According to GM Authority, the base LS trim of the 2025 Chevy Trax for the Canadian market will now come with more standard amenities than the 2024 Chevy Trax at the same trim level. This includes the inclusion of a package that was previously optional.
As a result, some of the compact crossover utility vehicle’s earlier standard features will no longer be available on the 2025 Chevy Trax because they have been replaced by features in the package.
More specifically, the LS Convenience Package (RPO code ZFT) will now come standard on the 2025 Chevy Trax LS trim. On the 2024 Trax, this package was available as a $895 option. It rounds up the following components (RPO codes in parenthesis):
- BTV Remote Start
- Rear floor mats with carpeting (B35)
- Power-adjustable heated mirrors outside (DLF)
- Mirror caps in the body colour (DP6) 17-inch aluminium wheels painted silver (RSE)
Consequently, the non-heated exterior power-adjustable mirrors (RPO code DWV) and the 17-inch steel wheels with covers (RPO code PWP) are no longer available for the Canadian 2025 model-year Trax.
Only minor adjustments and upgrades are made to the 2025 Chevy Trax in preparation for the debut of the brand-new second generation of the small crossover for the 2024 model year. Among these are Cypress Grey (paint code GBD) and Marina Blue Metallic (paint code GKN), two new exterior paint colours added to its range.
In the meantime, Blue Glow Metallic (GGK), Cayenne Orange Metallic (GFQ), Fountain Blue (GLN), and Harvest Bronze Metallic (GZF) will no longer be available as paint colours for the 2025 model. By mid-December 2023, these four colours had also been sold out for the 2024 Chevy Trax and were no longer available for purchase.
January 2024 is anticipated to be the start of the 2025 Chevy Trax order period, with dealerships able to place orders ahead of time. In the meanwhile, the GM Changwon facility in South Korea is scheduled to begin regular production (SORP) of the 2025 Chevy Trax on March 4, 2024. With the introduction of the second generation, production was moved there from the GM Bupyeong facility in the same nation.
Recall that the 2025 Trax for the Canadian market is powered by a 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine that is turbocharged and produces 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. In the meantime, the E85-capable turbocharged 1.2L I3 LBP engine for the model year is fitted to the Trax sold in the United States.
The sole drivetrain available is FWD, and the GM six-speed automatic gearbox facilitates cog swaps. The GM VSS-F vehicle set is what the 2025 Chevy Trax rides on behind the body panels.
