Best Silverado Accessories for Truck Owners in Portland, ME

Your Silverado 1500 gives you the confidence you need on the road. Why not treat it to some official Chevrolet accessories? Here is our list of recommended upgrades every truck owner should have.

Fitted all-weather floor liners

Unlike regular mats, floor liners contour to your Silverado truck’s floor for seamless fitting. They provide protection year-round from dirt and salt tracks here in Maine and extra grip for when entering your truck cab wearing messy boots.

Wear from everyday use is normal in a Silverado, but protecting your floors can retain your truck’s value when you want to trade for a new truck at Quirk Chevrolet of Portland.

Quality truck bed cover

Bed covers are designed to shield your cargo and bed from rough weather and theft. A hard top is great for durability in snow and extra security. Soft tops provide more flexibility when filling the bed over its top and are easily rolled up when not in use.

Console-mounted safe

Stash personal items like sunglasses or loose change in your Silverado cab with a safe located inside of the center console. The lock box adds protection in the case of a break-in or lending the truck to someone you don’t trust.

Hitch cap

Give your tailgate and trailer hitch longer lifespans by protecting them from debris when driving your Silverado in Portland. Simply close the cap when the ball hitch is not in use. You’ll also appreciate the polished look it provides.   Order these must-have Silverado accessories from our parts department at Quirk Chevrolet in Portland, Maine.

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.
