2023 Chevrolet Trax Preview Redesign Info, Pricing, Release Date

2023 Chevrolet Trax

Redesign Info

While early reports from the beginning of the year claimed that Chevrolet would be discontinuing the Trax after the 2022 model year, the latest rumors claim that Chevrolet is actually getting ready to introduce a fully redesigned Trax for 2023. So, while production of the 2022 Trax will officially come to an end this year, consumers will be able to purchase an all-new Trax sometime next year.

Chevrolet hasn’t provided any official information yet on the all-new 2023 Trax. However, spy shots published by GM Authority show what appears to be a larger vehicle akin to a Kia Seltos or Chevy Trailblazer. Even though the 2023 Trax is heavily camouflaged in early spy photos, the front of the subcompact SUV is considerably more angular than the current Trax generation. This aggressive look could help move the model slightly more upmarket. Our best guess is that the Trax will move to share a similar design to the Blazer and the Tracker, which Chevy sells in other markets. Both of those SUVs feature angular front-end designs with slim headlights, large grilles, and ridged hoods.

With a fully redesigned Trax expected to arrive for the 2023 model year, we expect Chevrolet to come out with a new design for the interior. With the current Trax sharing an interior design to the model from 2015, an upgrade is needed. If the Trax moves to share a design with the global Tracker, the SUV’s interior will have a more streamlined dashboard. The central touchscreen will shift to sitting on top of the dashboard, while the infotainment controls will be located directly under the screen. The air vents will create a natural separation between the HVAC controls on the lower part of the center console and the infotainment screen. We expect the Trax to grow in size, which would result in a roomier cabin for passengers.

As a fully redesigned model, the 2023 Trax is expected to get a large upgrade over the current model, but we’re not sure what kind of upgrades the SUV will receive. Chevrolet offers the current Trax with a seven-inch touchscreen as standard equipment. The infotainment system includes a Wi-Fi hotspot, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, two USB ports, satellite radio, and six audio speakers.

We’re not sure what kind of engine will power the 2023 Trax. Most automakers don’t share powertrains for global markets because regulations are so different. We hope Chevy gives the 2023 Trax an upgrade over the current Trax, which comes with a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 155 horsepower. A six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. All-wheel drive is available.

Chevrolet doesn’t offer a lot of standard safety features on the current Trax. We expect that to change for 2023. The only noteworthy standard safety feature on the Trax is a rearview camera. Optional safety features include rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and rear parking sensors.

Pricing & Release Date

We don’t know when Chevrolet will introduce the 2023 Trax and we don’t know how much it will cost. Production of the current Trax is coming to an end before the end of 2022. The 2023 Chevrolet Trax should go on sale before next fall.

Pricing for the 2023 Trax hasn’t been announced yet. Fully redesigned models usually cost more than the vehicles they replace. So, pricing should be higher than the current Trax that ranges from $22,595 to $24,395 (with destination).

Competitors in the subcompact SUV segment include the Kia Soul, Mazda CX-30, Hyundai Kona, Volkswagen Taos, and Nissan Kicks.
