3 Cool Features on the 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ

2023 Cadillac LYRIQ | Bangor, ME

The LYRIQ is a groundbreaking addition to the Cadillac lineup. This all-electric SUV boasts robust rear-wheel-drive performance and innovative designs throughout that herald a new era for the automaker. Here are some of the Cadillac LYRIQ features that we think are the coolest.

A massive LED display.

While other luxury vehicles on the market offer a small informational display screen for the driver, the LYRIQ has one that’s 33 inches in diameter and nearly takes up the entire length of the dashboard. This LED display is curved so every inch is angled toward the driver’s seat, providing a clear view of the SUV’s settings and status. It’s so advanced that it can emit over one billion colors.

Hand-free Super Cruise™.

An enviable feature that’s becoming increasingly available across the Cadillac lineup, the Super Cruise™ semi-autonomous driving system is available on the 2023 LYRIQ. When activated on compatible roads, this system will take control of the wheel and safely navigate the LYRIQ in traffic.

A dancing light show.

The 2023 LYRIQ has over 700 LED lights pinned throughout its exterior body in components like the headlights and taillights. When you approach your LYRIQ and unlock it, those lights will glow in a specific, choreographed sequence that will look like the Cadillac crest is flashing across the SUV.

These are just a few of the many innovations on the brand-new LYRIQ. To reserve your 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ, contact us at Quirk Cadillac in Bangor, Maine.

Tips & Tricks

How to Save Money on a Road Trip

2022 Chevrolet Equinox | Bangor, ME

Road trips are incredible adventures, and they are typically much cheaper than the cost of airfare. Here are a few more ways to continue to save money on your road trip.

Chip In

If you are traveling with friends, but it’s your Chevrolet Equinox that’s getting everyone back and forth, it’s okay to ask for some financial assistance. Whether they chip in for gas, accommodations, or pick up the check at mealtime, every dollar will help you protect your budget.

Crunch The Numbers

Speaking of budgets, it is essential to your bottom line to prepare and stick to (as closely as possible) a budget. Create this budget before you hit the road. You might also want to plan for unexpected costs with a contingency budget.

Stay Relatively Close To Home

The farther you travel, the more you’ll spend. To help you save money, consider a road trip that is closer to home than a cross-country trek that will drain your finances.

Plan For Downtime

In between road trip stops and your destination, you and your family will spend lots of time comfortably seated in the spacious cabin of your Chevrolet Tahoe. Elevate the enjoyment of the ride with entertaining options like audiobooks from your local library, free apps, and specially curated playlists to help pass the time. If you’re behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you know there is no limit to your adventures, and thanks to the spacious truck bed, you can bring along your own adventure gear like bikes instead of spending money on rentals.

Get road trip ready behind the wheel of a new Chevy Equinox, Tahoe, or Silverado 1500 at Quirk Chevrolet in Bangor, Maine.

2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD Adds Multi-Flex Tailgate

Silverado HD Multi-Flex Tailgate | Bangor, ME

Our favorite hardworking heavy-duty truck is more functional and versatile now, thanks to this exciting addition. The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD is following the lead of its light-duty counterpart and adding the innovative Multi-Flex Tailgate to its models. The Multi-Flex Tailgate features six unique functions that make it easier to use and access the Chevy Silverado HD truck bed so that loading and unloading becomes a simple task.

You can control the Multi-Flex Tailgate and switch between the six distinct settings through a button on your driver’s instrument panel, two buttons located on the tailgate, or on your key fob. The different functions of the tailgate include configurations on the primary and inner gate. As with any traditional tailgate, you can fold down the primate gate, but now you also have the ability to fold down the inner gate to access a full-width step that supports up to 375 pounds. An easy access mode on the inner gate helps you load and unload the bed, while a primary gate load stop and inner gate load stop helps secure your cargo, even those that are longer or taller. You can also transform the inner gate into a standing work surface so you can complete paperwork at the end of your job or enjoy a quick lunch.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate is available on all 2022 Silverado HD trims. You can find the latest Silverado HD models at Quirk Chevrolet of Bangor.

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.
