2022 Chevy Silverado HD Adds Innovative Multi-Flex Tailgate

Chevrolet Silverado HD | Fuller Chevy GMC Blog | Rockland, ME

Chevrolet’s newest innovative truck feature, the Multi-Flex tailgate, debuted last year on the Silverado 1500. Now, the 2022 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD will offer this handy six-function tailgate as an option for heavy-duty pickup buyers as well.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate includes half a dozen different functions designed to improve loading, unloading, and access for the Silverado HD’s cargo box. The inner gate provides a standing work surface and has a load stop that prevents stacked items from sliding out of the bed. When the inner gate folds into a large step, it has a weight capacity of 375 pounds. You can then fold the inner gate down for closer, easier access to the bed.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate’s primary gate also includes a load stop to keep extra-long items from items. And as with any traditional tailgate, the primary gate folds down so you can easily load your Silverado HD.

With the addition of the innovative Multi-Flex Tailgate, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD helps you work smarter, not harder. You can simply activate the Multi-Flex Tailgate configurations with your key fob or two buttons on the tailgate. The instrument panel even includes a power tailgate button for easier control.

Test the functions of the Multi-Flex Tailgate — and the rest of the 2022 Silverado HD — for yourself when you visit Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck in Rockland, Maine.

Here’s Why GM Pickups Rule the Market

Why GMC Pickups Rule the Market | Fuller Chevrolet GMC Blog | Rockland, ME

GM trucks are laps ahead of the competition thanks to the longstanding popularity of the GMC Sierra and the sudden resurgence of the Chevrolet Silverado. GM has solidified its status as the best manufacturer of pickup trucks no matter your needs.

While competitors such as Fiat Chrysler’s Ram and the Ford F-150 have respectable popularity, the reputation of GM trucks outstrips them. The sales of the GMC Sierra outpaced those of the Ram, and impressive 2020 sales have moved the Chevrolet Silverado past both the Ford F-150 and the Ram to join the Sierra and give GM the crown in the pickup market.

A manufacturing transition led to lower sales for GM in early 2019. The new truck architecture developed by GM may have slowed down production, but despite the hiccup, GM still manufactured 807,923 full-size trucks throughout the entire year.  A total of 197,743 full-size trucks were built by the auto manufacturer in the first quarter of 2020, giving it a lead over Ford.

GM trucks have earned a reputation for reliability, strength, and versatility. Want to see why the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra have become the nation’s most beloved trucks? Contact us to learn more about these outstanding models.
