Make a single, forward kicking motion with your foot under the center of the rear bumper, then take a step back without touching the bumper. A sensor detects the motion and opens or closes the tailgate. You'll hear a brief beep to indicate that it worked. One of the car's keys must be within range (about one meter/three feet) behind the vehicle, even if the vehicle is already unlocked.*
- * Please note that due to the global shortage of semiconductors from suppliers, the hands-free tailgate foot sensor may not be available on your vehicle at delivery, but it can be retrofitted free of charge at a later date.
