2019 Chevrolet Trax: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - January 24, 2018

Model Preview

After just two years on the market, the Chevrolet Trax received an updated exterior design. Given that refresh happened just back in 2017, we expect the 2019 model to roll in without a single notable change.

Expect the vehicle's exterior to be virtually indistinguishable from the current model. Since this small crossover will enter just its fifth year of production and will be just two model years removed from its refresh, we typically wouldn’t expect this lack of change to hurt sales. However, some find its styling a touch on the vanilla side, so it could start to chip away at its sales numbers a bit.

Inside, we anticipate the surprisingly roomy cabin to remain nearly identical to the current model, stylistically. While its sea-of-black cabin isn’t old by any stretch, it's considered to be on the blander side. What happens under the skin, though, could be a different story, since automakers do sometimes update small things like sound deadening and infotainment system software.

Under the hood, look for it to continue with a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that cranks out 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. This tiny engine pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission that delivers power to the front wheels as standard. Optionally, buyers can get their Trax with all-wheel drive.

In IIHS testing, the 2018 Trax received “Good” crash test scores in every area except the passenger-side small-overlap test. In this test, it received an “Acceptable” rating. On top of that, its lack of available automatic emergency braking drags it out of Top Safety Pick contention. It does, however, have available forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning. We expect all of this to remain the same for 2019.

Pricing & Release Date

Though there is no official release date for the 2019 Chevy Trax, we expect to see it in showrooms in the fall of 2018.

Official pricing is also not set in stone yet, but given there are no significant changes anticipated, we don’t expect any big changes from the 2018 model’s price range of $21,995 to $29,795 (destination fees included).

Competitors include the Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
