The Chevrolet Silverado HD is a powerful, impressive truck, no matter what you need it for. Now, Chevrolet is making this heavy-duty truck even better by adding the Multi-Flex Tailgate as an option for the 2022 model year.
The Multi-Flex Tailgate is already available on the full-size Silverado 1500. It boasts six positions for impressive cargo loading versatility. Add that to the already impressive Durabed with best-in-class cargo volume and the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD is set to be an unbeatable truck.
Here are some of the versatile features you can expect from the hardworking Multi-Flex Tailgate:
The Multi-Flex Tailgate gives you six positions to choose from, including an inner gate that folds down into a work table. You can even flip it down and turn it into a full-width step that can support up to 375 pounds.
With the tailgate open, you can flip up the load stop panel to prevent long items from sliding out of the bed.
Fold down the primary gate and then flip down the inner gate for easier access to the bed.
The inner gate load stop makes it easier to load multiple layers of cargo. Secure smaller items on the bottom and put the longer items on top. The load stop will keep them from sliding out.
Chevrolet announced in April that an electric version of the iconic Chevy Silverado pickup is on the way. Not much is known about the Silverado EV, but here’s what we do know.
According to Chevy, the Silverado EV will be able to drive up to 400 miles on a single charge, and will use Chevy’s proprietary Ultium platform. Ultium is a modular platform that makes the platform more flexible for a range of vehicle styles including cars, SUVs, and trucks, and makes batteries easier and more affordable to replace.
We also know that the Silverado EV will be built at the Factory ZERO assembly plant that sits on the border of Hamtramck and Detroit in Michigan. Formerly known as the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center, the Factory ZERO plant has rebranded to focus on the all-electric, crash-free, and traffic congestion-free.
The Silverado EV is likely to debut in the next couple of years, probably 2023. Chevy hasn’t revealed a release date yet, but it will use batteries made at the new Ultium Cells LLC factory in Lordstown, Ohio, which is still being built. This plant will be the main spot for making Ultium batteries, which will be used not just in the Silverado EV but the wide range of GM vehicles set to debut in the next few years.
