The forthcoming 2022 Chevy Trax is getting mid-cycle refreshments. This subcompact crossover is one of our favorite models. Surely, we’d like to see more significant changes, but that won’t happen. The 2022 Trax will introduce mild updates, so most of the crossover will be a carryover. Chevrolet updated its small crossover last year, so we expect some interesting but not so dramatic changes.
The Trax model will keep its current dimensions and the performances are the same. However, the exterior will introduce a couple of cosmetic upgrades. Even the interior will gain more features and generally, new Trax will be more modern than before. The sales will begin later in 2021.
2022 Trax Facelift
The 2022 Chevy Trax is a subcompact four-door crossover. The new model will arrive with a mid-cycle facelift, so don’t expect to see brand-new stuff. Instead, Chevrolet will provide minor visual upgrades. Trax is closely related to larger Trailblazer SUV. Two models are sharing plenty of stuff, including styling. Of course, Trax is a more compact model and it looks less attractive. Still, Trax is a very modern and handsome crossover.
Entry-level trims such as LS and LT are using 16-inch aluminum wheels. Upper trim levels are available with larger rims and the Midnight Edition comes with 18-inch gloss-black aluminum wheels. The 2022 Trax comes with slightly slimmer headlamps, improved taillights graphics, and possibly one or two new exterior paints.
The interior of the 2022 Chevy Trax is very modern and simple. Thanks to its subcompact dimensions, Trax is not so spacious, but still spacious enough for its segment. The cabin layout won’t change. There will be room for five occupants and even the button layout is the same. Chevrolet will add new and more modern touches.
On top of that, Trax will host more standard equipment. The same 7-inch touchscreen is offered as standard, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. We expect to see additional USB ports and the latest driver-assistance aids.
Chevy Trax Specs
Under the hood, the 2022 Chevy Trax will hide the same 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine. This output is capable of producing 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. From what we know, the same six-speed automatic transmission will remain. However, some rumors are suggesting a new eight-speed automatic gearbox, but this is not official.
Trax is a front-wheel-drive crossover with an optional all-wheel-drive system. Interestingly, but Chevrolet won’t offer any sort of hybrid powertrain. Trax is a perfect candidate, but its current engine is very fuel-efficient, so Trax is not the priority at the moment.
2022 Chevy Trax Release Date, Price
New 2022 Chevy Trax is a perfect city crossover that will arrive with mild improvements. In our opinion, Trax looks adorable, but the new model failed to introduce something new. Because of that, the price remains, so Trax is available for $24,000.
The sales will begin later in 2021. However, some reports are suggesting the first quarter of 2022. Chevrolet is yet to reveal the official launch date. As before, the Trax model will continue to compete with Mazda CX-30, Jeep Renegade, and Kia Seltos.
