Cadillac Escalade Wins Technology Award

2022 Cadillac Escalade | Bangor, ME

Cadillac has never been one to skimp on high-tech features in its vehicles, and the proof is in the pudding. The all-new 2021 Cadillac Escalade has earned a Wards 10 Best UX award for its innovative, advanced technology systems. Several features came together to cinch this award for the Escalade, but the cutting-edge display network was of particular note. The Escalade applies OLED technology to three different screens — an infotainment screen, a gauge cluster, and an information cluster — that gives them a combined 38 inches of crisp, ultra-high-definition displays.

In addition to this, the Escalade’s integrated navigation software features unusually accurate voice recognition technology, as well as an augmented reality overlay on the digital instrument panel that projects directions onto a live video feed of the road ahead.

The Escalade also applied its technological prowess to its safety and driver assistance features. An available tow package provides nine cameras for the best possible views of your trailer, while a Surround Vision parking assist system uses four cameras to create a bird’s-eye view of the Escalade and its surroundings.

The Escalade’s futuristic tech even allows you to drive hands-free on select roads with its Super Cruise driver-assist system. While in use, the system can even change lanes for you.

With features like these, is it any wonder the Escalade is winning awards? You can get behind the wheel of your very own Escalade, available from Quirk Cadillac of Bangor.

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.
