Adjusting Liftgate Opening Height

You can adjust the opening height of the liftgate to make it easier to reach or to avoid low-hanging ceilings or objects (for example, a garage door or light):

  1. Open the trunk, then manually lower or raise the liftgate to the desired opening height.
  2. Press and hold the button on the underside of the liftgate for three seconds until you hear a confirmation chime.

Depending on configuration (such as suspension height or wheel selection), your vehicle's liftgate can open up to approximately 8 feet (2.5 meters) high. Adjust the liftgate height to prevent it from coming into contact with low ceilings or other objects.
