2022 Silverado HD Adds Multi-Flex Tailgate

2022 Silverado HD | Greer, SC

For 2022, Chevrolet will add an important feature designed to maximize usefulness, versatility, and enjoyment for Silverado HD models. The Multi-Flex Tailgate, already a feature on the 2021 Silverado 1500, presents six settings for greater functionality. Easily operated from the key fob or via two buttons mounted on the tailgate, the available Multi-Flex Tailgate is a game changer for days on the job and outdoor adventures.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate operates like a traditional gate, but also offers a load stop function to help secure long items from getting loose. Reaching into the bed is easier thanks to the inner gate, which folds down, and the full-width step that can bear the brunt of 375 pounds. The inner gate also features a load stop, helping to ensure items on the second tier won’t escape while you’re on the go.

Finding a stable, safe, and clean spot to work on your laptop or spread out plans or paperwork is nearly impossible on a dusty, dirty worksite. The Multi-Flex Tailgate solves that issue with a work surface that folds out of the inner gate. You can also use the work surface to maximize vertical storage space.

Chevrolet’s 2022 Silverado HD models will be available this summer. Visit Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina, to get a closer look at the Multi-Flex Tailgate on the 2021 Silverado 1500 or to learn more about the 2022 Silverado HD.

Here’s What We Know So Far About the Electric Chevy Silverado

2021 Chevrolet Silverado | Greer, SC

GM recently announced that Chevrolet’s popular pickup truck is going electric. With a new electric Chevrolet Silverado coming to the Chevy lineup, GM continues to pave the way for an electric, zero-emissions future with its innovative electric vehicles.

Not only will the new electric Chevy Silverado become Chevrolet’s first full-size battery-powered pickup truck, but it will also be available for a wide range of uses. Whether you opt for the retail and fleet-oriented versions of the electric Silverado, or you simply want to enjoy the thrill of driving electric in your everyday life, the Chevy Silverado EV will blend Chevrolet’s classic pickup design and capabilities with GM’s advanced electric technology.

With over 400 miles of expected zero-emissions driving when fully charged, the electric Chevy Silverado will be powered by GM’s exclusive Ultium batteries. The Ultium platform is developed from GM’s new company, Ultium Cells LLC, which is based in Lordstown, Ohio. The full-size electric truck will be built at GM’s Factory ZERO assembly plant in Michigan, the same location that produces the GMC Hummer EV and upcoming Cruise Origin. A $2.2 billion investment in the facility in 2020 marked GM’s first EV-only assembly plant that continues to change the way electric vehicles are developed and built.

Here at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina, we look forward to learning more about the electric Silverado in the coming months — and sharing what we learn with you!

How Are the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado HD Different?

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 & Silverado HD - Greer, SC

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD are both powerful and capable trucks, but they’re far from identical. If you are looking to buy a Chevy pickup, here are some of the key differences between the Silverado 1500 and Silverado HD.

Different Sizes 

The Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD trucks are bigger compared to the Silverado 1500. The Silverado 1500 is classified as a half-ton truck, while the 2500HD is a three-quarter-ton truck and the 3500HD is a one-ton truck. This means Silverado HD models have larger dimensions in terms of weight, length, width, and height.

Different Capabilities

Because the Chevy Silverado HD is bigger, it can tow and haul more weight than the Chevy Silverado 1500. Gas-powered Silverado 3500HD trucks have a payload of up to 7,442 pounds and a maximum towing capacity of 17,200 pounds. Diesel 3500HD models can carry up to 6,523 pounds and tow up to 36,000 pounds. The Silverado 2500HD also offers impressive capacity, with up to a 3,979-pound payload and towing up to 18,500 pounds. While the Chevy Silverado 1500 can’t tow and haul quite as much, it still offers powerful capability for its size, with a maximum towing capacity of 13,300 pounds and a maximum payload of 2,280 pounds.

More Engine Options

The 2021 Silverado 1500 has six engine options for you to choose from, whereas the 2021 Silverado HD only presents two. You can equip the Silverado 1500 with a standard 4.3-liter V6, 2.7-liter turbo, 3.0-liter Duramax® turbodiesel, two 5.3-liter V8 engines, or a 6.2-liter V8. For the Silverado HD, you can choose between a 6.6-liter V8 and a Duramax® turbodiesel engine.

Overall, the Chevy Silverado 1500 is best for light-duty jobs and everyday driving. If you’re looking for a truck to handle heavy-duty work, the Chevy Silverado HD is a safe bet. To test-drive either of these outstanding pickups, stop in to see us here at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina.
