In September this year, GM unveiled the Multi-Flex tailgate as an accessory for the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. During that time, it was confirmed that Chevrolet’s version of the MultiPro tailgate of GMC would not be available until 2021.
Right now, we got new information for the Multi-Flex tailgate. It has been confirmed that orders for this custom part opened on December 17. But at the same time, its production is not scheduled this year. Reliable sources indicated that its production would kickstart in February 2021.
Let us be clear here, though. Both Chevrolet’s Multi-Flex and GMC’s MultiPro are the same. They only differ in branding. Notably, GMC’s tailgate has been out for several months until its production was halted temporarily.
Since the Multi-Flex tailgate is now available, we can talk about its variations and price. In the accessory catalog of Chevrolet, they are listed as three-digit codes. They are 1WT, 1CX, 2CX, 1LT, 1SP, 2LT, 1LZ, and 3LZ. Based on the image below, you can see that the Multi-Flex tailgate 1LZ and 3LZ cost $260. The 1CX, 2CX, 1LT, 1SP, and 2LT have the same price of $445. Meanwhile, the 1WT package is the most expensive, with a price tag of $595.
The trim level for these packages is explained in the image below. See which one is suitable for you.
So what are the features of this tailgate? Well, it comes with a weight capacity of 375 pounds and provides up to six different functions. Generally, it can enhance the loading capability of the Silverado 1500. In fact, you can even utilize it as a standalone workstation. It can make the truck a guaranteed utility vehicle.
But of course, these are not the only accessories that you can get for your Silverado 1500. There are accessories on GMC that can fit your Chevy truck. A fine example is the tailgate speaker (part number: 19417163) and lights (part number: 84347814). These components are priced at $699 and $150, respectively.
Now, several things are happening for Chevy’s Silverado 1500. For instance, the 2021 Silverado provides more trailering capability.
