Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate (Touring and Elite)

What’s the Benefit?

The Passport’s hands-free access feature provides a high level of convenience when loading cargo.

The Feature:

Select Passport trims feature a hands-free access function for the power tailgate.

  • Owners who want to open the tailgate while their hands are full don’t even have to press a button.
  • They can simply raise their foot beneath the rear bumper while the Smart Entry remote is with them.
  • The tailgate will unlock and open automatically.
  • The hands-free access sensor is positioned in the middle of the vehicle—although an accessory is available to move the sensor a few inches to the right if a trailer hitch is installed.

Important Note: The correct foot motion is to kick directly up toward the sensor, and then quickly back down again; a side-to-side waggle, for instance, won’t trigger the sensor to open the tailgate.
