Developed in partnership between Ford and Magna
While it may seem like a gimmick on the surface, the forthcoming Ford F-150 will receive a very interesting power sliding rear window when it arrives on dealer lots later this year.
Instead of the normal seams and mouldings of a normal rear window, along with three pieces of glass, the one in the new F-150 will be seamless, allowing for a cleaner look while also reducing the number of parts used for the mechanism.
Simplification of the window wasn’t the only goal. By reducing the number of panes of glass (three down to two), uninterrupted defrost capability can be added while also contributing to the F-150’s weight savings.
