What’s the Benefit?
The power tailgate feature provides convenient operation for a diverse group of CR-V Hybrid buyers, and its stop-and-hold and programmable-height features allow a high level of customization.
CR-V Hybrid EX-L and Touring trims include a power tailgate.
It can be operated remotely with the key fob from up to 50 feet away, or by pushing a button from the driver’s seat.
An electric motor will raise and lower the tailgate.
This feature is especially convenient when the owner is carrying items back to the vehicle, doesn’t have a hand free to open the tailgate and would prefer not to place items on the pavement.
When closing, small-statured owners will not have to worry about reaching for the handle, and older owners need not worry about flexibility or strength.
The driver can also close the tailgate using the button to the left of the steering column or a button on the tailgate itself.
The stop-and-hold function allows you to push the tailgate switch while it’s opening so the tailgate will stop immediately—such as to avoid hitting a wall behind the vehicle.
The programmable-height function is designed to limit how high the tailgate opens with every use; here’s how it works:
With the tailgate open, simply pull the tailgate down to the desired height; it will hold its position.
Then push and hold the tailgate switch until it beeps twice; now the new opening height has been programmed.
