Chevrolet dealer from Avon, Connecticut is proud to announce that GM brought the release of the brand-new Multi-Flex Tailgate on the Silverado one year earlier than previously scheduled


Torrington, CT, November 18, 2020: O’Neill’s, a Hartford Connecticut Area Chevrolet Dealer, is happy to announce that future owners of the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado will be able to fit their trucks with the Multi-Flex Tailgate, a feature that was originally scheduled for the 2022 model year.

Following the roaring success of a similar feature coming from another GM car manufacturer, GMC’s MultiPro tailgate, Chevrolet pushed the launch of the Multi-Flex Tailgate one year earlier than expected.

In September, Chevrolet 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 (170 kg), 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 2021Chevrolet Silverado 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 sold vehicle, the Silverado, will attract even more buyers as it becomes more versatile than ever before. Its new tailgate makes the truck’s bed easier to access and enhances the truck’s functionality.

Among other things, the Multi-Flex Tailgate prevents items from slipping out, expands Silverado’s bed so it can accommodate larger 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 O’Neill’s Chevrolet Buick: “We all know that the latest rendition of the Chevrolet Silverado is absolutely exceptional. Its remarkable sales numbers, that placed the model at the top of GM’s sales, are proof of that. Prospective pickup truck buyers choose the Chevrolet Silverado more than any other model on the market and it’s obvious why. By adding the Multi-Flex tailgate, the Silverado gets yet another differentiating factor from its competitors. You have to admire Chevrolet’s attention to detail as they dedicate time and effort to improve a part of their truck that most other car manufacturers don’t even consider needs changing for the past 2-3 decades.“

“We expect the Multi-Flex tailgate to complete an already well-rounded vehicle, one that will attract more buyers than ever before.”
