We're all familiar with the adage "work smarter, not harder". It's the age old advice that tells us to slow down, reassess, and ask the question, "Is this really the best way to do things?" Sometimes the best way to do things is not just the smart way, it's also the easier way. And with ease, comes efficiency—the easier it is to do a job, the faster we can get it done and the more time we have for...well, whatever we want.

So, pickup drivers, consider this one a gift—the 2019 Ram 1500 multifunction tailgate, a smart  upgrade that simplifies the unique functions of owning a pickup to make everything from loading heavy cargo to hosing down the bed, easier.

Debuting the first-of-its-kind 60-40 split, swing-away functionality, the Ram 1500's tailgate provides drivers increased utility and flexibility and builds upon its existing drop-down capability with remote release options.

Intuitive and easy to use, the Ram 1500 multifunction tailgate is outfitted with four configurations: open flat, open left door only, open right door only and open both doors. Each door swings open 88 degrees and drivers can make bed access even easier by adding on the optional retractable center-mounted step.

Drivers will find the new multifunction tailgate immediately useful, as its 60-40 split and different open configurations make it easier to:

  • access the bed
  • load and unload bulky items
  • load items from the curb
  • load items with a forklift
  • wash out the bed

The new multifunction tailgate will be available across all seven 2019 Ram 1500 models and go on sale later this year. For more information on the 2019 Ram 1500's multifunction tailgate, give us a call or stop by our Richmond, CA Ram dealership and speak with a member of our Ram sales team. We'd be happy to discuss the unique features of this hotly anticipated upgrade that will certainly allow you to work smarter, not harder.
