Chevrolet is planning on launching a brand new CUV and after the car maker has revealed a few sketches earlier this year, now Chevrolet has decided to share some photos depicting their upcoming brand new creation. Dubbed the Chevrolet Trax, the new CUV seems to share the same architecture as the Opel Mokka and the upcoming Buick Encore, and same as the latter it will feature two rows of seats for five passengers.
The upcoming Trax will apparently hit the market with one diesel engine and two gas units. The base-model will be equipped with a 1.6 liter gas engine and will be offered with front-wheel drive and a manual gearbox only. Unfortunately no performance figures regarding the 1.6 have been revealed so far.
Next in line will be the 1.4 liter turbo gas power plant that will produce 140 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. The 1.4 liter version will be offered with front-wheel drive and a manual gearbox as a standard, but all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission will be available as an optional extra.
Last but not least is the 1.7 liter diesel engine that aims to deliver higher fuel efficiency, alongside 130 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. Same as the 1.4 liter version, the six-speed automatic gearbox and the all-wheel drive are optional.
The upcoming CUV measures 4,248 in length, has a wheelbase of 2,555 mm and it's 1,776 mm in width. It is said that it will offer 358 liters and that it will come with 60/40 split rear seats, alongside a front passenger seat that can be folded flat.
Equipment will include Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system that includes a seven-inch HD color touch screen display as a standard.
Safety features include Electronic Stability Control, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descend Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Traction Control, Electronic Brake Distribution and Trailer Stability Assist.
No information about the price has been given yet, but the Chevrolet Trax 2014 is expected to make its debut at the Paris auto show held next month so more details will be revealed soon enough. We should also mention that despite the fact that the Trax aims to be a global vehicle, no word regarding a US release has reached our ears yet. Would you be interested in buying one?
