General Motors recently unveiled the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and with it, the new configurable Multi-Flex tailgate system. Critically, the new Multi-Flex tailgate feature will be offered on all 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 trim levels.
Per a recent press release, GM states that “The Multi-Flex Tailgate will be available in early 2021 on all new Silverado 1500 models.” We followed-up for clarification, and indeed, the Multi-Flex tailgate will be offered on all trim levels of the 2021 Chevy Silverado, from Work Truck, up to High Country.
This is particularly notable, because as GM Authority covered previously, the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 will offer expanded availability for its own version of the configurable tailgate, otherwise known as MultiPro. However, unlike the 2021 Chevy Silverado, the 2021 Sierra will not offer the feature on the base model.
In terms of usability and functionality, the Multi-Flex tailgate offered on the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 is identical to the MultiPro tailgate offered on the GMC Sierra. Both tailgates come with six different configurable positions to suit a variety of different jobs. These include the traditional primary gate opening, a full-width step, a foldable inner gate, a primary gate load stop, an inner gate load stop, and an inner gate work surface.
In addition to offering the new Multi-Flex configurable tailgate, the 2021 Chevy Silverado also comes with increased towing capacity for two of its engines, three new editions, new trailering features and technology, and Adaptive Ride Control suspension.
