Two-Way Split Tailgate from RAM

In case you haven’t heard the news, Ram Trucks are becoming ever-more popular among drivers. The Ram 1500 has recently been named as Truck of the Year for the second consecutive year, which has never been done before. Well, now they are patenting something that seems a bit radical, but will definitely be awesome! The two-way split tailgate from Ram is currently underway, and will help with a lot of functions.

Two-Way Split Tailgate
Just imagine this tailgate with a split down the middle and you will get an idea of what is to come.

Everybody should be familiar with how tailgates on trucks fold down to help with laborious tasks. Ok, now imagine if it could do that, as well as opening from the middle like double doors, and each “door” of the tailgate being able to fold out or down on its own as well.

Having the capabilities mentioned above, the tailgate will make it easier for loading and unloading cargo and will be able to support different shapes and sizes. Sometime you try to load a bed into a truck, but is just a few inches too big to close the tailgate. This means that you have to leave your tailgate down just for those few inches. Well, with the two-way split tailgate from Ram, you can fold one down, while the other stays up and supports other cargo. Perfect!

Bad news is that we don’t know when we can first expect that appearance of this new design in Ram trucks. In fact, we don’t even have all the information on their plans. So make sure you keep your eyes peeled for any more information about this tailgate style, and we here at Corwin Dodge Ram will do the same.
