General Motors is planning to launch the new Trax in Canada but the small SUV won’t become available in the United States.
After it was officially presented to the public last month during the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the new Chevrolet Trax is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the North American based automaker announced that the model won’t be available in the United States but it will be launched in Canada. The Chevy Trax will be a direct competitor to models like the Skoda Yeti or the Nissan Qashqai and it will be launched in Europe by the end of 2012.
Rumor has it that on the Old Continent, the Chevrolet Trax will be offered with a choice of three engines, which includes a 1.4 liter gasoline, a 1.6 liter gasoline and a 1.7 liter turbo diesel. Besides the standard front-wheel drive, the 2013 Chevrolet Trax will also hit the market with optional all-wheel drive, on versions equipped with the 1.4 liter turbocharged engine or with the 1.7 liter turbo diesel unit. The upper versions of the 2013 Chevrolet Trax will get goodies such as the Chevrolet MyLink system. More details on the new GM crossover will be announced close to its European launch.
