GM is “all-in” on the Chevy Trax, including the fully loaded Chevy Trax. Chevrolet has reinvested in the compact Trax crossover with the discontinuation of the Chevy Spark following the 2022 model year. The Chevy Trax now stands alone as GM’s most affordable vehicle, and with a much-needed restyling for the 2024 model year, there has never been a better time to be in the market for a Trax.

With GM’s new investment in the Trax and a huge emphasis on younger car buyers in their advertising, will we see anything dramatically different in the 2024 Trax? Will we see a price cut to get young people behind the wheel of an entry-level Chevy, or will we see the Trax get outfitted with a bunch of pricey technology to remain relevant to young buyers? Here is everything you need to know about the 2024 Chevy Trax and how much you can expect for a fully loaded one.
