Multimatic and a Truckload of Patents



MARKHAM, Ontario (May 28, 2014) – Ford reports that the new F-150 features over 100 new developments that are either patented, or have patents pending – more, in fact, than any other truck in the company’s long history.

TailgateStepLabelAmong these innovations, the new-generation tailgate step should prove as popular with buyers as did the original, which was co-developed and jointly patented by Ford and Multimatic for MY2008. The F-series’ latest version further refines the step’s integration into the tailgate, and streamlines its deployment into a single drop-down motion.
