Chevrolet dealer near Waterbury, Connecticut is proud to announce that GM rescheduled the introduction of the brand-new Multi-Flex Tailgate on the Silverado one year earlier than previously announced


Torrington, CT, November 03, 2020: Northwest Hills, a Chevrolet dealer in Connecticut, is proud to announce that the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado will now feature the Multi-Flex Tailgate. Originally scheduled for the 2022 model year, Chevrolet pushed the launch of the new feature one year early, following the success of GMC’s MultiPro tailgate – a similar feature also under the GM umbrella.

In September, the company released a press statement in which they described the new feature.

“The Multi-Flex Tailgate offers Silverado customers six unique functions, allowing for easier access to bed cargo, enhanced loading solutions, and a standing workstation. With a weight capacity of 375 pounds, different configurations for the Multi-Flex Tailgate activate using a key fob or two tailgate-mounted buttons, one for the full gate and another for the second-tier loading and storage options. Combined with the Silverado Durabed – featuring impressive cargo space, LED lighting, a 120-volt outlet, and 12 fixed tie-downs – Multi-Flex makes the 2021 model the most functional and capable Silverado ever. The Multi-Flex Tailgate will be available in early 2021 on all new Silverado 1500 models.”

With the introduction of the Multi-Flex, Chevrolet’s most successful model, the Silverado, becomes even more versatile, offering an easier way to get the job done in any scenario. The new tailgate offers future owners the possibility of using their trucks in different circumstances with ease. It prevents items from slipping out, it converts the truck’s bed into an even larger one for bigger objects, it can store tools, and offers easier access to the cargo. It also can double as a work surface, a stepping platform for heavy loads and uploads, plus it might even feature an outdoor audio system.

Sean Sullivan, President and General Manager of Northwest Hills Chevrolet Buick GMC: “The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado is an exceptional pickup truck. A testament to that are its great sales numbers for the past several years and continuous buyer interest in the model. With the addition of the Multi-Flex tailgate, Chevrolet has given the Silverado yet another differentiating factor that will delight more prospective buyers. It takes a great car and makes it better by making it far more versatile in an area where other car manufacturers don’t even bother to add anything. A truck’s bed is its bread and butter so it makes sense to upgrade that portion of the vehicle to its full potential, especially considering how far the pickup truck has come in the past decade.”

“With so many improvements made to the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, we expect the Multi-Flex tailgate to complete a very well-rounded vehicle.”
