2022 Chevy Silverado Multi-Flex Tailgate Under Constraint21
The refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 made its debut back in September with a variety of changes and updates. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 Chevy Silverado’s Multi-Flex Tailgate is currently under constraint.
The Chevrolet Silverado’s Multi-Flex Tailgate feature is tagged with RPO code QK2, and is currently unavailable to order with refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado Regular Cab and Double Cab body configurations. The reason behind the constraint is currently unclear. The Multi-Flex Tailgate is still available to order for Chevy Silverado Crew Cab models.
The Chevy Silverado’s Multi-Flex Tailgate is normally available as an option for all trim levels, and priced at $445. To note, the Regular Cab body configuration is available for WT trims, while the Double Cab is available for WT, Custom, LT, and RST trims.
For those who may be unaware, the Chevy Silverado Multi-Flex Tailgate is similar to the GMC MultiPro tailgate first introduced for the GMC Sierra. Like the MultiPro Tailgate, the Chevy Multi-Flex Tailgate offers multiple positions and configurations for expanded functionality. For example, the Multi-Pro tailgate incorporates a load stop for long items in the bed, as well as a standing workstation, and step-entry into the bed, and several other configurations.
As a reminder, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is offered with four different engine options, starting with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, which was recently uprated to 430 pound-feet of torque. Further engine options include the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and finally, the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax.
Under the body panels, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 rides on the GM T1 platform. Production takes place at the GM Silao Plant in Mexico, the GM Fort Wayne Assembly facility in Indiana, and later this spring, the GM Oshawa Plant in Canada.

Chevrolet needs to keep the double cab on the 2022 Trail Boss the truck is like a highway truck with the crew cab it’s not a truck anymore way too long
Vendor sourced item designed and made by Flex-N-Gate LLC of Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. Vendor must be having issues with sub tier suppliers to them caused by all these crazy supply chain disruptions created by the Chinese virus. Just like chips.
Great design by Flex-N-Gate.
Flex-N-Gate designs and builds a huge majority of pickup tailgates for the automakers.
Not really. The crew cab with the 5.5 box (the way the vast majority of crew cabs are bought), is the exact same length as the standard box double cab (231.88″).
True, but I think John means it carries 5 adults, as in a DOT highway truck. Because of the 4 big doors, it just makes it look longer. A off-road truck just looks better without the 4 big doors. IMHO
While they’re at it, the ugly grill and stupid placement of mirrors should be on constraint.
DOUBLE cAB SHOULD
Double Cab should be available on ALL TRIM LEVELS!
Why, nobody buys them anymore.
A close friend of mine is a Chevy/GMC dealer, and he can’t move double cabs, especially not in the up trim levels like the LTZ, Trail Boss and RST. Even in the cheaper LT trim level, they sit on his lot, while people line up to buy LT crew cabs.
I was in Michigan last summer and watched them build F-150’s. I didn’t see any extended cabs, and only 1 or 2 6.5″ boxes while there, so I asked if the extended cabs were built elsewhere. I was told they’re built in the same plant, but they don’t get orders for many extended cabs or standard boxes anymore.
I buy the double cab for my dog, she’s the only one who rides back there.
Thumbs up on the double cab John
@John. Agreed, Double cab buyers are out there. Not everyone needs 4 big doors. Not everyone has a big tribe to haul around. Would rather have the longer bed. Afterall, isn’t that what trucks are for? People have forgot what trucks were designed to do, that is to do work, not to be a soccer mom taxi. Buy a minivan if that is what your going to do.
So why don’t you just order what you want and let the crew cab drivers have their larger cabins? For me, mine will be used for pulling my 5th wheel camper and also to seat 4 adults comfortably. This is a good fit for me.
Another feature deleted and made unavailable by Chevrolet
If GM can’t make a tailgate, how are they going to make a truck?
Keith: GM doesn’t make this tailgate. It’s designed and made by Flex-N-Gate LLC of Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. BTW: The owner of Flex-N-Gate owns the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars.
Yeah, U iz smart boi.
This article would b a lot more informative if there was a hint as to why it’s unavailable. It would also be really interesting to know in the GMC version is still available.
Pretty much any configuration of Silverado the general public wants is highly constrained. LTZs, High Countrys, 5.3l v8s, 6.2l v8s, 3.0l diesels, all constrained!
How about 2.7 4 cylinders in a truck. Anyone? anyone? Thought xo..
They’re forcing the market with 4 cylinders to further Bidens CAFE stds and EV initiatives.
Same ol trash interior…..
GM Authority should just create a sticky on the main page for all of the parts that are currently on constraint across the board. It would save them time and space, considering that every week we are getting 10-12 new parts that are unavailable. Perhaps they could even create a sticky for the outlandish fuel prices that the US has been experiencing over the past 1 1/2 years. A weekly update on the average price of fuel would be nice.
Just my $.02.
