All New 2019 Chevy Silverado Tailgate Function at Georgtown ChevroletBlog Apr 14th, 2020
The New 2019 Silverado’s available enhanced tailgate from Georgetown Chevrolet will help you get the job done quick and easy!
There are 3 simple ways to raise or lower the tailgate:
- Center stack button inside the cab
- Tailgate Touchpad
The all-new tailgate feature has 4 choices:
- Easy lift - to help close
- Powerlock & Release - lower & lock with fob
- New power up & down- life assist, auto release, and ability to close or raise with a button. Power lockable for tools & supplies
If something is in the way the tailgate is designed to reverse direction as to not damage or injure anything. The tailgate can also lift manually too!
Using the Fob is super simple, all you need to do is make sure the truck is unlocked, then press the tailgate button twice. It’s very handy when your hands are full with a toolbag.
If your key is in your pocket, however, just press the tailgate touchpad button. Another option you can also do is press the button on the center stack when you’re sitting in the truck.
When you want to close the tailgate with the Fob, just press the tailgate button once, then press and hold it, as long as you hold the button, the tailgate will close. If you release the button before it’s fully closed however, it will reopen. When closing the tailgate manually, if you lift it about 4 inches, and then hold briefly it will finish closing on its own. Alternatively, when you’re inside the truck, if you hold the tailgate button on the center stack until the bell chimes, it will also close on its own.
