Trailblazer Among Ward’s Top 10 Engines

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer | Bangor, ME

If you’re considering a new compact SUV, the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer should be on your list. This model’s recent head-nod from Ward’s Auto is just one more reason to bring it home. The 2021 Trailblazer’s 1.3-liter turbocharged engine secured a deserving place on Ward’s 10 Best Engines for 2021 list.

The publication’s judges commented on the engine’s quietness and power despite it having just three cylinders, referring to it as “the little engine that could.” Thanks to a 12-volt engine stop-start system, this engine is extremely efficient when paired with front-wheel drive. And it outputs 116 horsepower per liter of gas, giving it an edge on its sportier sibling, the Corvette Stingray. (Per Ward’s Bob Gritzinger, the Stingray’s V8 mill gets just 37 horsepower per liter, in case you were wondering.) Ward’s Auto also praised it for its low NVH level, which translates to a quiet ride quality for passengers.

Turbo engine aside, however, the 2021 Trailblazer has plenty of other strengths that make it a desirable addition to your home. The five-seater compact SUV has available all-wheel drive, for extra peace of mind when driving on slick or mushy roads with your family in tow. You can also take advantage of 54.4 cubic feet of cargo volume with the backseat collapsed, when you need more room for things than people. When you go with a model built after July 2020, you get the assurance of knowing that your Trailblazer boasts a coveted Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Experience Chevy’s award-winning 1.3-liter turbocharged engine when you test-drive a 2021 Trailblazer equipped with one here at Quirk Chevrolet of Bangor.

GM to Introduce 30 New EVs by 2025

General Motors already offers some fantastic electric vehicles in the U.S., including the Chevrolet Bolt EV. Nevertheless, the automaker recently announced that it will be offering 30 new EVs by the end of 2025.

GM will sell at least two-thirds of these new EVs in North America. Chevrolet and the other GM brands will each be adding new models to their lineups. So far, 10 of the 30 models are on the development schedule, one of which is an electric Chevy pickup.

The upcoming models will utilize the automaker’s new Ultium technology. This innovation should reduce battery costs by about 60 percent and help lower the starting prices of the EVs, making them more attainable options for shoppers on a budget.

The second generation of the Ultium battery packs have also doubled energy density and could give upcoming models an impressive driving range of up to 450 miles on a single charge.* This means that you may be able to take small road trips and drive to and from work without having to worry about finding a charging station.

We at Quirk Chevrolet of Bangor look forward to adding new EVs to our dealership. Whether you’re looking for a battery-powered or gas-powered vehicle, be sure to check out our current inventory.

*GM estimated. EPA estimates not available. Vehicle range may vary based on several factors, including temperatures, terrain, battery age, and vehicle use and maintenance.
