Fans of the heavy-duty Chevy trucks will finally have the option of adding the Multi-Flex Tailgate to the Silverado 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks. The 2022 Chevy Silverado HD changes announced include the new tailgate option and a new color: Greenstone Metalic.
Due to the semiconductor and labor shortages and labor shortages GM has not yet announced the release date for the 2022 models.
These tailgates will be the same as the ones we’ve seen on the Chevy Silverado 1500 and the Sierra 1500 trucks. The Multi-Flex Tailgate offers key fob activation and six different configurations for increased tailgate and bed functionality. My personal favorite is the standing desk option, but I could also see myself getting a lot of use out of the step and bed extender. No wonder it’s been a popular feature with Silverado customers with steady increases since production began.
The new tailgate will be optional, not standard.
We’ve seen quite a few criticisms surrounding the Multi-Flex Tailgate. If you have a ball hitch installed and you drop that inner gate down, you will likely damage the inner gate. The solution? Either take the ball hitch out when you aren’t using it or grab yourself a Curt Multi-flex Tailgate Hitch Solution. This handy little sensor serves as both a lock for the inner gate (the sensor knows when you have a hitch installed) and a cover for your receiver when you don’t have a hitch installed.
It’s pretty genius.
What do you think? Would you get much use out of a Multi-Flex Tailgate on a heavy-duty pickup truck?
