Eco-Tech Engine

The 2018 Chevy Trax comes equipped with a 1.4-liter Eco-tech engine. This is the same engine used to power up the Buick edition. Thanks to GM’s determination to equip this Chevy Trax with a premium engine and Chevy’s demand for less power to beat its contenders, this innovation is likely to happen. The engine highlighted is a four-cylinder unit that churns out up to 140 horsepower and 150 pounds-feet of torque. It will also feature a 6-speed automatic transmission.
