2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Elevates the American Supercar

The Chevrolet Corvette has captivated car enthusiasts and even regular drivers since it roared onto the track decades ago. And, the 2023 Corvette model is the epitome of its legacy with modern upgrades, a sleek style, and of course, a powerhouse engine. The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 redefines the American Supercar with an engine rated at the highest horsepower in a production car.

2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

“Corvette has always brought a discerning customer to the Chevy family,” said Steve Hill, vice president of Chevrolet. “This new Z06 was designed and engineered to set a higher bar with increased levels of craftsmanship, personalization and performance so customers can truly have their own bespoke performance car.”

Under the hood, earning that off-the-charts horsepower rating and 460 lb-ft of torque is the all-new 5.5-liter LT6 V8 paired to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 2023 Corvette Z06 features standard 20-inch “spider” wheels in the front while 21-inch wheels complete the foundation of the supercar. A reconfigurable rear spoiler is standard and offers a distinct look to the exterior while enhancing stability at high speeds. The signature front and rear fascias offer a fresh new look for the 2023 model, and it optimizes the functionality of the American supercar.

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.

Chevy Equinox Named One of the Safest Cars for Teen Drivers

2021 Chevrolet Equinox | Bangor, ME

If you’re looking for a safe, reliable, affordable vehicle for your teen driver, the Chevrolet Equinox is a top pick. As proof, the SUV just earned a coveted spot on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s 2020 Safe Vehicles for Teens list.

Making it on the 2020 Safe Vehicles for Teens list is no small feat. The small SUV needed an acceptable or good rating in the IIHS driver-side small overlap front test. The Equinox also received good ratings in the roof strength, moderate overlap front, side, and head restraint tests.

Another factor the IIHS considered during its evaluation is whether or not the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration scored the vehicle at least four stars for side and front collision tests, as well as a minimum of four stars overall. Finally, Consumer Reports also had to give the Equinox at least three out of five stars for its emergency handling capability.

The 2020 Equinox earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick award thanks to its crashworthiness and numerous safety systems, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, and Following Distance Indicator. The SUV also comes with Teen Driver mode, which allows you to customize settings and limit certain features when your child is behind the wheel. The system also provides an in-vehicle report card that summarizes their driving behavior so you can help them improve and stay safe.

To learn more about the Chevrolet Equinox — and why it might be the ideal vehicle for your teen driver — take a look at our new and used inventory online at Quirk Chevrolet of Bangor.
