General Motors has been winning the attention of experts and enthusiasts alike with a feature on the GMC Sierra – the new multi-function tailgate called the MultiPro. Many speculated whether or not GM would be including the six-function tailgate on Chevrolet Silverado models as well. We have some news for you: the MultiPro tailgate will also be on Silverado models, according to spy shots of a prototype spotted in testing.
The multi-function tailgate will likely debut on the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado. As mentioned above, it can be configured in six different ways – from stair steps up into the bed for ease of loading to a truck bed extension to a work desk. It’s likely that the Chevrolet model won’t use the “MultiPro” name, as it has been trademarked by GMC and associated with GMC’s “Like a Pro” slogan.
Experts are already speculating that the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will receive the new multi-function tailgate as an option for the 2020 model year, while HD models may get it in mid-2020 or even 2021. Still, the six-way truck bed will be a highly anticipated feature on either option. While Chevrolet has not confirmed the feature for the Silverado lineup yet, the feature’s inclusion on prototype models is a positive sign.

this amazing tradition.

Chevy’s connection to baseball in our hometown, and it’s a telltale sign that
Opening Day is almost here,” remarked Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president,
Chevrolet Marketing, ahead of Opening Day. “The Traverse and Silverado

So why the Traverse and the Silverado of all Chevy’s
vehicles? Chevy and the Tigers chose to display those two models because of
what they represent: durability, reliability, and power. Those are three traits
the Tigers embody as well—and what they hope will take them to the World Series
But Chevy doesn’t just support the Tigers. In fact, the
bowtie brand also serves as the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball.
