|Chevrolet has announced the 2016 Trax Midnight Edition, a blacked-out styling statement for the small SUV, offering customers a bold choice and adding to the momentum of the brand’s record 2015 crossover sales.|
Based on the LTZ trim, the Midnight Edition features black wheels, bezels, beltline molding and door handles, along with a black rear license plate applique. Inside, the seats are trimmed with gray accents and the floor mats feature gray piping.
Fusing small-car agility and utility convenience of an SUV, Trax offers up to 1,370 liters (48.4 cubic feet) of cargo space. A 1.4L turbocharged engine offers the efficiency of a small displacement engine, an EPA-estimated 6.9l/100km (34 mpg) highway (FWD versions), with the power of a larger engine on-demand. Connectivity features include an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. The hotspot provides a mobile hub that is on whenever the vehicle is on. Additional connectivity comes from MyLink technology, which features the segment’s only seven-inch color touch screen. Plus, Trax is the first in its class to offer Siri Eyes Free.
With a recently announced 5-star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Trax is one of the safest vehicles in its class, thanks to these features; a protective safety cage made of ultra high-strength steel, 10 standard air bags, a rearview camera and rear park assist.
Some of the highlights for the 2016 Chevy Trax, which comes standard, include all-wheel drive, an electric power steering, ample storage compartments, 60/40 split fold rear seats and remote keyless entry with remote start.
The 2016 Trax is joined by a full complement of Chevy crossovers and SUVs including the Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe and Suburban. For 2016, Trax builds on its recent launch with four new exterior colors: Crimson Metallic, Sable Metallic, Cyber Gray Metallic, Champagne Silver Metallic, and now the Midnight edition. There are three trims valid for the Chevy Trax: LS, LT and LTZ.
The Chevrolet Trax Midnight Edition goes on sale in late February, with a package price of $500, in addition to the Trax LTZ’s $26,125 suggested retail price.
