|Rod style linkage like the one

GM, Ford and Dodge full size trucks all still use rod style linkage in 2013.
| Cable systems like the one shown in the
Toyota Tundra above are
used on several of the new cars and trucks. Notice that in
place of the typical steel rod running from the knob to the latch, there
is now a sheathed cable. It's great for going around the contours
of the door, but makes door lock installation a little
tricky. The following is

More are introduced every year.
