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)

Corry-Silverado Drivers Benefit from 12.5 Million Miles of Durability Testing

2014 Silverado Durability Testing

All-new full-size pickups engineered to outlast the toughest tasks Corry-area owners can come up with

Each of the shiny new Silverados at Crotty Chevrolet Buick benefited from 12.5 million miles of durability testing before the first Corry, Warren and Erie-area customer ever received the keys.

From the scorching desert of Yuma, Ariz. to the sub-zero cold of Kapuskasing, Ontario, and the outdoor torture tests of General Motors’ Milford Proving Ground in Milford, Mich., the all-new full-size trucks completed more than 4 million miles of combined vehicle durability testing. In addition, a fleet of test vehicles racked up 8.2 million miles of real-world mileage.

Validation and durability testing pushed the trucks to their limits before they went into production in Silao, Mexico, Flint, Mich., and Fort Wayne, Ind. In many of the tests, the trucks are loaded to gross vehicle weight. While most Corry, Warren and Erie-area customers do not drive fully loaded on a regular basis, these tests ensure the Silverado can withstand even the most demanding conditions.

“The 2014 Silverado is Chevrolet’s strongest and most reliable truck yet,” said Robert Crotty of Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “The durability testing endured ensures the truck will continue to meet our owners’ needs throughout its life.”

????????????????????????????????

The trucks proved their mettle by traversing the Belgian blocks, splashing though the off-road-simulating grit trough, climbing and descending a 30 percent grade and driving at high speeds.

Grit intrusion is a challenge for any Corry, Warren and Erie-area off road vehicle. The grit trough test ensures the trucks have enough sealing to protect bearings and key suspension points, while a trip along the dust road helps determine all seals are functioning properly and that dust does not contaminate the bearings or other moving parts.

Some of the key durability improvements from the previous generation trucks include:
• A frame formed from high-strength steel to ensure it will not crack, even when Corry, Warren and Erie-area drivers load them to full capacity
• New four-wheel-disc brake system with Duralife™ brake rotors offer up to double the service life, along with brake-tuning revisions that improve pedal feel for more confident braking performance on any driving surface
• Anti-chip coating on the lower body side for extra protection from stones or gravel
