The trunk lid is another term that refers to the deck lid of the vehicle. Deck lid panels are commonly decorated in the automotive community.
Moreover, deck lids only refer to the upper part of the trunk. The part of the deck lid that holds the latch, is referred to the deck lid panel. The panel generally holds the vehicles emblem and is displayed as a different design from the rest of the trunk body. Some deck lid panels include the use of glossier paints or emblem deletes. The price range on an aftermarket deck lid panel ranges depending on the type of vehicle.
Hinges allow the lid to be raised. Devices such as a manually positioned prop rod can keep the panel up in the open position. Counterbalancing torsion or other spring(s) can also use to help elevate and hold open the trunk lid. On cars with their trunk in the rear, lids sometimes incorporate a center mounted third brake light. A rear lid may also have a decorative air spoiler. On many modern cars, the trunk lids can be unlocked with the car's key fob.
