Chevrolet Introduces 2017 Trax Fresh design, premium interior complement safety, connectivity enhancements


Corry, PA  August 30, 2016– Building on its early success and the rapid growth of the segment, Chevrolet recently introduced the 2017 Trax – a more expressive take on one of America’s best-selling small SUVs.

Contemporary design elements, including an all-new front-end appearance and a new premium interior compose the visual updates, while new available active safety features and a new infotainment system – with available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility – expand its range of customer-focused technologies.

“Trax successfully established Chevrolet in the fastest-growing segment in the industry,” said Jon Andrus, Sales & Leasing Consultant of Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “We anticipate the refreshed 2017 Trax will attract both new and returning customers alike as it delivers a new design, more technology and more active safety.”  The 2017 Trax goes on sale at Crotty Chevrolet Buick this fall, offered in LS, LT and new Premier trims.

The Trax’s fresh, contemporary appearance reflects the modern face of Chevrolet. A new grille and headlamps echo the styling elements seen in new Chevrolet models such as the Malibu, Cruze and Volt, also available at Crotty Chevrolet Buick. The front fascia is all-new and incorporates Chevrolet’s new proportioned dual port grille. New, sleek headlamps flow around the corners and into the front fenders. Trax LS models feature new halogen reflector headlamps and uplevel LT and new Premier models have halogen projector headlamps with LED signature lighting. Chrome also accents the outboard fog lamp bezels. At the rear is a new fascia and dual taillamps, with the Premier model featuring LED signature lighting.

The Premier is also offered with new 18-inch aluminum wheels.  Premium interior A modified instrument panel is the foundation for the 2017 Trax’s premium interior enhancements. It interprets Chevrolet’s signature dual-cockpit design more expressively, with an upper dashboard hood that flows uninterrupted across the panel to enhance the perception of spaciousness.  The redesigned center instrument panel features greater visibility of a new 7-inch-diagonal MyLink color touch screen and Galvano chrome trim on the instrument panel and console contribute to the Trax’s premium ambiance. Premier models are offered with contrasting-color instrument panel trim that matches their leatherette seating trim.  Also new for 2017 is the instrument cluster, which features a new gauge display with prominent analog speedometer and tachometer readouts along with digital displays from the standard driver information center.cq5dam.web.1280.1280 (20)
