Earlier this week, GM Authority was first to bring you spy photos of a curious 2020 Chevy Silverado HD prototype undergoing testing with a camouflaged tailgate. We believed that the tarp-like cover over the tailgate was hiding the innovative MultiPro tailgate that debuted on the all-new 2019 GMC Sierra on the T1 platform, but couldn’t be complete sure, until now.
Our spy ended up getting… shall we say… a “closer” look at the Chevy Silverado HD prototype – revealing the tell-tale cut lines for the MultiPro behind the tarp. The sighting confirms, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the trick new tailgate will make its way to the Silverado HD. In addition, we assume that the light-duty Silverado 1500 will also be the lucky recipient of the feature.
We expect the Chevy Silverado 1500 to get the MultiPro tailgate for the 2020 model year (see more about 2020 Silverado) and the Chevy Silverado HD to get it either for the 2020i (2020 interim) or the 2021 model year. Chevy will likely have its own name for the feature, since MultiPro is most directly associated with GMC and its Like a Pro mantra.
