The Chevrolet Tracker is a mini SUV that was produced from 1989 to 2004. This model was first produced by Suzuki and the car was called Suzuki Escudo (Vitara), but later the car was purchased by Chevrolet (a division of General Motors) in Canada and was named Geo Tracker (Chevrolet Tracker, it became known since 1996). Until 1997, the same model also came out under the brands Asuna and Pontiac, called Sunrunner. Asüna / Pontiac Sunrunner sales were sold only in Canada.
In 1999, the second generation of Chevrolet Tracker SUVs appeared. In fact, it was another relative of the Suzuki off-road vehicles, namely the Suzuki Grand Vitara model, which was borrowed by General Motors and was sold under the name Chevrolet Grand Vitara in Latin American countries, while the second-generation Tracker in Mexico retained its name Chevrolet Tracker. The lineup Tracker ceased to exist in the United States in 2004. The predominant difference between the Chevrolet Tracker and its class of off-road vehicles was a particularly durable and lightweight chassis.
Also, the Tracker was a very comfortable and convenient SUV, thanks to a very reliable all-wheel drive system, specially designed for off-road, with a light engine located in front and a transmission connected to a special transfer case. The car had a reinforced suspension and steering box with a very durable circulating ball. The front differential was securely fastened in front of the engine with a horseshoe-shaped transmission mechanism connecting the helical spring of the front hubs to the differential case. The rear suspension, as befits a light SUV, was equipped with springs.
As a result, it is a bit harsh, but very durable and reliable suspension. However, the second generation Chevrolet Tracker already had a more simplified suspension with a toothed roller, which was much less reliable, and its repair was quite expensive. As a result, the SUV has become less popular among the rural population and off-road enthusiasts. As for the engines, the first generation Chevrolet Tracker was offered a 4-cylinder petrol power unit with a volume of 1.6 liters and a power of 95 hp. And for the second generation of Tracker SUVs, there were already two petrol engines in the list of engines.
It included the former 4-cylinder, 95-horsepower 1.6-liter gasoline engine and a 2-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine with 130 hp. External differences of the second-generation Chevrolet Tracker are in giving the car a more streamlined shape, which did not significantly change The concept of discreet exterior design SUV. And in the first and second generation car was offered in 2-door and 4-door trim levels.
