Multifunction Split Tailgate added to 2019 RAM 1500s
There were rumors of a split tailgate. The all-new 2019 RAM Truck came out and there was no sign of a split tailgate design. Now it’s here.
Adding extra functionality for cargo management, the tailgate can open in several different ways. With a 60-40 split, the tailgate can be opened on either side or opened down like a regular tailgate. Each door can swing 88 degrees.
“The Ram multifunction tailgate is intuitive to operate and owners will find it immediately useful,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand – FCA. “Combined with Ram’s class-exclusive RamBox feature and new tailgate step, we’re taking Ram’s cargo management and storage to the next level.”
RAM Trucks, say that the unlike other multi-element tailgates, this one doesn’t have to have the hitch removed before opening.
