In the last few years, the industry of cars has seen a sea change in the making of vehicles, since technology has taken a large leap in every section of its overall mechanisms. Be it in the capacity of engines that are now fuel economic than ever, be it the automatic transmission that doesn’t need the newbie drivers to shift the gears or be it the sensors that can detect every possible hazard that is coming up in the way, the modern day cars have it all. But if that makes you think all the models will be equally well equipped at the same price, then you are still moving on the wrong side. On the contrary, it is the trim tiers, their price tags and the sales strategy of the automakers that decide, how much technological support a particular car model will be bestowed with. Today we have handpicked the 2020 Chevrolet Trax, simply to quench our curiosity, that how much a small and basic car like this might be endowed with technical features. To get our answers we booked a test drive at the Mountain Home Chevrolet dealer showroom, and we found the following.
The 2020 Trax crossover is sold out by Chevy at a comparatively low price for the ride height it offers, which is also a technological trick to better the ride comfort level. But that’s the first thing we noticed, not the last. What we found next, was that apparently the 2020 Chevrolet Trax keeps its exterior profile low, only to give you a pleasant surprise inside. It definitely is a stand-out in its segment, if you go by the feature count which is rare to be found anywhere else within the same order price.
In other words the 2020 Chevrolet Trax earns most of its popularity by its value alone, among which a large share goes to the technological benefits that it provides to its users.
Technology Under the Hood
Available in LS, LT and Premier trims, the 2020 year lineup of Chevrolet Suburban runs either with its front-wheels or all-four-wheels. All the trim versions of the 2020 Chevrolet Trax use a 1.4-liter turbo-4 engine that is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission that together makes 138 of horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. This powertrain technology is capable enough to return a 29-mpg of fuel economy at the highways as per the EPA rating even after being driven with all-four-wheels.
The driving dynamics installed in every 2020 Chevrolet Trax shows the magic of technological advancements as all that combine their efforts to make the 2020 Trax maneuverable enough, even while driving through the congested and winding roads of the city.
Safety and Infotainment
The 2020 Trax shows its strength in terms of technological advancement in terms of safety and infotainment by installing a suite of ten airbags, stability control and a rearview camera as standard. As shown to us by the staff of Chevrolet dealer Mountain Home, even the base model gets the support of a 7.0-inch display for its infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, while the LT trim begets you alloy wheels, remote start, cruise control, while the range topping Premier adds up heated front seats, a Bose audio system, lane-departure and forward-collision warning systems and a moon roof.
