Model Preview, Trailblazer

2021 Chevy Trailblazer Preview

2021 Chevy Trailblazer | Portland, ME

The upcoming 2021 Trailblazer is an all-new addition to Chevy’s diverse lineup. It will slot between the Trax and the Equinox to provide drivers with a larger choice in the popular small SUV segment.

The 2021 Trailblazer puts safety at the forefront. Available safety features include Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Lane Keep Assist. According to Steve Majoros, Chevy’s director of passenger car and crossover marketing, “These features deliver added confidence and peace of mind behind the wheel, helping drivers monitor the vehicle’s surroundings and the driving environment with an available combination of camera, short-range radars, and ultrasonic sensors.”

The Trailblazer takes a step away from Chevy’s typical crossover design. It features a standard two-tone roof on the Trailblazer RS model, as well as a touch-screen display with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

“The Trailblazer’s great design enables more personalization,” said Majoros. “Trailblazer is a continuation of the design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments.”

The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer will hit U.S. dealerships in early 2020. Until then, check back with us at Quirk Chevrolet of Portland for updates on the upcoming Trailblazer and other new Chevy models.

Chevrolet, Silverado Trucks

Silverado 3.0-liter Duramax Diesel Confirmed

Silverado 2020 | Portland, ME

The next-gen 2019 Silverado shook the industry with its spectacular six-powertrain lineup, and Chevy is raising the bar even further with the new 2020 model. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado will offer a new 3.0-liter inline-six Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine, the first of its kind to ever appear in a Chevrolet full-size light-duty truck.

The new 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine will offer tons of advanced power and capability, delivering everything you need on and off the worksite. The engine pumps out 277 horsepower, 460 lb-ft of torque, and comes paired with a durable, smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission. Intrigued? The engine will be available on the LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country trim levels.

Chevy engineers couldn’t be prouder of the advanced engine. As Nicola Menarini, the director for Diesel Truck Engine Program Execution, stated, “From the moment the engine is started, to its idle, acceleration and highway cruising, the 3.0-liter Duramax performance will change perceptions of what a diesel engine can offer in refinement.” The 3.0-liter Duramax engine is built strong but light, balancing performance and efficient design. It employs an array of advanced technologies, including exhaust braking, which uses the engine’s compression to help slow the vehicle when towing and hauling. To stay cool and ensure that the engine is always ready to go, the engine uses GM-exclusive Active Thermal Management technology

Initially, the engine was slated to be released for the 2019 model year, but it took a bit longer than anticipated. Alongside this smart new engine, the 2020 Silverado will offer advanced features like Adaptive Cruise Control.

Can’t wait for this new Chevy Silverado engine? Come see the current engine lineup at Quirk Chevrolet of Portland.

Silverado 1500

The 2019 Silverado 1500 Diesel Engine Has Best-In-Class Power

2019 Silverado 1500 | Portland, ME

For the first time in almost ten years, a diesel engine will be available on the 2019 Silverado 1500. This noteworthy addition has caused a bigger stir by bringing the Silverado 1500 to the top spot when it comes to best-in-class power, beating out Ford and Ram.

The engine making these waves with its reveal is the new 3.0-liter Duramax inline-6 turbodiesel that operates on a 10-speed automatic transmission with rear- or available all-wheel drive. This configuration pumps out 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque and makes use of turbo technology for rapid on-demand power. The closest competing vehicle, the Ford F-150, falls short by 27 horsepower and 20 lb-ft of torque.

Exact towing specifications as well as fuel economy ratings have not been released, but going off of the numbers revealed so far, it is safe to say that more buzz is in store for the Duramax turbodiesel engine configuration before it goes on sale this summer.

Stop by Quirk Chevrolet of Portland to take the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for a test drive.
