2017 Chevy Trax Starts At Just $21,895

Chevrolet has extensively updated its little Trax crossover for 2017 with a whole slate of enhancements. And now it has announced just how little you’ll have to pay to put yourself (or your daughter) behind the wheel.

Why your daughter, you ask? Because at nearly 60 percent, the Trax has the largest proportion of female owners of any model that Chevy makes. And starting at $21,896 (including destination), it’s ideally positioned for young drivers.

That’s the price for the base LS model in front-drive spec. The Trax is also offered in LT and Premier trims (the latter replacing the previous LTZ) for $23,795 and $26,995, respectively.

Of course upgrading to all-wheel drive adds more to the bottom line as well. The 2017 Chevy Trax LS AWD starts at $23,395, the LT at $25,295, and the Premier at $28,495.

The adjusted pricing represents only a slight price bump over the outgoing model, whose starting MSRP came in $700 lower at $21,195 (delivered). That makes the Trax one of the most affordable new crossovers on the market, though not strictly speaking the cheapest. Several Jeeps undercut its price, together with some Japanese rivals like the Honda HR-V, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and Mazda CX-3. Deliveries begin in the fall.
