Warning

Make sure there is no one in the way of the power tailgate as it is opening and closing, and keep hands away from the tailgate hinges when in use. You or others could be injured if caught in the path of the power tailgate or tailgate hinges.

Caution

To avoid damage to the tailgate, make sure the area behind the tailgate is clear before opening it.

In the case of a dead battery, the tailgate can be opened manually. Contact your dealer or Roadside Assistance.

If equipped, to lock or unlock the tailgate, use the RKE transmitter or the key. See Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System Operation (Key Access) or Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System Operation (Keyless Access).

The vehicle must be in P (Park).

To open the tailgate:

  • Press twice quickly on the RKE transmitter until the tailgate moves.

  • Press on the center stack.

  • Press the touch pad on the tailgate handle after unlocking all doors. Use the top of the tailgate to pull against if assistance is required. If equipped with Keyless Access, a locked tailgate can be opened if the RKE transmitter is within 1 m (3 ft).

To close the tailgate, firmly push it upward until it latches. Pull it back to be sure it is latched securely.

    Blind Spot Mirrors

    If equipped, there is a small convex mirror built into the upper and outer corner of the driver outside mirror. It can show objects that may be in the vehicle's blind zone.

    Driving with the Blind Spot Mirror

    Actual Mirror View

    When the approaching vehicle is a long distance away, the image in the main mirror is small and near the inboard edge of the mirror. As the vehicle gets closer, the image in the main mirror gets larger and moves outboard. As the vehicle enters the blind zone, the image transitions from the main mirror to the blind spot mirror. When the vehicle is in the blind zone, the image only appears in the blind spot mirror.
