The very first spy shots showing the Chevrolet Trax testing in China. The Chevrolet Trax will be made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture. The China-made Chevrolet Trax will debut on the April 2014 Beijing Auto Show and will be launched on the Chinese auto market in the second half of 2014.
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 1.4 turbo and will also be available with a 1.6 with 115hp and 155nm. This will bring the price of the Trax down to about 130.000 yuan.
