The new Silverado is expected to come with the new tailgate in this mid-year update.
We can declare it officially, but alas, it’s not official yet.
Recently, GM Authority spied that the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado with what could be termed as GMC’s Multipro Tailgate.
This is a pretty exciting sight because the Multipro Tailgate was exclusive to the GMC Sierra. And now, after three spied sightings of the Silverado featuring this new tailgate, we can almost say for sure that the new Silverado will come with the new Multipro tailgate.
The Silverado has been a benchmark pick-up truck in the Chevrolet line-up. The one that was spied with the Multipro gate had the gate camouflaged with a chequered wrap. Though, this time the wrap far less compared to the other models that we have seen so far. It used to be more covered in the previous models, and on top of that, they were also painted in different colors.
The model that has been spied was a Heavy Duty Silverado with the Double Cab – Long Bed Style. Also, it was from the LT trim level because of the body-color door handles, along with the chrome front and rear bumpers. These are the features that match the one on the LT.
Though it is worth mentioning that the Multipro tailgate was mentioned in the 2020 Silverado owners manual, the tailgate never got featured in the car. So, we can assume that this new tailgate will come in the 2021 model. Also, given that both the Silverado and the Sierra are yet to get there midcycle enhancement so that the Multipro gate can make its way into the 2020 model.
Furthermore, this time the Silverado will feature a lighter, stronger, and larger bed. The bed has been claimed to be larger than any competitor. On top of that, there are six different powertrains on offer that includes the Duramax® 3.0L Turbo-Diesel, a responsive 2.7L Turbo, and the powerful and advanced 6.2L V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management.
Aside from that, with a towing capacity of 12,100 pounds, the Silverado 250 is on par with most of its competitor, and with the new tailgate, it just became more utilitarian.
