This the second confirmation from GM Brazil for the launch of the baby SUV following teasers posted on their Facebook page a few days ago. The Tracker is sold as the Trax in Europe and has badge engineered Buick and Opel versions around the world.

From this month end, dealerships will start training staff to handle sales and service of the product. By the end of August or in early September, the Chevrolet Trax would reach the market, priced between 67,000 reals (INR 17.67 lakhs) to 71,000 reals (INR 18.73 lakhs).

The SUV is 4.24 meters long and 1.77 meters wide, with a wheelbase of 2.55 meters and trunk capacity of 358 liters. Dimension wise, it is sandwiched by the EcoSport and Duster.

Mr. Jaime Ardila, President of GM Brazil, confirmed the Trax’s immediate launch in a video message.

The Tracker will come from GM’s production plant in Mexico. LT and LTZ variants strapped with a 1.8 16v Ecotec Flex engine producing 144 horsepower at max, would give GM a serious chance of making headway in a market segment that’s dominated by the EcoSport and Duster. Variants would come with a six-speed automatic gearbox or a five-speed manual.

Some of the features specified by Autos Segredos are sunroof, Chevrolet’s MyLink system, ABS brakes and front airbags.

  1. Sir the tracker looks like a worthy rival of fortuner. Are there any plans by GM to bring the model here in India?

      GM has the CAPTIVA pitted against the Fortuner.

      Its highly unlikey they would bring this to India. Its smaller than the DUSTER & its a Mini SUV, not a full grown sized SUV.

      GM won’t bring this model to INDIA as this model retails for 17 – 19 lakhs. Plus inorder to launch a new car, Manufacturing costs, testing etc all these drive up the costs & GM INDIA is into losses & it’s not in the mood to incur more losses.

      Cheers,
