2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 adds Multi-Flex Tailgate

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Fort Meade, FL

When it comes to towing and hauling, few vehicles can match the capabilities of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Thanks to some new advancements from the team at Chevrolet, it’s going to be even harder for the competition to catch up.

Chevrolet just announced that the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will offer an available Multi-Flex Tailgate.

You might recognize the Multi-Flex Tailgate as an exclusive feature for the GMC Sierra pickup truck, where it is known by the MultiPro moniker. GM is now preparing to transfer that feature over to its Silverado line of trucks.

With this advanced tailgate technology, Silverado drivers will have access to six unique tailgate configurations. These configurations will make it easier than ever to store your supplies and cargo in the bed of the Silverado.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate isn’t the only advancement Chevrolet is introducing to the latest Silverado model. Accompanying this new tailgate is a plethora of trailering and towing enhancements for the signature Chevrolet truck.

Thanks to a more refined 2.7-liter Turbo engine, the tow rating of the Silverado 1500 Crew Cab increases to 9,300 pounds. The tow rating of Silverado models equipped with the 3.0-liter Duramax engine also increases to a maximum of 9,500 pounds.

These are only a few of the enhancements that the 2021 model of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is set to receive. Learn more about what this latest Silverado can offer to you by reaching out to our team at Greenwood Chevrolet.

The Silverado is One of the Easiest Vehicles to Maintain and Repair

Chevrolet Silverado Maintenance and Repair | Fort Meade, FL

The Chevrolet Silverado is a truly reliable ride, but don’t just take our word for it. U.S. News & World Report recently named the Silverado one of the easiest vehicles to maintain and repair, which means you’ll save money and time when you opt for this pickup. The editors at U.S. News specifically cited the longevity of the Silverado as one of its most prized characteristics.

What does U.S. News mean when it refers to “reliability”? The Silverado and other models named to the Top 10 Easy Cars to Maintain and Repair list were evaluated based on the length of time between service intervals, simplicity of repairs, the space of the engine compartment, and ease of finding replacement parts. The Silverado checks boxes in each of these categories, making it easy for mechanics to fix quickly and efficiently.

“Today’s cars last longer than vehicles of old, have longer service intervals between needed maintenance, and are generally more reliable. They’re also much more complex, with costly components that are more easily replaced than repaired. The typical service interval requires much more than changing the oil,” reads the U.S. News release.

Silverado durability is also due in part to the simplicity of certain mechanical components. For example, many GM models come with naturally aspirated engines, which are less complex than turbocharged powertrains. Plus, the roomy engine compartment makes it easy to access maintenance points, while the steel design is easier to repair than the aluminum found on some competitors’ models.

Silverado HD and Sierra HD Win Technology Innovation Award at CES

Chevrolet Silverado HD in Fort Meade, FL

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD have been singled out by ALG to receive a Technology Innovation Award. ALG is an organization that forecasts the residual value of cars in the U.S. and Canada. They awarded the prize to General Motors for the innovative trailering camera systems on the Silverado and Sierra. This is the second year that ALG has awarded the technology prize at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Trailer views, inside and out

The judges heaped praise on the trailering systems of the Sierra and Silverado, which employ numerous cameras to provide multiple views around the vehicles from the bed, around the outside of the vehicle, and even through the trailer.  A transparent trailer view in the vehicles uses cameras to create a view representing what’s immediately behind the trailer, taking the stress out of backing a trailer and eliminating the need for a second person to help you maneuver. You’ll be able to enjoy a clear view of what’s behind the trailer on an 8-inch infotainment touch screen on the truck’s dashboard. This handy technology is more than user friendly — it’ll give you a sense of security greater than ever before.
