Chevrolet Trax Successor Rendered – And It Doesn’t Look Half Bad

The Chevrolet Trax, or Tracker as it’s known in Brazil and Russia, came out in 2012 as an alternative to other subcompact SUVs, such as the Nissan Juke.

GM played it safe and cut down on production costs by using the Gamma II platform as the foundation stone for the Trax, Opel/Vauxhall Mokka and Buick Encore.

Since then, the automotive giant parted ways with its European brands, which were sold to PSA, but the Chevy Trax remains in production to this date, and so does its overseas sibling. GM appears to be working on the successor of the Trax/Encore, as a recent reader scoop that was sent to us shows – and this time there’ll be no Opel/Vauxhall derivative.

As the initial story revealed, the prototype actually raises more questions than it answers, such as which brand exactly is behind it and what platform it will be based on.

We guess we’ll find out sooner or later – but until then, Kleber Silva has imagined what the second-gen Trax might look like. The renderings appear to be influenced by the brand’s updated models, such as the RS versions of the Cruze and Malibu, and to be honest, the finished product doesn’t look half bad, except for the wheels that seem oversized,

  • Six_Tymes

    yeah, i agree, this looks pretty good. maybe Chevy should hire whoever did this render.

  • Honda NSX-R

    Front needs some work but overall not too bad

  • caddy45

    Looks nice. A lot of new Q5 vibes.

  • WalthamDan

    Much more integrated styling then the current version. Agree on the front needing some toning down.

  • Paul

    They need the person who did the render as one of their designers. The new grille styling doesn’t come off very well here though.

  • Dr Strangefingger

    Im digging this.

  • Galaxie
    • Six_Tymes

      THAT’S IT.

      so what is this brand? is that production coming out or a concept?

      • Galaxie

        It is a Chinese car brand which purchased the logo patent of fallen German carmarker Borgward. The car has been on sale in the Chinese market for over a year now.

        • haudit

          Not strictly accurate. It’s true that the money behind the revival of Borgward is Chinese, but the company itself, along with the majority of the designers and at least some of the engineers, is based in Germany.

      So not a rendering, but a photoshopped ripoff. Color me unimpressed.

    • That looks very much like a Haval.

  • Rocket

    Hmmm … I think I taste a hint of Stelvio. Even with the exaggerated mug, it still works better than the current model. But if you’ve seen the Equinox, Traverse, and well … anything wearing a bowtie, you know this ain’t happening. Look at what they did to the Camaro.

  • Christian

    They can’t build it before the Opel version has landed….. JESUS!

    • Moveon Libtards

      Jesus is King.

  • Marty

    Yes… I didn’t read that.
    As a matter of fact, I rather spent two minutes writing this than reading that.

    • james bond

      Lol go away

  • Moveon Libtards

    From the 13 year old who writes in all CAPS because he desperately needs attention…

  • Puddingpopper

    The front end branding of chevy cars is just plain ugly

  • BtheKing

    That looks like a smaller Ford Edge to me, but I don’t think it’s rendered small enough to be the Trax/Encore replacement. The Encore/Trax are rather stubby, & probably will continue to be so, as to not overlap with the Equinox. Also… note that the “Opel Mokka”/ Buick Encore base is really manufactured in South Korea — not in an Opel plant. So it’s not a problem for GM to make a replacement — one that Opel would NOT be able to sell.

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    The key here is “rendered” because although it “doesn’t look half bad” it will likely not look like this. NO WAY GM will put that large of a wheel/tire combo on a Equinox let alone a Trax.
