Ford F-150 2015
The metal protrusion stamped into the aluminum tailgate is a  mounting apparatus for the actual spoiler, which is a super subtle plastic lip that protrudes from the trailing edge of the tailgate.  Ford tells us that the spoiler wasn’t as effective when it was mounted flush with the face of the tailgate, so engineers extended it a few inches rearward and recorded cleaner wind-tunnel results.  - CAR and DRIVER & FORD Motor Company

"We spent a lot of time in the wind tunnel testing the rear wing which not only provides a reduction in lift, but it also provides a reduction in drag..." - Trevor Creed, Chrysler's Senior Vice President of Design

JSCE Aerodynamic Testing

 

          

Streamers illustrate airstream behavior as tailgate opens into a spoiler position, then closes, at speed.  Images suggest a constrained airstream inside the bed with streamers pushed down onto bed floor when gate closed, and a release of airstream out the rear of the bed & vehicle with a partial opening of the gate.

 

 


SPOILER POSITION

Computer automatically deploys tailgate into a spoiler position at highway drag inducing speeds, for best aerodynamics improving mileage, and then closes it as vehicle comes to a stop. The system may also improve trap speed and ET in the 1/4 mile. Stability can be improved in the spoiler mode through a downward force applied to the rear axle on slippery roads at speed.
