GM's Next Bed Step

Quote :
Here’s a look at General Motors’ latest patent for a deployable tailgate-integrated step. Clearly, the bed-step battle is getting heated, and Chevy isn’t about to be outdone, so it’s filed a patent for its own deployable tailgate-integrated step, similar to Ford’s. Here’s a look:



Part of the top of the tailgate flips downward, and a hinged step then flips out towards the rear of the vehicle. There’s also a handle that’s stored inside the tailgate housing, and is hidden by the step when it isn’t deployed.



Just look at that handle assembly. Quite the sophisticated bit of advanced engineering.




Truck Yeah

Looks overly complicated but then again most things seem to be that way these days.

I never knew it was that hard to get into the bed of a truck to begin with.
