Six Ways Your Family Can Use the Multi-Flex Tailgate

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Multi-Flex Tailgate | Garland, TX

One of the coolest new options for the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the available Multi-Flex Tailgate. This new tailgate makes the truck’s Durabed an even more versatile and capable truck bed by offering six unique configurations.

Primary gate

The primary gate functions like a traditional tailgate. It can be opened using a button on the tailgate, the key fob, or a switch inside the cabin.

Primary gate load stop

This position is ideal for hauling longer items, like wood planks. Simply lower the primary gate and then flip up the load stop to secure items.

Folding inner gate

With the primary gate lowered, you can also fold down the inner gate to get closer to the cargo box. This is ideal when loading heavier items or reaching items that are further back in the bed.

Full-width step

You can fold the inner gate into a full-width step. With a maximum weight capacity of 375 pounds, it is perfect for getting in and out of the bed.

Inner gate load stop

When loading two tiers of cargo, you can use the inner gate load stop to secure longer items stacked on top of shorter items.

Inner gate work surface

The inner gate work surface is great when working at a job site or when your family needs another surface at your campsite.
