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.

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.

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.
