Is a New Chevrolet Cheyenne Truck on the Way? The Signs Look Promising

A recent General Motors trademark filing could signal a comeback for the old-school Chevrolet Cheyenne nameplate as a potential new truck model. 

Starting in the 1970s, Cheyenne was a high-end trim level in Chevy’s C/K truck lineup. The name went away in the 1999 model year when Silverado took over as the brand’s flagship pickup.

So far, GM isn’t saying much about its plans to bring back the Cheyenne nameplate. On its registration application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, it says only that the new trademark “is intended to cover the categories of motor land vehicles, namely trucks.”

However, after the Cheyenne went out of production, Chevrolet brought back the name twice for concept trucks, providing clues for what a new Cheyenne might look like.

The first one, the 2003 Chevrolet Cheyenne Concept, was a compact truck with side-access bed doors and a sporty look. The second was the 2013 Silverado Cheyenne Concept, a high-performance street truck that featured a low-slung build and a 420-horsepower engine.

If a new Chevrolet Cheyenne does emerge, the odds are good that it will take some cues from one of these two concepts. A compact Cheyenne would allow GM to take part in the hot new market for smaller trucks. A high-performance Cheyenne could also provide the automaker with a unique edge on the competition.

We love trucks here at Quirk Chevrolet Cadillac of Bangor, and a new Chevy Cheyenne would be a great addition to the lineup. To learn more about the trucks we offer right now, visit us here at our dealership in Bangor, Maine.

2021 Cadillac Escalade Hailed Among Best Looking SUVs

2021 Cadillac Escalade | Bangor, ME

Want to make a big impression? The 2021 Cadillac Escalade was hailed as one of the 20 Best Looking SUVs of 2021 by U.S. News & World Report, in part because of its imposing stature and sci-fi-worthy interior technologies.

The 2021 model is the longest Escalade yet. It never lacked road presence in the past, and it’s got even more of it now. With 22-inch wheels, a massive gloss-black grille, sharp full-LED headlamps and tasteful chrome highlights, the Escalade is simply unmissable.

But it was the interior that had the staff at U.S. News truly smitten. “Inside, the Escalade flaunts Cadillac’s huge strides in technology and refinement,” writes Zach Doell for the publication. He continues on to say that “the cabin is trimmed with impeccable materials.”

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade features the industry’s first 38-inch curved OLED display as well as 16-way power-adjustable driver and front passenger, semi-aniline leather seats with heating, ventilation, and massaging capabilities.

It also offers nine different interior trims, four seat-insert designs, and hand-finished leather and natural wood as far as the eye can see. In other words, if you’re looking for the most handsome, comfortable ride for you and up to seven other passengers — not to mention 121 cubic feet of cargo volume — the Cadillac Escalade is the way to go.

Up to Six Cadillac EVs Will Join the Lineup by 2025

Cadillac EV Lineup | Bangor, ME

Electric vehicles are the way of the future, and Cadillac is leading the charge. According to The News Wheel, Cadillac is on track to release up to six all-electric vehicles by 2025.

The first to appear will be the Cadillac Lyriq, which is set to launch in just a year. That’s right, this time next year, you could be driving your own Lyriq, an all-electric SUV. The Lyriq is one of the hallmark vehicles of General Motors’ larger promise to introduce 30 EVs internationally by 2025.

In addition to the Lyriq, Cadillac is laying the groundwork for three other electric SUVs. The first two to follow will be the Optiq and the Symboliq. While not confirmed, the rumor mill speculates that we can also expect an all-electric variant of the wildly popular Escalade luxury SUV.

But it’s not just crossovers and SUVs getting the electric treatment. The Cadillac Celestiq will serve as the luxury automaker’s flagship electric sedan. This model should hit our lot in Bangor, Maine, by 2025.

The sixth and final EV could be a “low-roof EV” that crosses a four-door coupe and a sedan. A name has still not been released.

For up-to-date information about Cadillac’s electric ambitions and upcoming models, stay tuned to the Quirk Cadillac of Bangor blog.
