It is not all about engines, performance, luxurious equipment… Every truck must be stylish, but also functional. How many times you had problems with parts that weren’t on your priority list when you were buying a vehicle? So, two siblings, 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 and 2019 Chevy Silverado will make some things easier for all truckers with tailgate options.
There are plenty of options for these two pickups. Several trim levels, plus cab configurations, plus engines choice now being even expanded with diesel units… So, using these parts, we can configure over 30 trucks of each Silverado or Sierra in 2019. Now, with tailgate options, the choice is going to be even tougher.
2019 Silverado 1500 Comes With Four Tailgate Types
Not all tailgates will be available for each trim level or configuration. Well, for some of them we will have to spend extra money for additional packages. First and the standard one is a classic, drop-down type we already know. Two versions are torsion-bar units, which come for upper versions of the truck. The last type of tailgate 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 is going to offer is the most impressive one.
Electrically operated tailgate
This tailgate is innovative and pretty simple to use. Drivers just need to tap the button and it opens. However, more work is needed to set up the height. But, all controls are coming from the commanding center in the cabin, so there is no need for physical setup or corrections. We will see how this feature is going to be accepted by fans since experts are not sure it is quite functional as it is impressive at the first sight.
A Six-Way Tailgate for 2019 GMC Sierra 1500
A baby brother is also surprising its fans with innovations. There are no so many options, but the six-way tailgate is definitely one of the most interesting. Well, it could be kind of complicated to use. Since such tailgate was never installed on any truck, we will need a walkthrough.
First, by clicking the button on the tailgate, we will activate it and set up to the classic position. From the dumped position we can rise up the rear end of the tailgate so the oversized load cannot slip.
However, this is not all. Next position unfolds the tailgate further. So, what was a sort of extended back bed wall, turns into step. This will help you jump into the box easier. Again, the next position is activated by the single tap on the button.
There are also few other positions when only inner tailgate opens when the rear end of the truck turns into a standing workstation. Odd, but still functional for a laptop, or similar item. Finally, we can rise up the step as a load stop. It is similar to position 2 for extended load but stands at a higher level.
CarbonPro Truck Box
This is not all since the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 makes further improvements with the bed. Instead of the steel box, Denali model of this truck will use CarbonPro Truck Box. Besides its strength, it will drop the overall weight for around 62 lbs. According to ads, this will be the most durable box in the truck industry.
