Title
(EN) SWING AND DROP TAILGATE
(FR) HAYON PIVOTANT ET À ABAISSEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
A swing and drop tailgate (110) is configured to undergo two distinct motions, each with advantages depending on circumstances. The swing and drop tailgate (110) can undergo a rotation motion about a hinge (752,753), as well as a swing down motion via a linkage (706 and 707, 708 and 709). The swing down motion allows closer access to the bed (104), and extends less far from the rear of the vehicle (102) as compared to the drop motion. The motions may be manually controlled, or actuator controlled. At least first and second latches (720 and 722, 721 and 723) may constrain motion, or prevent, of the tailgate (112). A tailgate assembly (110) includes a post assembly (114) and a tailgate (112), that may move together as a rigid body when dropping, or move relative to one another when swinging.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un hayon pivotant et à abaissement conçu pour subir deux mouvements distincts, chacun présentant des avantages en fonction des circonstances. Le hayon pivotant et à abaissement peut subir un mouvement de rotation autour d'une charnière, ainsi qu'un mouvement de pivotement par l'intermédiaire d'une liaison. Le mouvement de pivotement permet un accès plus proche du lit et s'étend moins loin de l'arrière du véhicule par comparaison au mouvement d'abaissement. Les mouvements peuvent être commandés manuellement ou commandés par actionneur. Un ou plusieurs verrous peuvent limiter le mouvement du hayon ou l'empêcher. Un ensemble hayon peut comprendre un ensemble montant et un hayon, qui peuvent se déplacer ensemble sous la forme d'un corps rigide lors de l'abaissement ou se déplacer l'un par rapport à l'autre lors du pivotement.
