Chevrolet Philippines is fortifying its lineup of vehicles with the all-new Tracker subcompact SUV. The highly capable Tracker boasts of sporty and sleek styling, and is built on GM’s Global Emerging Markets platform. Tracker is a global Chevrolet model that’s already achieving high sales figures in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, and China.
The Tracker comes in at a sweet spot for subcompact SUVs: 4.27m length x 1,791m width, with a 2.57m wheelbase. From the car company that has given us the coolly aggressive looks of the Corvette and the Camaro, the Tracker shares some of their sporty demeanor. The Tracker has slim headlights and LED day-time running lights, a semi-clamshell hood with U-shaped power dome, and Z-shaped lines on the flanks. The double L-shaped LED daytime running lights run on light-guide LEDs. To provide an expansive view and stream light into the cabin, the Tracker has an available panoramic sunroof.
The interior features a thoroughly modern cabin. The cockpit is centered around an 8-inch Chevrolet MyLink infotainment System. The system features Apple CarPlay and multiple USB input ports. Sport seats feature red stitching to add a sporty touch, and the Tracker LS features a two-tone jet black and captain blue interior. To provide more space for cargo, the rear seats can split-fold.
For those who want a sportier design, there’s the Tracker Redline Edition. The Redline has a red-accented upper grille and red trim on the side mirrors. The 17-inch alloy wheels are painted black, with red accents. The Redline has the panoramic sunroof as standard.
Powering the Tracker is a segment-unique engine, a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder gasoline unit. Turbocharging enables output of 116hp at 5,800rpm and 175Nm at 4,200rpm. Drive goes through a six-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels.
The powertrain includes an Engine Stop/Start System with Auto Disable Switch feature that shuts the engine down when the car is idling or stationary. Power steering is an electric system that allows quick response and energy-efficient operation.
The Tracker is equipped with active safety features including ABS brakes, electronic stability control, tire pressure monitoring system, rollover mitigation, cornering brake control, panic brake assist, hill start assist, and torque vectoring brakes. Four airbags help protect the driver and passengers. Rear park assist and reverse camera with 130-degree wide view helps with maneuvering. Anti-theft alarm and engine immobilizer are available.
The Tracker comes with the Chevrolet Complete Care package, which includes 5-year/100,000km warranty, automatic enrollment to the 24/7 Chevrolet Roadside Assistance for three years, and immediate access to the 24/7 Chevy Hotline for convenient vehicle service and ownership needs.
Two variants are available: the base Tracker LS priced at P1,142,888 and the sportier Tracker LT Redline Edition at P1,242,888. Chevrolet is offering an introductory discount of P30,000.00, regardless of mode of purchase, on the Tracker LS and LT Redline until Sept. 30, 2021.
The Chevrolet Tracker is available in five colors: Agate Red Metallic, Satin Steel Gray Metallic, Black Meet Kettle Metallic, Summit White, and Pow Zinga Metallic, a color exclusive to the LS variant.
