The Chevrolet Trax might be branded as the perfect urban car, but Chevrolet has decided to add an outdoorsy twist. During the 2016 SEMA Show earlier this month, the American carmaker introduced the new Chevrolet Trax Activ concept, which offers the perfect combination of the Trax’s urban style and an off-road ready stance.
“The Trax Activ concept is all about adventurous fun,” said Todd Parker, design director, exterior component and accessories. “We’ve increased its capability and matched it with styling enhancements that give it an all-new attitude—it’s a Trax that’s ready to make tracks.”
Chevrolet created the Trax Activ concept based on a 2017 Trax all-wheel-drive model. The carmaker lifted the suspension, widened the track, and added 18-inch Chevrolet Accessories wheels that are wrapped in all-terrain tires. The Trax also saw redesigned front and rear fascias.
With these design tweaks, the Trax Activ offers better ground clearance, approach and departure angles, and added grip when off the beaten path. The addition of fender flares also helps protect the vehicle and adds an off-road appeal that wasn’t there before.
As if these tweaks weren’t enough, Chevrolet also added an accessory Thule roof basket to help with cargo space, and a custom LED light bar to help in the dark.
While this concept isn’t available at dealerships, Red Wing can still help you find the right vehicle for you with Chevrolet Accessories.
