Chevy is updating the Trax for MY2016, and here I've got all the details on what those updates entail. It's nothing to get overly excited about, but it does keep things nice and fresh.

First, we are losing 4 exterior color options, including this forum's favorite Ruby Red Metallic. The others being Victory Red, Blue Topaz Metallic and Satin Steel Metallic. We do get some new colors in their place though. Those are Crimson Metallic, Sable Metallic, Mosaic Black Metallic (only for fleets), Cyber Gray Metallic and Champagne Silver Metallic.

There are also 18-inch aluminum wheels in Midnight Silver being added to the 2016 Chevy Trax.

Moving to the inside of the car, the Plus Package is now know as the Convenience Package. The factory-standard 6-month OnStar Directions and Connections trial plan now doesn't come with Hands-Free Calling minutes.

The 1FL Equipment Group now includes front and rear carpeted floor mats, and the power driver seat is now an optional extra for the Trax 1FL.

The 2016 Chevy Trax replaces the older MH8 and MHB six-speed transmissions with RPO-level MNK six-speed automatic transmissions.

Pricing and engines should stay consistent between 2015 and 2016 model years.

At least carpeted floor mats are standard.
Wouldn't be all too surprised if some dealers threw that in for some customers, especially with year end models.

Anyone else find it surprising that the black is only available for fleets? I would imagine that a lot of people would choose black for their Trax. Why do you think that is?

Not sure why, that is indeed weird.

But it's possible they did demographic research and discovered the majority of us just don't care for black, allocating black to fleets.

carpeted mats are always standard, its the rubber ones they'll toss in sometimes

I find that unlikely, only because black is always popular. I'd be very surprised if it wouldn't be a popular choice with Trax customers. Every car sells well in black (and silver and white).
