I have a 2019 awd LT Trax I purchased about 2 weeks ago has about maybe 280 miles on it and it is really sluggish. Doesn't hsve much low end torque at all. Barely makes it up a hill. Could it be a bad turbo? What is the boost number supposed to be at idle? Wife's 19 awd trax has a lot more power than mine. Hers is 8000 miles.

Take it back to the dealership and tell them to either figure out what's wrong with it or have a new one ready when you come back, then walk out like a boss. If it's not repaired or replaced, take the car and tell them your lawyer will be in touch with them soon.

Is that something I should expect from a new vehicle with low miles (280) that hasn't been broken In yet?

Im leasing a 2020 Trax AWD and love it. If I press the pedal it goes off like a bullet and in Rt 4 going uphill to Rutland it goes 90 mph without relenting nor losing steam. Other car is a Subaru Forester Limited and it’s fast also. I don’t need faster than those 2. And they are roomy in spite of their size.
Yes, it can’t copare with my 575 BMW
Biturbo but...

ddsans did you ever get this sorted out? Both my Trax and Encore will squeal the tires if I step on it, so they go pretty good. Trax is AWD and still squeals until the rear diff kicks in.
