No CD Player?

It seems that the Trax does not offer a CD player at any trim level. Strange, because the Encore does...

That is an interesting observation.

Who needs CDs any more anyway?

51.2 year old white males who drive all purchases in the auto industry. IF CD players are as superfluous as you say, why does Encore get one? Who needs CD's right

Perhaps the next redesign or facelift will see something similar happening to the Encore. It is pretty true that CDs are kinda defunct now though. Many computers don't even have a CD drive now. You just download or use a USB key for everything.

but 51.2 year old white males still make use of CD's...

CD's are being kept around because they know the 51.2 year old male has a good chunk of cash invested in their CD collections after a nearly 20 year run on the market...

I guess they figured there would be a younger crowd involved with the trax and so getting rid of CD players their would be the better move rather than in the Encore, which more than likely attracts an older crowd.

Yea that is probably it. The higher price point of the Encore is thought to attract older folks while the Trax is aimed at younger people. Chevy has made no secret of aiming the Trax at a younger generation. They have been trying to emphasize the technology of the vehicle, for example.

Over all Buick has been known as a brand to attract an older demographic, although it's changing slowly with products that attract a younger demographic... there's no escaping their history any time soon.

I could be wrong, but it's one of the things I think could be the reason.

Yes but I have the cash to purchase NOW and I WANT A CD PLAYER... I'm 65 and have no care for fiddling with gizmos, I want simple to use, simple to drive. Gas goes where?

While I do understand where you are coming from, I think that taking a very short amount of time to learn how to hook up a phone or iPod to your car isn't that hard. You literally attach it with a cord and that is it. You can have access to far more music and you never have to switch CDs. Don't be afraid of learning something new.
