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.
