The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is back and better than ever for the 2021 model year, and it now comes with an innovative Multi-Flex Tailgate. This smart feature makes an array of jobs easier, allowing you to reconfigure the tailgate as a workbench, step ladder, and more. It also allows you to configure the bed more easily for large objects thanks to second-tier loading and storage options.
The Multi-Flex Tailgate has six distinct functions. It can hold 375 pounds, and it pairs with Durabed features such as LED lighting, a 120-volt outlet, and 12 cargo tie-downs to make the 2021 model year the most functional ever. Configurations for the tailgate include a step ladder, full gate, workstation, and bed extender feature.
Another intelligent aspect of the new tailgate is that drivers can activate configurations using either a key fob or two of the mounted buttons. With a simple press of a button, you can instantly transform your Silverado 1500 into a mobile workstation, or you can simply make it easier to get into the bed. With other trailering improvements, the Silverado lets you tow up to 13,300 pounds and carry 2,280 pounds in maximum payload. You’ll also find over 89 cubic feet of maximum available cargo space.
This is just one of many new features on the Silverado. Other features to improve capabilities include the Trailer Length Indicator, Jack-Knife Alert, and an enhanced Cargo Bed View to let you monitor your cargo from the cabin. Test drive the Silverado 1500 at Greenbrier Chevrolet Buick to experience these features in person.
