The MultiPro tailgate offered on the GMC Sierra 1500 adds flexibility and functionality thanks to a total of six individual tailgate configurations. However, for those customers that prefer a standard tailgate, rather than the MultiPro unit, the standard option is still available.
The latest 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 extends the availability MultiPro tailgate to the SLE and Elevation trim levels, making the feature standard across the GMC Sierra 1500 lineup, with the exception of the base-level Sierra, which now offers the feature as an available option for $595. As a reminder, the previous 2020 GMC Sierra included MultiPro as standard on the three highest trims, namely the SLT, AT4, and Denali, while the 2020 Elevation trim offered the features as an optional extra for Crew Cab models, and the 2020 SLE and base trims didn’t offer the option at all.
Introduced with the 2019 Sierra, the MultiPro tailgate is now standard on more trims, underlining the feature’s popularity. However, for those customers that prefer a more traditional setup, the GMC Sierra 1500 SLE and Elevation trims can still be optioned with a standard tailgate, rather than the MultiPro tailgate, if desired.
Replacing the MultiPro tailgate (RPO code QK2) with a standard tailgate (RPO code QK1) reduces pricing for the SLE trim by $500, while pricing for the Elevation is reduced by $400 with a standard setup.
As GM Authority covered previously, the GMC Sierra 1500 MultiPro tailgate is available with a Kicker Sound System, which connects to audio streaming inputs through either a wired USB cable, or wirelessly through Bluetooth. The system puts out 100 watts of sound through two four-inch coaxial drivers and a small amplifier, with controls built right in that make it perfect for tailgating or camping.
Earlier this month, GM Authority exclusively reported that GMC dealers are no longer able to order the MultiPro tailgate step lights for the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500.
