No Hands Needed For The Ford Escape Liftgate




Ford Hands-Free Liftgate Tested in Downpours, Carwashes and Against Rolling Balls, Dogs and Shopping Carts
Hands-free liftgate available on all-new Ford Escape faced extreme testing in dozens of scenarios to ensure it won’t open unprompted, and only when you want it to. Ford and its supplier, Brose, tested the sensors that control the liftgate in heavy rains, carwashes and against running dogs, rolling balls and shopping carts. Sensors are programmed to open only with leg motion in conjunction with detection of the key fob, which breaks a miniature electrical field alerting the system to respond.
