Best Features to Look for in a RAM Truck Tailgate

September 10th, 2022 by

When it comes down to it, there are countless ways that a RAM truck at Brown’s Elkader Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM can work for you. It can tackle any terrain and is ready to confront any project you throw its way. Even its innovative tailgate helps to make work easier on you — let’s learn more about this feature.


The available Multifunction Tailgate on RAM trucks makes accessing your truck bed easier than ever. It features 60/40 split swing-away doors that open up to 88 degrees. This helps you easily access your truck bed, even when you are in a tight space.

Prefer to use your tailgate to extend the length of your truck bed? That’s okay! You can also still drop your tailgate down if you need to utilize the extra cargo space.

Extra Strength

Supreme strength is also key when you need to use your tailgate to help carry your load. It’s also helpful when you want extra workspace when you’re on the go. The available Multifunction Tailgate on RAM trucks can hold up to 2,000 pounds.

Ease When Opening

No one wants to drop a heavy tailgate. You can opt for an available dampened tailgate, which helps you lower your tailgate with ease. It uses a strut connecting the rear box pillar to your tailgate, which serves as a damper.

Power Assistance

You can take it one step further with the available power release tailgate. The helpful feature lets you release your tailgate with a simple push of a button on your key fob. There’s no need to even leave your cabin.

We encourage you to visit our RAM dealership in Elkader, IA to see these innovative features in action. These are just a few reasons that we’re confident a RAM truck is just what you need!
