2021 Chevy Trax Gets A New And More Powerful Powerplant
Volkswagen did not reveal the pricing details of the 2021 Chevy Trax.
General Motors introduced the Chevrolet Trax in the US in 2015 with only one engine choice i.e. a 1.4L turbo. However, that has changed for the 2021 Chevy Trax as it gets a fresh and more powerful powerplant.
For the same displacement, the engine will generate 153 horsepower (114 kilowatts) and 177 pound-feet (240 Newton-meters) of torque against 138 hp (103 kW) and 148 lb-ft (201 Nm) created by the 2020 model’s mill. While you may feel it is a stronger version of the 1.4L turbo, it is not actually. It is a completely new powerplant.
The previous Trax versions were employing the 1.4L LUV mill – a port-injected powerplant built on the first-generation Ecotec engine family. The new engine employs direct injection.
Although a more robust mill was the need of the hour for the Trax, this one addition will not solve all the issues associated with the crossover.
Volkswagen did not reveal the pricing details of the 2021 Chevy Trax. For the amenities it offers, the previous model was overpriced.
