Chevy Multi-Flex Tailgate Will Be Available on 2022 Silverado HD in Dixon, IL

2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD | Dixon, IL

Chevrolet has announced that the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD will offer the automaker’s innovative Multi-Flex Tailgate. This must-have feature has six configurations to accommodate a range of cargo transportation needs and to make bed access easier. The 2022 Silverado HD is coming this summer to Ken Nelson Chevrolet, and here’s what you can expect.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate has both an inner gate and an outer gate that you can adjust for different tasks. For instance, with the primary gate load stop, the outer gate lays flat and a load stop flips up, giving your bed extra length. The inner gate also has a load stop, keeping long items stacked on top of others in place.

Multi-Flex also lets you fold the inner gate down flat so you can get closer to the cargo in the bed, or you can convert the folded inner gate into a full-width step. The inner gate can even convert into a flat work surface, so you can use a computer with the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot or have an on-the-go tool bench.

In addition to the Multi-Flex Tailgate, you can get the available Power Up/Down tailgate option on the LT, LTZ, or High Country trims of the Silverado HD.

Previously, the Multi-Flex tailgate has only been offered on the Silverado 1500, which we also have at Ken Nelson Chevrolet. For pickup truck drivers who need the robust towing and hauling performance of the Silverado HD here in Dixon, Illinois, this is great news. Buy your Silverado 1500 or Silverado HD here at Ken Nelson Chevrolet.

We do know for sure that the electric Silverado will be built right here in the United States. The truck itself will be manufactured at the new Factory ZERO assembly plant in Michigan, and it will be powered by Ultium batteries made in Ohio. That’s not far from our great state of Illinois!

Here at Ken Nelson Chevrolet in Dixon, we can’t wait to welcome the electric Silverado. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as new details come out on this exciting new truck. In the meantime, you can find plenty of used Silverado trucks in stock now in our inventory.
