Awards, Cadillac, Escalade

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.

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.
