And how much you can spend if you go nuts is surprising.
The online configurator for the refreshed 2024 Chevrolet Trax is now available and starts with the base LS trim at $21,495 with the $1,095 destination fee. The 1RS begins at $23,195, the LT starts at $23,395, while the 2RS and Activ trims top the range at $24,995.
The small and recently spruced-up crossover sports a 1.2-liter turbocharged engine throughout the range and is one of the cheapest little crossovers out there, so, of course, we went nuts to see how much you could actually spend.
Now, a reasonable person on a budget wanting a good little commuter vehicle might go for the LT trim in the lovely Harvest Bronze Metallic paint, add some heated seats via the LT Convenience Package and have a great little runaround for $23,990. However, we have the capacity to be unreasonable when it comes to cars and started with the Activ trim to see how much you can ultimately spend on a Trax.
There's not a lot in the way of packages and options, so you can't overprice the hell out of a Trax like you can some models from other brands.
We started with the Nitro Yellow paint, which is one of the two cost-option colors at $395. There's no upgrade on the black 18-inch aluminum wheels available from the factory, and going to the Jet Black with Artemis accents seats is a no-cost upgrade. However, the Driver Confidence Package, with features that include blind-spot monitoring is a $650 upgrade, and the sunroof package (which, inexplicably, also includes a wireless charger) is $895. Adding the engine block heater also includes active front shutters for $125, then a front license plate bracket and keyless entry keypad add $40 and $295, respectively.
From there, it's all-weather floor liners for $295, a cargo net for $75, a cargo liner for $150, and a sport pedal kit for $150. Finally, you can add a highway safety kit for $125 and rear park assist for $145. That brings the fully-load and optioned price up to $26,605 and manages to defeat our unreasonability.
