Chevrolet Multi-Flex Tailgate: Pickup tailgate can do the trick

Chevrolet is introducing a new, multi-purpose entry to its Silverado pickup model and its heavy-duty version. This Multi-Flex Tailgate has six possible configurations.

In Europe, a multipurpose tailgate on a pickup truck won’t pull a dog from behind the stove. It is completely different on the American market, because pickups are big there and everyday life is impossible without them. Accordingly, their use for business, but also for entertainment, looks completely different. It is clear that they are excited about each new technical feature as much as children enjoy the presents under the Christmas tree.

And new Chevy Silverado and its updated heavy-duty version (2022 model), GM presents the Multi-Flex Tailgate, which can be loaded up to 170 kg. The more developed tailgate can be used in six different configurations. On the one hand, of course, in a very classic way, by being folded down in one piece. But a new, collapsible feature on the top of the tail lift opens up even more possibilities.

It is used in many ways

For example, the extra flap can be used as a step or seat when the Multi-Flex Tailgate is open. Or you can fold it down, which allows you to get closer to the loading area to load or unload large items more easily. If the tailgate is closed, only a small element can be opened so that the transported goods are not balanced over the entire length of the tail lift. Anyone who needs an office work space between them can also fold the flap so it can be used as a standing desk. And if large loads need to be transported, something that can be folded from the inside serves as a barrier so that nothing can slide.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate can be operated in three ways: with the car key via the radio remote control, with two buttons on the tailgate or with a switch on the dashboard.

For the regular and heavy-duty Silverado

For the sake of Silverado On the 2500HD and 3500HD, a 2022 model year that will hit dealerships next summer, Chevrolet offers the Multi-Flex Tailgate on LT, LTZ and High Country trim levels. As standard on the Silverado 1500, a smart tail lift has been available on all models since the beginning of the year.
