Chevy Silverado Will Get A Multi-Function Tailgate For 2022
Along with a refreshed look, the Silverado will get GMC's famous Multi-Function tailgate.
1. Silverado 1500 and HD models will be equipped with the "MultiFlex" 6-function tailgate.
2. The MultiFlex tailgate will arrive for the 2022 model year, along with a refreshed design.
To be frank, this isn't a bold move, it is long awaited. Chevrolet is finally adding the famous multi function tailgate that is currently seen on its brother, the GMC Sierra, to the Silverado. Presently, this quirky feature is standard on the SLT, AT4, and Denali trim levels, so it would make the most sense for it to be standard on the corresponding Silverado trim levels which are RST, LTZ, and High Country. With that said, however, it is unlikely that it will be standard on the Trail Boss versions, which fall between the RST and LTZ trim levels, as they are off-road oriented.
What Is The MultiFlex Tailgate?
If you aren't familiar with the MultiFlex/MultiPro tailgate don't worry, I will explain it right now. Essentially, it's designed to make loading and accessing the truck bed as easy as possible. It achieves this with the following feature: A secondary cutout in the middle of the tailgate allows more standing space behind the truck, it also folds into a step to ease climbing into the bed and can be folded up to stop lengthier loads from sliding out the back of the tailgate. In addition, a weatherproof Kicker audio system is integrated into the tailgate, solely there to make tailgate parties more fun.
