The Chevrolet Trax will be launched on the China car market in April. Price will start around 130.000 yuan and will end around 170.000 yuan. The Chinese name of the Chevrolet Trax will be ‘TRAX chuangku’, best translated as Trax Creating Cool.
The Chevrolet Trax will be made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture. The Chevrolet Trax is basically the same car as the Buick Encore, but with another name and another front. The Buick Encore is already in production in China at Shanghai-GM so adding the Trax won’t cost GM much money.
Price of the Buick Encore starts at 149.900 yuan and ends at 196.900 yuan. Lone engine is a 1.4 turbo with 140hp and 200nm, mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. The Chevrolet Trax will get the same engine and likely a 1.6 as well, which will be positioned below the 1.4 turbo.
