The Covenant Car Company Inc. (TCCCI), the official Chevrolet distributor in the Philippines, is set to unveil the all-new Chevrolet Tracker this July 1. For those unaware, the Chevrolet Tracker is a subcompact SUV that competes with the likes of the MG ZS, Suzuki Vitara, Hyundai Kona, Geely Coolray, Volkswagen T-Cross, just to name a few.
First unveiled at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show, the Chevrolet Tracker is currently on sale in the Chinese and South American markets. In our case, there’s a high chance that our Chevrolet Tracker will be sourced from China. This all-new subcompact SUV might also replace the Trax, but nothing’s been confirmed at this point.
From the outside, the Chevrolet Tracker looks a lot more modern and dynamic than the aging Trax. Upfront, the Chevrolet Tracker features a bold grille that’s flanked by a sleek pair of LED headlights. Onto the sides, and you’ll see sleek body lines that give this small SUV a more dynamic appearance. The rear, on the other hand, looks quite similar to the Blazer midsize SUV being sold in the United States. There’s a pair of striking LED taillights that integrated neatly into the rear windows.
Chevrolet says that the Tracker has been designed for the “internet generation”, which means there’s a number of connected features to be expected here. Front and center is Chevy’s 8-inch MyLink infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, while drivers are greeted to a color multi-information display in between the analog gauges. Other interior features may include smart entry with push-button start, automatic climate control, leather seats, just to name a few.
Powertrain options are also unconfirmed at this point, though taking a look at our Chinese neighbors, the Tracker is powered by two of General Motors’ latest Ecotec turbocharged gasoline engines. The base engine is the Ecotec 325T 1.0-liter inline-3 gasoline engine that produces 123 hp and 180 Nm of torque, while the bigger option is a 1.3-liter inline-3 gasoline engine that produces 162 hp and 240 Nm of torque. The smaller engine is mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, while the bigger engine is mated ironically to a CVT.
The Chevrolet Tracker is also equipped with a number of advanced driver-assist features, such as automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, just to name a few.
Stay tuned to Go Flat Out PH as we announce on July 1 the unveiling of the all-new Chevrolet Tracker subcompact SUV.
