When Chevrolet Tracker was first introduced in late 1988 as Geo Tracker, it has an appearance of compact Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) but the Tracker was still certified as a light truck due to its off-road capacities. When the last North American Tracker rolled off the assembly line on January 27, 2004, it had been manufactured through two generations.
