The 60-40 split isn't just for cars and SUVs anymore.

This feature will go gate-to-gate with GMC's new MultiPro tailgate in an epic battle utilitarian supremacy. The doors can each swing out a maximum of 88 degrees.

According to the automaker, the new design retains the capabilities of a fully-dampened, drop-down tailgate with remote release options, while the dual side-hinged tailgate doors improve access and utility. It's a regular tailgate, capable of moving up and down with dampers that slow down the movement, and it can also drop with a push of the key fob.

Ram claims that this new set of hinges will make things much easier for owners.

Police report: Steelers' Brown pushed woman to ground
Brown used both hands to push her and she told the police she sustained a wrist injury in the fall. The woman allegedly positioned herself in the doorway of Brown's home and refused to leave.

Each side can be swung out like a door, either individually or together, to offer closer access to the bed floor, and the entire unit can be dropped down like a traditional tailgate.

The gate comes with the spray-in bed liner and includes an optional center step to ease in entry to the bed.

After losing the heavy-duty pickup wars to General Motors in regard to towing capacity, Ram takes a jab at GMC with the Multifunction Tailgate at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.

The Ram Multifunction tailgate will reach dealerships during the second quarter of this year, and will be available on Ram 1500 models. The tailgate costs $995 and can the optional center step is $295. Public days kick off on Saturday.
