2014 Chevrolet Silverado: EZ Lower Tailgate
November 19, 2013
What a nice treat to open the tailgate on a pickup, and find out that it's damped and just gently lowers itself down.
Chevrolet calls it the EZ Lift and Lower tailgate, and it's on our 2014 Silverado 1500 Z71 LT Crew.
Unlatch the tailgate, take your hand away and the tailgate lowers itself to the full open position, with no worries about it crashing down to the stops.
Yes, the Toyota Tundra has had this damped tailgate feature for a few years. But I'm saying all pickups should come with it. Period.
