The General Motors Multistow tailgate, a classic pickup truck feature, is making a comeback. The tailgate, which was first introduced in the late 1940s, is being reintroduced by GM as an optional feature on select models of its full-size pickups.

The Multistow tailgate is distinguished by its two-part design. The tailgate opens into two separate pieces, allowing for a greater level of flexibility and convenience when hauling cargo. The tailgate can be opened like a conventional tailgate, folded down, or opened in a step-style configuration for easier access to the truck bed.

In addition to providing an improved loading and unloading experience, the Multistow tailgate offers a range of other benefits. With the step-style configuration, the tailgate can be used as a work bench or platform, giving the user extra space to work on projects in the truck bed. The tailgate can also be opened and closed with one hand, making it easier to use in tight spaces.

The Multistow tailgate is made of a durable steel alloy, with a powder-coated finish for increased corrosion resistance. It is designed to withstand the elements, so it can be used in a range of conditions.

The Multistow tailgate is available on select models of the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado pickups. It is offered as an optional feature, with a starting price of $495.

For owners of classic GM pickups, the Multistow tailgate is a welcome addition. It combines the classic styling of the original tailgate with modern convenience and versatility, making it an ideal choice for those who want to make the most of their pickup trucks.
