The Chevrolet Trax compact crossover continues with its tradition of sporty and efficient transportation at an affordable price point. A major bonus for the 2022 model year is an upgraded engine that makes more horsepower and torque than its predecessor. Chevy also offers more appearance options so you can outfit your Trax just the way you want it. Although it may look small from the outside, there’s surprising space inside for up to five occupants.
The 2022 Trax is made in a pair of trims: the LS and LT. Under the hood is a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine making 155 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed automatic is the sole transmission on offer. Front-wheel drive (FWD) comes standard, but all-wheel drive (AWD) is available with either trim. The official EPA-estimated fuel economy for the FWD Trax is 24 mpg in city driving and 32 mpg on the highway; those numbers change a tad to 23 city/30 highway for the AWD Trax.
The lower-cost Trax trim, the LS, has a combination of basic and sophisticated features, including remote keyless entry, a 12-volt power outlet, dual USB ports, cloth upholstery, pockets on the front seatbacks, a 60/40-split folding rear bench seat, and a cargo area with four tie-down points. Its infotainment system uses a 7-inch touchscreen to manage Bluetooth audio streaming for up to two active devices, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker audio system. On the safety front, the LS comes with 10 airbags, a rearview camera, and a high-strength steel safety cage.
A handful of upgrade packages are offered: Cargo, Protection, Interior Protection, Lifestyle, and Tint and Cruise. The Cargo Package will supply a cargo net and a cargo mat, while the Protection Package issues all-weather floor mats and front and rear custom-molded black splash guards. The Interior Protection Package is similar, but it drops the splash guards in favor of a carpeted cargo mat. The Lifestyle Package contains a cargo tray and an accessory carrier mount, and the Tint and Cruise Package will provide deep-tinted rear glass and cruise control.
The LT gets the deep-tinted glass and cruise control as standard features along with remote start, heated side mirrors, projector-beam halogen headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, roof-mounted side rails, a 120-volt power outlet, synthetic leather seat trim, front passenger underseat storage, and a cargo shelf. Like the LS, the LT is eligible for the Cargo, Protection, Interior Protection, and Lifestyle packages, but it also qualifies for three new ones: Driver Confidence, LT Convenience, and Road Trip. The Driver Confidence Package will add side blind-zone alert, rear parking assist, and rear cross-traffic alert. The LT Convenience Package bundles keyless entry and ignition, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Road Trip Package has all-weather floor mats and roof-rack cross rails.
Three special edition models are offered for the LT trim: Midnight, Redline, and Sport. The Midnight Edition flaunts a totally blacked-out exterior, while the Redline Edition gets black elements, red-accented wheels, a red outlined Trax badge, and body-colored door handles. Like the Redline Edition, the Sport Edition also comes with black trim details, minus the red touches.
