General Motors CEO Mary Barra attracted another gaggle of photographers on Tuesday evening when Chevrolet formally introduced the small Trax crossover. Barra said that by sometime next year, after five “significant all-new products,” 95 percent of the models in Chevy’s lineup will be less than 4 years old. She called it “the strongest product lineup in Chevrolet’s history” and added that 75 percent of Chevy’s dealerships have started or completed facility overhauls. -- Mike Colias
