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.

Spring Vehicle Maintenance Tips

spring vehicle maintenance

Punxsutawney didn’t see his shadow on Groundhog Day, which means spring is coming early. Transition your Chevrolet or Cadillac from the cold winter weather with these easy spring vehicle maintenance tasks.

Oil and fluids

Doing an oil change at least twice a year is necessary in optimizing your car’s future performance. The end of winter is a perfect time for the first one, as the cold temperatures take its toll on your engine. Check your other fluids — including the coolant and brake fluid — to see if they are at the right level.

Wipers

Whether you use winter wiper blades or your current pair is worn, replace them and refill your washer fluid. Spring is the rainiest season of the year, and fresh blades will improve your visibility.

Tires

Inspect your tires for damage, leaks, cracks, and low tread. Spring rain creates slippery roads, so you need the best traction from your tires. If you use winter tires, switch them out for your all-season tires. The soft rubber on your car’s winter tires doesn’t play well with warmer weather.

Lights

Check your car’s lights, including the headlights, taillights, turn signals, and fog lights. Replace any burnt-out bulbs.

If you do not have the time or need assistance with your vehicle, schedule a service appointment at Quirk Chevrolet Cadillac of Bangor.
