The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers even more functionality with the addition of the new Multi-Flex Tailgate, along with increased capability to make trailering even easier. The 2021 Silverado is on track to be the most versatile Silverado to ever hit the road.
The Multi-Flex Tailgate has six opening functions that make bed access easier and offers many loading options. The tailgate has a load capacity of 375 pounds, and you can configure it into a bench or step. You can even use it to extend bed length and stack heavy objects like lumber and cement blocks. You can also use the bed as a work desk with LED lighting and a 120-volt outlet for plugging in tools or charging electronics. The Multi-Flex Tailgate will be available on all 2021 Silverado 1500 models.
Improved efficiency engines and trailering technology
The 2021 Silverado has upped the trailering capability for the 2.7-liter Turbo and 3.0-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engines. The 2.7-liter mill can tow up to 9,600 pounds, while the turbo-diesel engine now maxes out at 9,500 pounds. On top of that, new alerts for trailer length and jack-knifing have been added to the trailering package, along with enhanced views of the bed and sides of the truck.
