That’s because it is gaining a new multi-function tailgate. You can learn more about this Silverado tailgate below.
A few years ago, the GMC Sierra came out with a tailgate that was quite unique. They called this tailged the MultiPro tailgate, and it had a small tailgate within the larger one to allow for added functionality. This Sierra tailgate could be used as a normal tailgate, it could be folded to give you a step into the bed, it could be flipped up to provide an extended barrier for cargo, and more. This MultiPro tailgate added so much capability to the GMC Sierra, and now, this GMC tailgate will be found on a Chevy truck.
Autoblog says, “Enthusiast website GM Authority learned from anonymous sources familiar with Chevrolet’s product plans that the Silverado will soon receive its own version of the MultiPro tailgate. It will be called either MultiFlex or Multi-Flex, a name Chevrolet has already trademarked, and it was initially scheduled to make its debut for the 2021 model year. Its arrival might be delayed until the 2022 model year due to the coronavirus pandemic, however.”
This new MultiFlex tailgate will be based on the GMC Sierra tailgate, but it might have a few of its own features and capabilities! We will have to wait to learn more about that.
