Ram trucks are known for the convenience they offer to make your daily life easier. Whether you're using your Ram truck for work or play, you'll enjoy all the features it has to offer. Ram has recently introduced the new Multifunction Tailgate to its Ram 1500 trucks, offering the ultimate convenience for your workday. If you're curious to learn more about the Multifunction Tailgate, let the team at Rainbow Chrysler Dodge Ram of McComb help you discover this feature.


What is the Ram 1500's Multifunction Tailgate?

The multifunction tailgate on the Ram 1500 is unquestionably unique. It performs like the traditional tailgate of the past, but this more modern truck bed comes with the added benefit of versatility. With the Ram 1500, you'll be able to fold the tailgate down flat and open it on either side with a 60/40 split. These swing-away doors allow you easy access to all of the cargo in your truck without sacrificing strength. The updated design is perfectly suited to standing behind the bumper to grab your gear from the truck bed, even if a trailer is attached.

How does the Multifunction Tailgate work?

As mentioned above, Ram's new tailgate feature works through a 60/40 horizontal split. It can be configured in various different ways and will allow you to approach the cargo area with unprecedented ease. While the split doors are open, you can load and remove items directly from the bed, without reaching or sliding over the tailgate. Additionally, the Ram 1500 multifunction tailgate still holds as much weight as a traditional one-- up to 2,000 pounds. The Ram 1500 also offers other available features such as Tailgate Assist and the Rambox Cargo Management System with LED lighting and 115-volt outlets. Need help stepping up to the bed? Available power side running boards can help. These options all combine to make the Ram 1500 one of the most innovative and capable pickup trucks on the market.

What trims of the 2020 Ram 1500 is the multifunction tailgate available on?

This popular feature is available in multiple trims. The Limited, Laramie Longhorn, Rebel, and Laramie all offer the multifunction tailgate. A kick-out assistive step is also available to accompany the tailgate on any trim at an additional cost.

How much does it cost?

Choosing the multifunction tailgate for your new 2020 Ram 1500 will only cost you an additional $995-- a steal for the amount of capability you get with this useful feature. The retractable step will cost $295 to buy.
