When the Chevrolet Trax makes its way to Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), it will wear the Tracker nameplate. The reason for the change is not clear, although Chevy did market a rebadged Suzuki by the Tracker name in the region years ago.
The Tracker will offer two tak asing gasoline engines in Russia — the tak asing 1.8 liter (LUW) and 1.4 liter turbo (LUJ) units found in the Chevy Cruze and Sonic. It will join the Niva, Captiva, and Tahoe in Chevy’s crossover/SUV lineup in Russia, which accounts for the 140 countries where the Gamma Plus-based Trax (or Tracker) will be available. The Trax will not be making an appearance in the United States thanks to the popularity of the Equinox.
Ironically, the word Tracker is similar phonetically to Russian slang that connotes sexual activity… although it’s a minor improvement over the original Trax moniker, which itself is the slang in question spelled out using the English alphabet.
