[Music] when you’ve got an arm load of groceries or luggage the optional hands-free liftgate lets you open your vehicle without having to fumble for your keys or even the door handle you’ll find the lift gate activation zone right behind the center of the vehicle stand about 20 inches or 50 centimetres from the lift gate with the key fob in your pocket just move your foot under the bumper in a straight gentle kicking motion do not use a side-to-side or sweeping motion the hazard lights will flash and the lift gate will power open after about one second to close the gate repeat the same ticking motion the hazard lights will flash again and the gate will close after about three seconds please keep in mind if an object blocks the hands-free sensors it could disrupt activation if your vehicle has a trailer hitch for example your activation zones will be off-center to the left and right of the hitch installation of an aftermarket hitch may further inhibit system function you can turn the hands-free feature on or off in your UConnect settings this video is not intended to take the place of your owner’s manual for complete details another important safety information please see your owner’s information

I may get another Escape instead because this feature is great and I don't have a real reason for switching to Jeep. (I just like the look of the new black roof option.)

  4. I have a 2019 jeep Cherokee limited silver. This doesn't work on my car is just in specific cars or what ? I though having the limited would have it all
