What’s New on the 2017 Chevy Trax?

The Chevy Trax is a fuel-efficient and engaging small crossover that delivers the driving height and spaciousness of an SUV with the drive-ability of a small car. We are so excited that we now have a 2017 Chevy Trax release date, and some information on the refreshed look and tech of this already excellent vehicle.

2017 Chevy Trax Release Date

2017 Chevy Trax driving away with a new rear fascia

The 2017 Chevy Trax will be released to dealerships starting this fall, and will features some fairly significant changes inside and out. Some things will remain the same. The 1.4-litre Ecotec turbo from the 2016 Chevy Trax will return mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. It will deliver 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque.

2017 Chevy Trax Refreshed Exterior

While the Trax will remain recognizable, there have been several tweaks to give it a sleeker and more powerful look. A new dual port grille and stylishly elongated headlights will allow this compact SUV to integrate design language first seen in the 2016 Chevy Cruze and 2016 Chevy Malibu. The rear fascia will also be all new.

For 2017 the Trax will be available in LS, LT, and a new Premier trim. We don’t have all the details yet, but the Premier will feature specialty lighting.

Technology and Cabin Upgrades for the 2017 Trax

Inside the cabin the 2017 Chevy Trax will also be delivering on premium new and enhanced features. The dashboard has been revised for a feeling of spacious sophistication, and certain features (like the 7-inch MyLink touchscreen display) have been adjusted to be even more driver friendly. Powerful 4G LTE Wi-Fi will continue to be available. Other excellent available technology features new or improved on the 2017 Chevy Trax include:

Will Special Edition 2017 Chevy SUVs Be Available in Canada?

With the announcement of the 2017 Chevy Equinox Special editions available later this year, we are wondering if other special edition Chevy SUVs will be available in Canada. We don’t have any solid information about this yet, but we know that Chevrolet is expanding the U.S. production of special edition 2017 Chevy SUVs, and it’s possible that this new inventory will be available in Canada as well.

What special edition 2017 Chevy SUVs may be available in Canada?

We have an entire post about the 2017 Chevy Equinox special editions that will be available in Canada (classic black Midnight and Summit White Sport models), but what other special edition 2017 Chevy SUVs can we hope for? According to recent Chevrolet announcements, the U.S. market will be getting not only the 2017 Chevy Equinox specialty models, but also special edition 2017 Trax and 2017 Traverse models.

2017 Chevy Equinox brings bold new style to Canada

2017 Trax Midnight Edition

The Trax Midnight Edition, which was introduced in 2016, seems scheduled to return on the refined 2017 model, though we don’t have an estimated time for that. We would be surprised if the 2016 edition was the only run of this popular option. Like the Equinox and Chevy Silverado Midnight Editions, this model will be completely blacked out, including the wheels and the front Chevrolet bow-tie.

2017 Chevy Traverse Graphite

Available only on the 2LT model (and with all the advantages of that advanced trim), the Graphite Edition of the 2017 Chevy Traverse will feature 20-inch Dark Charcoal wheels, black Chevrolet bow-tie branding, an integrated step assist and dual exhaust. Exterior color options will be Mosaic Black Metallic, Tungsten Metallic, Siren Red, and Iridescent Pearl. We enjoy this confident new look on the popular Traverse.

Again, here at Craig Dunn Motor City in Portage La Prairie MB we don’t have solid information about the availability of these special editions in our area, except for Chevy Equinox. If you are interested in one of these special addition 2017 Chevy SUVs, contact a member of our sales team or keep an eye on our inventory.

Check Out These Fuel Efficient GM Vehicles

Whether gas prices are on the rise or dropping, it’s never fun to fill up. That demand can be even worse if you have serious towing and hauling needs. Fortunately, we have a list of some of the most fuel efficient GM vehicles in Canada and available on the Craig Dunn lot.

Fuel Efficient Chevy cars

Some of the top fuel efficient models are also some of the most user friendly. The 2016 Chevy Malibu is an excellent sedan and, when outfitted with an optional hybrid powertrain with technology lifted from the electric Chevy Volt it can offer a segment-topping fuel consumption of 4.9 L/100km in city driving, 5.2 L/100km on the highway for 5.0 L/100km combined. Even the standard 1.5-litre turbo powertrain is projected to hit 6.4 L/100km on the highway.

For those in the market for a small SUV, the a new Chevy Trax can also offer 7 L/100km or 5 L/100km on highway driving.

Other top fuel-efficient Chevy vehicles include:

  • Chevy Volt
  • Chevy Sonic
  • Chevy Cruze Eco
  • Chevy Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel

Fuel Efficient Trucks in Canada

Sedans and small cars aren’t always what you need to get the job done, but GM can also offer fuel efficient trucks that can work hard without costing you an arm and a leg at the pump. It was recently announced that the diesel versions of the 2016 Chevy Colorado and the 2016 GMC Canyon were on the very top of fuel efficiency for Canada and North America. Clean diesel fuel has long been acknowledged as one of the most efficient fueling options and both the 2016 Chevy Colorado diesel and the 2016 GMC Canyon diesel offer a stunning combined city and highway driving fuel efficiency of 9.4 L/100km with two wheel drive. They achieve this number without sacrificing any towing or hauling capability.
