Loading just got easier with the MultiPro Tailgate that opens in six different ways to accommodate varying needs. The two-stage gate folds down in two parts. First, the top gate folds parallel to the ground with just the upper half of the door so you could use it as a standing workstation or as an easier way to get to items into the bed. Fold down the rest of the tailgate and lower the inner gate for a step into the bed that holds up to 375 pounds. Or use the gate in this position as a seat with a footrest after a long day on the job. Lastly, you could fold up the upper half of the gate so it looks like a regular tailgate again, but keep the inner gate open to act as a stopper for extra-long cargo.

Inside the 2019 GMC Sierra is a multitude of features to help you manage your drive, including a multicolor head-up display that puts essential information in your view. You can customize the data that shows to project key vehicle info in a 3-by-7-inch display while keeping your eyes on the road.
