The full-sized pickup truck space continues to be a nuclear arms race between America’s biggest three automakers. It’s long been the situation where other competitors struggle to keep up in this space, as General Motors, Ford Motor Company, and Stellantis funnel their most essential dollars and people towards these highly profitable, highly sought after vehicles. And when these teams aren’t developing off-road ballistic missiles such as the Ram 1500 TRX or Ford F-150 Raptor, they’re working on ways to improve their usefulness for the job site. For example, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD joins its half-ton little brother and cousins over at GMC in getting a multifunction tailgate.

2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD Multi-Flex Tailgate

Branded as the “Multi-Flex” tailgate for Chevrolet and “MultiPro” for GMC products, this six-way tailgate expands the usability of the backside of GM truck family. Below is a video demonstrating how it works on the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD.

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD equipped with a Multi-Flex tailgate function allows for easier access to bed cargo, enhanced loading solutions and a standing workstation. The tailgate boasts a weight capacity of 375 pounds (170 kg), and some functions can be activated using a key fob or two tailgate-mounted buttons, one for the full gate and another for the second-tier loading and storage options. The trick tailgate will be offered on all 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD trims. These range from Work Truck, LT, LTZ and High Country.

Along with the Multi-Flex tailgate, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD sees a few other minor updates. These include a new set of gloss-black finished 20-inch wheels that are available on LT, LTZ and High Country trim levels. A Greenstone Metallic hue is also added to the truck’s color palette. A “Seat Belt Adjustable Guide Loops” for the front seats is also new for the 2022 Silverado HD.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
