The 2022 Chevrolet Trax is a subcompact crossover popular at dealerships like the Cottonwood Chevrolet dealer, thanks to its outstanding driving dynamics, long list of standard features, and a price tag that’s easy on the wallet. Chevy’s smallest SUV features plenty of room in the cabin for passengers and their stuff. The Trax’s small size makes it perfect for urban drivers who need to maneuver in and out of tight spaces. Buyers looking for a great little subcompact should place the 2022 Trax at the top of their shopping list.
According to the Cottonwood Chevy dealer, the 2022 Chevrolet Trax seats five and comes in two trims: LS and LT. The Trax is powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 155 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque, up from last year, when the engine produced 138 hp. A six-speed automatic transmission sends power to the wheels. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 2022 Trax is rated at up to 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.*
