Default New Sierra tailgate

You guys have probably seen the commercial (na na na na, hey, hey, goodbye).

This article talks about the revolutionary tailgate from GMC.

It’s cool in theory but how much is just gimmicky vs truly useful. It’s like a leatherman tool, you probably only use the knife blade and pliers, the rest stays mostly unused.

I think it's useful as fuck until you drop it on a trailer hitch or back it up into something forgetting it's down and then never fix it cuz it's a $2500 tailgate (I'm guessing, it's probably more )

much like a lot of new truck (or vehicle in general) developments.

camera's to see inside of your trailer.
a knob to back up your trailer.
the extendable handle to get into your bed

etc etc

I think it's fair to say your tailgate is significantly cheaper to replace than this one tho.

These are my thoughts also. I cracked up when he put his laptop up there, lol

The step he used to load the dirtbike looked like a nice thing to have, but I think they used some camera trickery because i'm pretty sure you still couldn't get the dirtbike up there solo even with the step unless you have 4' arms. It's too far forward. Maybe i'm wrong there

I'd hate to know how much that thing costs to replace, or how much it added to the purchase price of the truck. Probably an easy $3k+, and IMO doesn't add anywhere near $3k worth of utility

I wish things were like the old days and you could order individual options instead of packages. Instead you have to spend $3k+ for the one little option you want. Or, it’s a standard feature and the whole price of the vehicle goes up.

Loading a dirt bike is that easy, I used to step on my stand or a bucket but easily done by yourself unless you’re really short.

price out your tailgate... especially if it has any options.

then you'll also know why tailgates get stolen so frequently.

I want a work truck with a couple extra options to make it comfy. NOPE. Gotta jump up to the next trim level for $8k and add a $1900 cold weather package to get a heated seat.

I would have spent the effort on the interior. If they had a 12" screen like the Dodge and better interior amenities, it might sell better.

I personally don't care about a monster screen

I typically turn them off while driving.

the difference is I remember I can't drop it due to the 27' box attached to the truck. With just the hitch ball installed I'd FOR SURE forget it was there and smash that thing.
