sure to find the perfect Trax for you. The zippy and economical 1.4L turbo engine comes standard on all models and is paired with a smooth six-speed automatic transmission.

  • LS - With this trim, you get StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control, rearview camera, power windows and locks, the high-tech Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen media center, and remote keyless entry.
  • LT - When you step up to this trim, you add 16-inch aluminum wheels, halogen projector headlights, roof rack side rails, deep-tinted rear windows, cruise control, and remote start.
  • Premier - This top-of-the-line Trax trim comes loaded with the Driver Confidence Package (Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Rear Park Assist), 18-inch alloy wheels, leatherette seating, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bose premium audio system, Keyless Open and Start, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, and a power sunroof.

Special Editions

To make an ever bolder impression, there are two bold Special Edition versions to choose from. You'll turn heads with the sleek Midnight Edition (available on Premier trim) which boasts tough and cool blacked-out looks. It features Mosaic Black Metallic paint, Jet Black leatherette seats, 18-inch black aluminum wheels, black bowties, and more.

For a sportier look, you can opt for the Redline Edition (available on LT trim). Exterior colors are cool Silver Ice Metallic or edgy Mosaic Black Metallic paint. The Redline features 18-inch black-finish aluminum wheels with red accent stripes, black mirror caps, a black grille, black bowties, a Jet Black interior, and more.

Even when you're out on the road, Trax keeps you connected. Trax comes standard with a 7-inch MyLink display, which is your hub for entertainment and communication. The color touchscreen lets you control the AM/FM stereo and includes Bluetooth streaming audio via your smartphone.

Trax supports Apple CarPlay, which lets you use your iPhone to enjoy Apple Music, get directions with Apple Maps, call family and friends, and much more. If you have an Android phone, Trax is also compatible with Android Auto, which uses your smartphone to access Google Maps, your calendar, playlists, and more.

4G LTE Wi-Fi is also available, providing a connection for up to seven devices and bringing the internet along for the ride with you.

With the myChevrolet Mobile App, you get the power of Chevrolet in the palm of your hand, so you stay connected with your Trax from just about anywhere. If properly equipped, you can start and stop your engine and lock or unlock your doors with your phone. You can also send destinations to your navigation system, view diagnostic information, and set parking reminders.  


Trax is packed with a variety of safety features to give you total confidence. When you drive the Trax, you're surrounded by ten standard air bags, a high-strength safety cage made of steel, and five available high-tech safety features:

  • Forward Collision Alert - This advanced feature comes standard on Premier and uses camera technology to alert you to slowing vehicles in your path.
  • Side Blind Zone Alert - This available technology uses radar sensors to alert you when other vehicles are in your blind zones.
  • Lane Departure Warning - Coming standard on the Premier Trim, this feature gives you a visual and audible warning when you cross a detected lane marking without using your turn signal.
  • Rear Park Assist - This available feature uses ultrasonic sensors to alert you of stationary objects that are too close, and also shows you guiding lines on the rear vision camera to assist backing up. 
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert - With this available feature, radar sensors detect other vehicles coming from either direction and utilize the rear camera to visually and audibly warn you. Backing out of your driveway or parking space has never been safer.
