Twenty Reasons Why 2015 Chevrolet Trax is the Next Big Thing
2015 Chevrolet Trax has the utility of a crossover and the agility of a compact car. In fact, the model is Chevrolet's seventh small vehicle launch in four years. It is packed with technology that is perfect for the "connected" city lifestyle: it includes the 4G LTE Wi-Fi and Siri Eyes Free technology. In addition, the Trax also delivers efficiency due to its standard turbocharged engine EPA-estimated at 34 mpg on the highway.
Chevrolet is pointing out 20 reasons why the new Trax is the best choice for the city dweller. First, it offers seating for up to five people and up to eight seating/cargo-carrying configurations. Secondly, it features a 60/40-split, flat-folding rear seat and a fold-flat front passenger seat.
Next, the cargo space is up to 48.4 cubic feet with the rear seat folded. The fourth reason is that Trax has 15 interior storage compartments. Some of these include upper and lower storage in each door, glove box, center stack, left and right of the center stack and left of the steering wheel.
Next comes the standard cargo management features, which include a rigid, removable cargo security cover and a storage area under the rear cargo floor. Six is the Chevrolet MyLink Infotainment with a 7-inch-diagonal color touch screen, while under seventh position is the OnStar with 4G LTE and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.
Eight: Siri Eyes Free for iPhone users; and nine: standard USB port with MP3 playback/iPod music device support. The tenth place goes for the optional BringGo navigation app and Sirius XM Satellite Radio, while the eleventh reason is the engine. Precisely, it is the Ecotec 1.4L turbocharged unit coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission. It is rated at 138 horsepower (102 kW) and 148 lb-ft of torque (200 Nm), between 1,850 and 4,900 rpm.
On the twelfth position is the available all-wheel drive, while thirteen is the exceptional dimensions of the car, which are designed for more confidence and maneuverability. Fourteen – the MacPherson-strut front suspension and compound crank rear suspension, and fifteen – the direct-acting, fuel-saving column-mounted electric power steering system.
The price of the Trax is the next benefit. It is starting at $20,995 USD for LS trim level. And speaking of trim levels – they are under number seventeen. Chevrolet is offering three trims: LS, LT and LTZ that come with different specifications to match any taste.
Eighteen is the all-wheel drive that is offered for $1,500 US which makes the most affordable AWD option in Chevrolet's portfolio. And nineteen is the wide range of safety features. At last, we must mention the "Chevrolet Complete Care", which includes two years/24,000 miles of scheduled maintenance.
