The Trax is built on the same platform as the Encore and uses the same 1.4-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine that will deliver an estimated 138 horsepower and 148 pounds-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and electric power steering will be standard. All-wheel-drive will be available on all models. GM says it will get an estimated 26 mpg in city driving and 34 on the highway. The small crossover will go on sale in early 2015.

Look for the addition of a 2.8-liter, four-cylinder turbodiesel in 2015. A ZR2 off-road variant, which would serve as an F-150 SVT Raptor fighter, could emerge as early as the ’16 model year.

Production of the next generation of Chevy’s top-selling car should begin by the end of 2015 as a ’16 model. It will be the first car built on a new, lighter global compact platform, code-named D2XX, which also will underpin the Buick Verano, Opel Astra, Chevy Equinox and other vehicles. The U.S. Cruze’s powertrain lineup should include engine choices that will be available on the Chinese version, which is due out in late 2014: a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder base engine, along with a 1.4-liter turbo. The Chinese version, unveiled by GM in April, gives a good preview of the Cruze’s general shape: an evolutionary design change, with a more-rounded front end with a deeper grille, steeply raked windshield and fastback roofline. GM’s decision to sell the Trax small crossover in the United States makes it unlikely that Chevy will offer a hatchback version of the Cruze. A coupe is a longer-term possibility.
