What’s New for the 2019 Chevrolet Trax?
The changes for 2019 are pretty tiny. First, the Trax gets a new Premier badge for the liftgate. Then, it drops the Red Hot color, and adds Pacific Blue Metallic, Dark Copper Metallic, and Satin Steel Metallic.
The 2019 Trax is a compact SUV, best suited for close driving environments. The smallest crossover from the Bowtie Brand, it combines the smaller footprint of a compact car with the ride height and upright seating position of a crossover. Chevrolet gave it a thorough redesign for the 2017 model year, leading to the current, aggressive look, more in line with the brand’s current design aesthetic.

The 2019 Trax gets its power from a turbocharged 1.4-liter EcoTec four-cylinder engine. This gives the Trax 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque, which it routes to either the front wheels or all the wheels, depending on drivetrain choice.
