History of the Chevrolet Tracker
Chevrolet Tracker (1998–2016)
Late in 1988, for the 1989 model year, Geo debuted the Tracker, a compact SUV. CAMI, a partnership between Suzuki and General Motors of Canada, produced it. Production was scheduled to begin in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada, where it was to share a factory with the domestic Suzuki Sidekick (Escudo). Due to production delays at the CAMI factory in Canada, most 1989 and 1990 Trackers were manufactured in Japan and imported to the United States. In late 1989, Ingersoll began mass-producing Geo Trackers, and by the following year, they had completed roughly 6,100 of them. After 1998, Ontario stopped producing the first-generation Tracker (and Sidekick) models to find space for the second-generation Tracker/Vitara. However, some countries kept producing the first-generation Sidekick until 2004. Canada - In 1989, Canada's Chevrolet dealerships offered the Tracker for sale. It was discontinued in 1991.
The Grand Vitara replaced the Sidekick. However, in 1999 it was abandoned, and they produced a new generation of Tracker. This Suzuki Tracker was only available in North America and was rebadged as the smaller Suzuki Vitara for sale there. The second-generation Tracker was discontinued worldwide but continued to be manufactured and sold in Mexico under the Chevrolet brand name. While the United States and Canada ceased production of the Tracker series in 2004, all models, such as the LJ80/Jimny, are still manufactured at other Suzuki facilities. In Kosai, Japan, a Suzuki plant assembled several Trackers and Sidekicks.
Chevrolet Trax (Russia and South America)
The Trax was sold as the Chevrolet Tracker in Russia and South America, the same name given to a Chevrolet/Geo variant of the Suzuki Sidekick in North and Latin America from 1989 to 1991 and again from 1999 to 2008.
Chevrolet Tracker (2019–Present)
Since 2019, General Motors has been producing the Chevrolet Tracker, a subcompact crossover SUV. The Tracker, aimed at the Chinese market, made its debut in 2019 with the Trailblazer. The Tracker sold in China is essentially the exact vehicle as the Trax in the United States. In 2020, the development of the Tracker began in Brazil at the So Caetano do Sul factory. Then, GM declared that the Tracker would replace the first-generation Trax in Mexico. The Chinese-made Tracker first appeared on Philippine shelves in July 2021. The Chinese market Tracker was developed on the Global Emerging Markets (GEM) platform, specifically for emerging economies such as China and Latin America's automobile industries. Vehicles built on the GEM platform, like the Tracker that debuted in China in 2019, are probably not destined for sale in the United States and Canada. General Motors de Argentina started manufacturing the Tracker in April 2022 at the General Alvear plant in Santa Fe Province.
In the Philippines, Chevrolet retails the 2022 Chevrolet Tracker with a starting MSRP of ₱1,142,888 for the base LS AT trim and ₱1,242,888 for the top-spec LT Redline trim.
Features of the Chevrolet Tracker
Chevrolet's newest design language is included on the Tracker, giving it a hip and contemporary appearance.
