Primary idea for new 2024 Trax is to combine the versatility of an SUV with the practicality of a compact car. A number of hardware components have been borrowed from existing Trailblazer. But 2024 Trax has larger dimensions, with a wheelbase of 106.3 inch (2.7 meters). In comparison, Trailblazer has a wheelbase of 103.9 inch (2.66 meters).

While Trailblazer is 173.5 inch (4.41 meters) in length, new Trax will be 178.6 inch (4.54 meters) long. New Trax will be 61.4 inches tall. As compared to current Trax, the 2024 model will be 11 inches longer and 2 inches wider. In terms of usability, the larger dimensions translate into 3-inches of extra legroom for rear passengers and 6 cubic feet of additional cargo space.

Even though performance numbers are less in comparison to current model, 2024 Trax will offer faster acceleration. It can reach 0-60 mph (96 kmph) in 8.6 seconds. This is approximately one second faster than the existing Trax. New 2024 Trax will also offer higher fuel efficiency. These improvements have been made possible through platform optimization and better use of materials.
