2015 Chevrolet TraxYou can find the current 2015 Chevrolet Trax right here at Chevrolet of Homewood, the leading Calumet City area Chevy dealer. This subcompact SUV that just debuted last year is officially one of the most efficient crossover SUVs on the road today according to Kelley Blue Book, the leading source for automotive intelligence. The new Trax is all new for this year and it fits right into the Chevrolet lineup just below the Equinox.

Chevy Trax: One of the Most Efficient SUVs Around

US News says that the 2015 Chevrolet Trax is among the ten most fuel efficient SUVs on the market today. Kelley Blue Book said that, “The all-new Chevrolet Trax is part of a burgeoning subcompact SUV segment combining versatility with affordability.”

With its 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine good for 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque, the Trax has plenty of power, but it’s still good for up to 26 mpg city/34 mpg highway/29 mpg combined based on EPA estimates with front wheel drive and the standard six-speed automatic transmission. The optional all-wheel drive transmission only knocks a little off that estimate with 24 mpg city/31 mpg highway/27 mpg combined. Those put this little crossover among the best in the crossover class.

In its review of the Chevy Trax, Kelley Blue Book also praised the SUVs 15 storage compartments and the available all wheel drive, which they “recommend springing for if you live in an area that experiences heavy rain and/or snow.” Of course, we are plenty familiar with snow here in Chicagoland.

The Trax also boasts smart features, like the standard MyLink infotainment system with 7-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration, the latest OnStar telematics system with wireless internet connection and mobile WiFi hotspot, and much more. All around this is one smart little SUV that might be perfect for your needs—and you know that you won’t be paying for the SUV utility at the pump.
