Ram Trucks 101 | The Available Ram Multifunction Tailgate

From the vehicle manufacturer that brought you such now-classic (available) features as the Active Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension and the RamBox® Cargo Management System comes yet another groundbreaking feat of truck engineering – the available Ram Multifunction Tailgate.

Retaining all the capabilities of a fully dampened, drop-down tailgate, the new and innovative Ram Multifunction Tailgate adds 60-40 split, swing-away functionality. That’s big news for small-business owners on the go, and here’s why.

With dual side-hinged tailgate doors and independent opening features, loading and unloading bulky items is less difficult, washout is more convenient and forklift loading is now possible. Plus, unlike other multi-element tailgates, the Ram Multifunction Tailgate is trailer-friendly – removing the trailer and hitch is not necessary before opening.

The Ram Multifunction Tailgate has a 2,000-pund load rating and four configurations: open flat, open left door only, open right door only and open both doors. Each door swings open 88 degrees and access can be further enhanced with a retractable center-mounted step option. To see the tailgate in action, watch the video below or, better yet, stop by your local BusinessLink dealership to test drive an All-New 2019 Ram 1500.
