Integrated Liftgate Trim Grab Handle



Through design and tooling innovations, the injection-molded polypropylene liftgate grab handle was molded in a single piece vs. previous 2-piece assemblies thanks to 3 large cavity-side slides in the tool.  The innovation saved 0.1 lb and $0.60 USD / vehicle.
