Much like its gas-powered counterpart, you can expect the all-electric Blazer to boast plenty of family-friendly amenities.

Forget stopping at the gas pump — you’ll be able to charge your vehicle right from the comfort of your home with the Chevrolet at-home charger.

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.

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.
