Whether you’re using your truck on the jobsite, hauling gear to the campsite, helping a friend move, or doing anything that might require easy access and more space, the Multi-Flex Tailgate helped make it happen. Read on to learn more about Chevrolet’s Multi-Flex Tailgate, available on all full-size Chevrolet pickup truck models, with your source for all things automotive in Calgary and beyond: Jack Carter Chevrolet GMC!
The 6 Position Multi-Flex Tailgate
A multi-function tailgate, the Multi-Flex offers traditional tailgate functionality alongside five new positions, creating unmatched versatility and convenience for every scenario. Those six positions are:
- Primary Gate Access
- Primary Gate Load Stop
- Easy Access Foldable Inner Gate
- Full-Width Step
- Inner Gate Load Stop
- Inner Gate Work Surface
1. Primary Gate Access
This is your classic tailgate functionality, with a hinged tailgate dropping down to provide access to your truck’s cargo bed. The Multi-Flex Tailgate scores bonus points for its power release button, found on the key fob as well as inside the truck’s cabin or on the tailgate itself.
2. Primary Gate Load Stop
Once the primary gate is open, there is a load stop that raises to keep items from sliding out of the cargo bed. Simply pop up the load stop and you’ve added almost an extra two feet to your cargo space!
3. Foldable Inner Gate
The Multi-Flex Tailgate offers a foldable inner gate, which folds down to provide easy access to both load and unload the truck’s box.
4. Full-Width Step
Making it easier than ever to carry items into and out of the truck’s bed, the Multi-Flex Tailgate offers a full-width step. Simply fold the inner gate down, and your Chevy truck has a step up on the competition—quite literally. With an assist handle on the driver’s side, and a max weight of 375 pounds, this smart step will make loading a breeze.
5. Inner Gate Load Stop
Much like the primary gate load stop, you’ll also find an inner gate load stop built into the Chevrolet Multi-Flex Tailgate, helping to keep secondary items secure inside the box of the truck.
6. Inner Gate Work Surface
Need to break out the laptop to answer a few emails, or go over some blueprints? The Multi-Flex Tailgate offers a convenient work surface. Simply open the inner gate outward, and you’ve got a standing desk!
If all that wasn’t enough, the Chevrolet Multi-Flex Tailgate even offers a built-in, Bluetooth-connected speaker, so you can enjoy music while getting your work done.
