I was wondering when the Trax would be updated. Back when we bought our LS three years ago, there was little competition. Now that most everybody has something in the segment, GM has to up its game. There are choices now.
The new Ford EcoSport looks like it is aimed squarely at the Trax. And it has a rated towing capacity of 1,400 lbs. for the 1.0 L engine and 2,000 lbs. for the 2.0 L engine, where the GM says not to tow at all with the Trax. We occasionally tow with our Trax anyway, but that is another discussion.
Not a fan of the EcoSport side hinged tailgate though.
