2021 Chevy Silverado officially gets Sierra’s multi-function tailgate

Posted on

Confirming previous reports, the Chevy Silverado gets the GMC Sierra’s multi-function tailgate. But it will arrive earlier than expected as it will be available on the 2021 model early next year. Reports had suggested it could be a 2022 development, so this is good news for people who wanted a nice tailgate and bow tie badge.

Since it is not the GMC Sierra, the Silverado tailgate is called MultiFlex instead of MultiPro. But as you can see in the video above, it works just like the GMC version. There is a section of the tailgate that folds open to provide some space for custom-sized loads or to be used as a step. The step flap can also pop up to act as a sort of stop or mini tailgate for some long loads.

The MultiFlex tailgate is seemingly one of the few notable updates to the Silverado line. More information about the new model year truck will be released on September 21.
