2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD Adds Multi-Flex Tailgate

Silverado HD Multi-Flex Tailgate | Bangor, ME

Our favorite hardworking heavy-duty truck is more functional and versatile now, thanks to this exciting addition. The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD is following the lead of its light-duty counterpart and adding the innovative Multi-Flex Tailgate to its models. The Multi-Flex Tailgate features six unique functions that make it easier to use and access the Chevy Silverado HD truck bed so that loading and unloading becomes a simple task.

You can control the Multi-Flex Tailgate and switch between the six distinct settings through a button on your driver’s instrument panel, two buttons located on the tailgate, or on your key fob. The different functions of the tailgate include configurations on the primary and inner gate. As with any traditional tailgate, you can fold down the primate gate, but now you also have the ability to fold down the inner gate to access a full-width step that supports up to 375 pounds. An easy access mode on the inner gate helps you load and unload the bed, while a primary gate load stop and inner gate load stop helps secure your cargo, even those that are longer or taller. You can also transform the inner gate into a standing work surface so you can complete paperwork at the end of your job or enjoy a quick lunch.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate is available on all 2022 Silverado HD trims. You can find the latest Silverado HD models at Quirk Chevrolet of Bangor.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado to Be Available with 3.0-Liter Inline-Six Turbo-Diesel Engine

2020 Chevrolet Silverao

Earlier this summer, Chevy announced that the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado would be available with a diesel engine for the very first time. The new Duramax® 3.0-liter inline-six turbo-diesel engine will achieve best-in-class torque and horsepower and boost the Silverado’s fuel economy.

This engine will be available exclusively on four trims of the 2020 Silverado (the 2019 model is available in eight trims, for reference): LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country. This engine will join a diverse powertrain lineup for the Silverado, which currently includes five options.

Chevy has already released performance specs for the new turbo-diesel engine: 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The Duramax engine will be partnered with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

“From the moment the engine is started, to its idle, acceleration and highway cruising, the 3.0-liter Duramax performance will change perceptions of what a diesel engine can offer in refinement,” remarked Nicola Menarini, director for Diesel Truck Engine Program Execution. “With advanced technologies that draw on global diesel expertise, it’s a no-compromise choice for those who want the capability and driving range of a diesel in a light-duty truck.”

The new turbo-diesel engine boasts a number of other advanced engine technologies, including an all-aluminum construction, Active Thermal Management, a water charge air cooler, variable geometry turbocharging, and more.

The 2020 Silverado is expected to arrive at dealerships, including Quirk Chevrolet of Bangor, later this year.
