Get Ready for the 2023 Colorado Truck’s Release in Portland

Say “hello” to the revamped 2023 Chevrolet Colorado truck. It’s a new generation for this popular midsize truck, and the latest version offers off-road enhancements, a refreshed design, and the latest technology. Are you a driver in Portland who’s looking forward to the 2023 Colorado release? Here’s a preview.

The 2023 Chevy Colorado has five trims to choose from, all with confident and muscular features that enhance their capabilities. The all-new ZR2 features an aggressive build with 3-inch lifted suspension, a wider chassis, and 33-inch OD MT tires. The first-ever Colorado Trail Boss stands tall with factory-lifted suspension and has a transfer case shield, preparing it for rough off-roading in Maine.

Five available drive modes support the enhanced off-road or towing tuning. Of these, terrain mode is best for rock crawling near the Atlantic coast, while Baja easily crosses Maine’s sandy beaches.

A trendy and technology-filled cab offsets the 2023 Colorado’s rugged exterior appearance. The four available interior designs offer enhancements like stitched knee pads on the doors, sporty round outboard vents, and distinctive contrast stitching.

In the front seat, find a customizable 11.3-inch touch-screen diagonal infotainment system that makes your driving experience entertaining and intuitive. The system hosts Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and ten available best-in-class camera views.

From versatile performance to a bold design, the 2023 Chevy Colorado enables freedom in your daily drives and weekend adventurous. It will be available in early 2023, so contact us at Quirk Chevrolet of Portland for the pre-order of your new Colorado.

2023 Corvette Z06 Raises $3.6M for Operation Homefront

The first retail 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition sold for a record $3.6 million at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction — and 100 percent of the sale will go directly to Operation Homefront. Chevrolet has proudly supported this national nonprofit since 2017.

Operation Homefront offers military families opportunities to thrive through programs for Critical Financial Assistance, transitional and permanent housing, and caregiver support services. They even provide recurring family support for everything from baby showers and holiday programs to backpacks filled with school supplies.

Besides its charitable achievements, the new Corvette Z06 gives much to talk about. For starters, it’s powered by the all-new 5.5-liter LT6 — the highest horsepower, naturally-aspirated V8 ever put into a production car. The hand-built engine achieves an incredible 670 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, redlining at 8,600 rpm.

Engineers pushed the boundaries on capability with the Corvette Z06. Success is showcased in the supercar’s wider stance, which accommodates 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels and increases airflow through side air vents; its unique front and rear fascias, which optimize cooling; and much more.
