Chicago Auto Show Video: 2013 Ford Escape hands-free Power Tailgate Technology Demo


CHICAGO – The 2013 Ford Escape  is all new and with the new small Crossover comes a new Ford technology from the European Ford C-Max.

The Escape’s hands-free Power Tailgate allows owners to open the car’s back hatch with a kick of the foot.

Instead of having to reach down and push a button on a key fob or manually open the tailgate (which can be an issues with a handful of groceries) the Escapes owner just kicks their foot under the back bumper. In this technology demonstration from the 2012 Chicago Auto Show a Ford executive demo states how the new tech works.
