The multi-flex tailgate of the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 is one of our favorite features on every current pickup. It is now also available for Chevrolet Silverado HD heavy-duty models.
The Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD will offer the tailgate for the 2022 model year.
The Multi-Flex tailgate comprises several hinged panels so that it can be operated in five configurations:
- A traditional tailgate
- An extended charging stop to keep longer items in place
- Partly folded away to allow easier access to the cargo box
- A standing work station
- A step that, in combination with an auxiliary handle, enables easy access to the bed
Buttons on the truck’s key fob and on the tailgate itself operate the tailgate. The decision in favor of the Multi-Flex tailgate means that buyers have to do without the electrically operated tailgate of the LT, LTZ and High Country equipment.
The 2022 Silverado HD models will be available this summer. A price for the Muli-Flex option has not been disclosed, but it is $ 595 on the Silverado 1500.
