2017 Chevrolet Trax Review

If you’re looking for a respectable passenger space, excellent crash test scores, lots of standard equipment for the money, and plenty of storage slots, the new 2017 Chevrolet Trax is worth a consideration. Additionally, the suburban comes with plenty of technologies, it’s easier to pack in compact spaces, easy to drive, and inexpensive. However, if you’re looking for a refined interior, and quick acceleration, the Trax may not turn out to be what you hoped for. Its release date should be expected in early 2017. 

Quite a few automakers have been surprised at a time of lower gas prices and a surging interest in the subcompact crossover segment. Having launched the Buick Encore, however, General Motors isn’t one of them, as the Encore’s resounding success in the segment led Chevrolet to conceptualize the Trax (Trax and Buick both share the same mechanical underpinnings).

The Trax occupies the space between Chevy’s XXL and the XS. Although the Trax offers plenty of practicality, those wishing for more towing capacity, and efficiency will find the Equinox a better alternative. However, for those residing in tight urban areas, the new Trax will undoubtedly make more sense.

Its compactness aside, the new model offers plenty of other likable features as well. The interior is easy to get into, and once inside, you’ll realize the extensive use of premium materials used on most surfaces. The seats, to start with, are comfortable and supportive and will make long-haul trips comfortable and memorable.

For general use, though, the Trax isn’t as exciting as it may suggest during your first encounter with it in your local dealership. Acceleration is lackluster and the four-cylinder engine is only suitable for city driving. Steering and handling are below par, while the ride quality in general can exhibit a significant amount of choppiness on rough roads.

As such, it would be advisable to check what its competition offers before penning it down. Rivals include the Mazda CX-3, Fiat 500X, and the Jeep Renegade. Our favorite in this segment happens to be the CX-5 – it is an intricate balance between storage space and seating comfort, best on-road dynamics, and incredible all-road capability.

Trim Options – 2017 Chevrolet Trax

The new five-passenger, subcompact 2017 Chevrolet Trax crossover is offered in LTZ, LT, and LS trim levels. You have the option of specifying between a FWD and an AWD system.

Exterior Changes & 2017 Chevrolet Trax Interior Review

Standard accessories and features available for the base Trax LS include a fold-flat front passenger seat, full power accessories, a telescopic-and-tilt steering wheel, 16” steel wheels, Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, an auxiliary audio jack, a seven-inch touchscreen display, smartphone app connectivity, a rear folding 60/40-split seat, automatic headlights, a six-speaker sound system, a rear cargo cover, a USB port, air conditioning, and GM’s OnStar telematics.

Upgrading to the Trax LT adds you a 110-V power outlet, remote engine start, a rear privacy glass, a satellite and HD radio, heated exterior mirrors, cruise controls, alloy wheels, and front passenger storage compartment.

The top-of-the-line Trax LTZ offers a 7-speaker Bose audio system, a rearview auto-dimming mirror, rear parking sensors, 18” alloy wheels, a leatherette premium vinyl upholstery, a six-way power driver seat, and heated front seats.

Options offered include a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, full leather upholstery, a six-way power driver seat, rear parking sensors, a sunroof, and tri-zone automatic climate control. Packages, color palette, and standalone options should be expected on its release date.

2017 Chevrolet Trax Engine Specs & Fuel Economy

Motivation for the 2017 Chevrolet Trax is offered by a 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine beneath its hood, paired to a six-speed automatic transmission system. The system is tasked with the sole responsibility of routing the power generated – 138 hp and 148 lbs. ft. of torque to either the FWD or the AWD.

Zipping from 0-60 mph takes under 10.0 seconds – lackluster acceleration relative to what other small crossover in its class offer.

When we come to the fuel economy, EPA says we should look forward to fuel economy ratings of about 24/31/27 mpg in the city/highway/combined with an AWD, and 26/34/29 mpg with the FWD.

2017 Chevrolet Trax Release Date & Price Estimate

The 2017 Chevrolet Trax price should be expected to start from an MSRP of about $20,300. When should it be offered for sale? I would wager its release sometime in early 2017.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Bone Collector Concept 

The new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Bone Collector comes loaded with Chevy accessories, impressive brake upgrades, and a styling exterior design. Leveraging on the versatility, personalization, and strength possibilities of Chevy’s own Silverado 1500, the new truck comes with a unique personality that traverses many aspects. Its release date should be expected this Spring.

This is what Sandor Piszar – director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing, had to say about Chevy trucks, “They demonstrate what’s possible through assurance, inspiration, and personalization of the industry’s longest-lasting, and most dependable full-size trucks. They have made it possible for consumers to go where they want and this has been as a result of the inspiration that our vehicles give them.”

There are plenty of technologies such as the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities along with front-end design styling. The Collector Concept is based on the Silverado 1500 High Country crew cab. It wears a new off-road package (a front push bar, sport bar, assist steps), larger, aggressive off-road tires, and 22” black aluminum wheels.

Also in the cargo bed is a unique drawer system, a cooler mounted just behind the cab, and secure stowage of outdoor gear. Additionally, the Chevrolet Accessories also bundles an LED off-road light bar mounted on the sport bar to aid it illuminate at night.

The Realtree Bone Collector green graphics are complemented by the eye-catching camo theme, which incorporates Michael Waddell’s signature. The theme extends further to the bungee cords and tie-down rings in the bed, used to secure camping gear. The green color also extends to the six-piston disc brake calipers.

Interior wise, there are plenty of likable features and technologies as well. These features include the green-tinted lens on the unique instrument cluster display, custom embroidered front-seat headrests, leather-trimmed bucket seats, matching stitching accents, and floor liners.

Others include Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability, tri-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, full power accessories, exterior heated mirrors, adaptive xenon headlights, and adaptive cruise control.

Exterior Changes & 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Bone Collector Interior Review

One of the most prevalent changes in the Silverado would be the paint scheme. As already mentioned above, the doors come with Michael Walden’s signature touch. Also, as can be found on Chevy’s accessory guide, there are host of exterior upgrades to consider.

The Realtree Bone Collector rides on Chevy’s optional 22” mud-terrain-wrapped-tires aluminum wheels. Weatherproof and lockable storage for guns, tools and any other gear. Rear-facing LED off-road tires, tubular step bars, and a more-menacing push bar.

Even with no photos provided for the truck’s interior, the camo theme continues deep into the cabin. The gauge cluster gets line green-tented lenses, while the dashboard has the Realtree camo pattern. The steering wheel and leather seats have a lime green-matching stitching as well.

Additionally, an ambient lighting package, under-seat storage system, and doorsill plates with Silverado logos are offered on the Chevy Accessories items.

Although no one knows its exterior colors, standalone options and packages, and interior trimmings – one things is for sure – Chevy will certainly provide additional clues before its release date. So, keep checking the post for more updates.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Bone Collector Engine Specs

Under the hood of the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Bone Collector is a 6.2L V8 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission system. The system is tasked with the responsibility of forwarding the power generated – 420 hp and 460 lbs. ft. of torque to either the RWD or the AWD, based on the driver’s setting.

It would roughly need about 5.5 seconds to get past 60 mph, and can lag a 12,000 pounds trailer. Rumors also allege the new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Bone Collector can achieve a top speed of 125 mph.

While eliminating brake fade, the massive six-piston calipers aid in slowing the truck in a much shorter distance. The brake package is also offered as an accessory package that will cost you extra money.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD

Available in Silverado 1500HD, 2500HD, and 3500HD, variety of configurations, improved interior materials, and supremely capable powerplants, the new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD lineup is undoubtedly an excellent choice for anyone shopping in the heavy-duty pickup truck segment. Its date of release should be expected in February next year if online reports are to be trusted.

These trucks offer nothing short of solid built quality, an available CNG fueling for the regular V8, strong diesel engines, serene and refined highway rides, ad impressive towing and hauling capacities are just some of the features which you should look forward to once the vehicle is made available.

Overall design and material quality of the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD lineup is, to say the least, impressive. The materials used are of high-quality and lots of upscale technologies has been invested in the new trucks. Additionally, the gauge cluster graphics are a snap regardless of whether it is day or night. Spending an extra gets you handsome accent stitching and accents to match the already sumptuous cabin.

The central display comes located intricately between the speedometer and the tachometer and is easy to use unlike the previous on which received widespread criticism for its unresponsiveness. Also, Chevy has now upgraded its MyLink infotainment system which was also a source of dissatisfaction in the previous model.

 

The seats are comfortable and supportive. For 2017, Chevy has now provided the vehicle with a tilt and telescopic steering wheel unlike the previous model which only came with a tilt-only steering. When it comes to its hood, the vehicle offers sprightly turbocharged engines ranging from an output of just 397 hp to about 650.

Aiding the Silverado to achieve an easier and smoother towing are these standard features: automatic grade braking, diesel exhaust braking, trailer sway control, and integrated cruise control. However, the segment the new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD is coming into is heavily contested and includes rivals such as the 2017 Ram 2500, and the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty. Although some of the rivals offer better power and off-road performance, the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD is undoubtedly a very capable workhorse.

Trims Available – Chevrolet Silverado HD

We expect the new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD to be offered in regular, double, and crew cab body styles with a choice of either 2WD or 4WD. Additionally, we should expect trim levels such as Work Truck, LTZ, and LTZ trims.

2016 Chevrolet Trax

If you value practicality over power and style, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax is the vehicle for you. With a useful hatchback shape and some nifty fuel economy specs, the car is a very useful vehicle for city drivers and from getting through a tough jam on the road. It is a perfect vehicle for city dwellers and poses a very nice package for any person who wants to take it out for a drive.

The Chevrolet Trax is a vehicle that belongs to a new breed of crossover vehicles that have started to emerge all over. It is a vehicle for a contemporary person and style wise goes with the same sort of look. Comparing it with its sibling, the Equinox vehicle, this one comes with a larger level of different amenities and for a lower price at that. It is also hosts least-expensive all-wheel drive on the market.

Honestly speaking, the Chevrolet Trax is a less fancy version of the Encore car from Buick. This is because of the fact that both cars are built on the Chevrolet Sonic architecture and it took a while for the car to come to the US market because of this. The thing is that the crash test ratings were not satisfactory and that the car needed some time in order to get to the market when the numbers were fixed. With the enhanced safety features and a bunch of all new stuff the 2016 Chevrolet Trax lands at our doors and we are excited to have it and welcome it. Read the rest of the review to find out why.

 

2016 Chevrolet Trax exterior

As we mentioned, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax shares the underpinnings form the Chevrolet Sonic car and is basically a less expensive Buick Encore car. But there is a lot more going for the Trax that you did not know nor expected. Chevy has decided to add some truck characteristics to its car, of course this is only style wise speaking, and it goes well for the overall look. The car has two-box small hatchback body and is taller looking as well. The greatest difference with the Encore is that it does not uses the swoopy liens that this car has but actually incorporates a bit of a square look. It makes the exterior bland enough that it does make the look generic enough to be as inoffensive as possible.

 

2016 Chevrolet Trax rear

2016 Chevrolet Trax side

Perhaps a small throwback is the fact that the base SL version rides on the wheels that made of steel and have silver plastic wheel covers. The base level displays its inexpensive nature with black door-mirror pedestals and the missing chrome beltline strip. The roof line is the same for all trim levels of the car and shows the budget nature of the car that Chevy is going for this year. The higher trim levels get some better wheels though, as you can get some 16-inch alloy wheels one in the LT trim and 18-inch allow on the LTZ level.

2016 Chevrolet Trax rear side

 

Interior

Inside the Trax, it has managed to adopt the Chevy’s twin cockpit interior combination in a great way so as it has a more practical use, utilitarian look and overall a much upright configuration. The instrument cluster is the same as seen in the Chevy Sonic, as it uses tachometer paired with a 3.5-inch monochrome display screen which has a numeric speedometer with various other bar gauges and warning lights.

2016 Chevrolet Trax interior

This is not the only thing that characterizes the new Trax as it comes with a black-cloth upholstery that are made with some light oblong shapes on it. Combined with the contrasting blue stitching gives a nice touch to the inside of the car and enhances the atmosphere of the inside to a whole different level. The higher level can come with an added look changes so the LTZ for instances uses two-tone vinyl upholstery with some patterned trim over parts of the console to relieve the black interior that is present in all of the interiors of the Trax. This makes the 2016 Chevrolet Trax much more practical and both the combinations of the inside and out bring to a completely stylish car.

2016 Chevrolet Trax inside

 

Engine

Under the hood of the new 2016 Chevy Trax you will find an engine which is present in all of the trim levels of the car. It uses the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. The engine can make a peak torque output from just 1,850 rpm. It also combines with a six-speed automatic transmission system that has a wide range of gear ratios which accounts for a relatively quick acceleration of the car. The Fuel economy specs are perhaps the best one in the class as the car can make 9 mpg combined for the front-wheel-drive version, or 27 mpg with the all-wheel drive. All in all, a suitable engine setup for the car that provides you with just what you ask from it.

2016 Chevrolet Trax engines

 

Price and released date

The Chevrolet Trax is going to be available from next year and it is going to receive a release date come January. It will be offered for the first time at the US and Canadian market so we are presuming that the car is going to receive higher sales than last year and that the popularity of it will rise because of its inclusion to some new markets. This may also be achieved as the car has a very low price range, as it comes available at a base MSRP of just 20,300 USD.

 

 

2016 Chevy Impala

The upcoming new 2016 Chevy Impala is will not be released with significant changes especially considering how 2013 year model got a radical reinvention. We can all reminisce that it was only last year when the hybrid-powered eAssist model got discontinued. Also, all of the models got an all-new features: 4G data connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot capability. Additionally, making an entry was a gasoline/CNG bi-fuel model. For 2016, however, we should expect very mild changes made to its vital organs, but nothing revolutionary. You should also take a look at other models out there in the market which include Toyota Avalon, which has a roomy interior, a super smooth V6 and a hybrid model off course. Another sleek vehicle worth taking a look at would be the well-equipped Kia Cadenza and Hyundai Azera, which peck at Avalon’s heels. Winding up your likely shopping list would be the luxurious RWD Chrysler 300 model. You might also consider Hyundai Genesis as well.
But should you be inclined to purchase any of the above vehicles, our best advice would be to try and test-drive the Impala first before making your ultimate decision.

Exterior Changes & Interior Photos – 2016 Chevy Impala

The upcoming new Impala will certainly feature the same trims as last year: base LS, LT, and LTZ trims. A further subdivision continues for the LT and LTZ models, breaking to 1LT and 2LT, and 1LTZ and 2LTZ sub-trims respectively. In Layman language, the numbers signify whether the 4-cylinder (1) or the V6 (2) is beneath the bonnet.
Some of the standard features that will be on the base LS model include automatic headlights, 18-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, air-conditioning, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a trip computer, , an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat, full power accessories, OnStar emergency communications with 4G Wi-Fi capability, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and a 4.2-inch color display and a 6-speaker sound system with a satellite radio, CD player, a USB port with iPod connectivity, an auxiliary input. The LS Convenience package adds foldable rear headrests and a cargo net and rear parking sensors.

2016 Chevy Impala side

The 1LT adds heated side mirrors, 18-inch alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dual-zone automatic climate control and the MyLink infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth audio connectivity, two additional USB ports, voice controls, an SD card slot, HD radio, voice-to-text messaging capability for certain smartphones and Internet radio smartphone app compatibility.

Options on the LT are mainly grouped into different packages. The Advanced Safety package adds a lane-departure warning system, a forward collision warning system, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

There’s also a Premium Audio and Sport Wheels package, which includes ambient interior lighting, 19-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, a 120-volt power outlet and an eleven-speaker Bose sound system. The Navigation package adds keyless ignition and entry and adds navigation to MyLink system. The Convenience package includes a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, remote ignition and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a universal garage door opener.

The LTZ starts with the 1LTZ sub-trim, basically a fully optioned 1LT plus leather upholstery, but minus the auto-dimming rearview mirror, rear spoiler, sunroof, Bose stereo and 120-volt power outlet. It’s also eligible for a couple of options packages of its own. The Comfort and Convenience package adds the auto-dimming rearview mirror, exterior ambient lighting, a heated power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, ventilated front seats, and driver memory settings. The Premium Audio package throws in the 120-volt outlet and Bose system.

Engine Specs – 2016 Chevrolet Impala

All of the Impalas already mentioned, according to our own assumptions, will come equipped with a 6-speed auto transmission system and a FWD system. The base engine is a 2.5L 4-cylinder drivetrain rated at 195 hp and 187 pounds of torque. The EPA estimates are likely to be similar to those of the previous model which was rated at 18/28/21 mpg in the city/highway/combined. Another powerplant is a 3.6L V6 capable of cranking out about 305 horsepower and 264 pounds of torque.

Engine

Despite the fact that the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will come with a standard 4.3L EcoTec3 V-6 the officials at Chevy maintain that there will be an optional 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8.

The V-6 is capable of producing 285HP and 305 lb-ft of torque while achieving an EPA estimation of 24 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg on the city. The V-8 as aforementioned will add 70HP on the V6 to reach 355HP and also an addition of 78 lb-ft of torque to reach 383 lb-ft of torque.

The two engines are integrated onto a 6 speed automatic transmission while the 4WD comes as an option and the 2WD ultimately as the standard.
