Which 2017 Cars Have Hands-Free Liftgates?

2017 Ford Escape

CARS.COM — A hands-free liftgate is a useful tool for those times when you don't have a hand to spare. Simply wave your foot below the rear bumper or, on models with a proximity key, approach the liftgate with the key on you to have it automatically pop open.

Hands-free liftgates and trunks are rapidly becoming available on more non-luxury models, and this list of 2017 vehicles that offer them is considerably longer than the one for the 2016 model year. That doesn't mean they come cheaply, however.

In some cases, hands-free access to the cargo area is offered only on the higher- or highest-priced versions of a particular model. In others, this feature might be part of an extra-cost option package that includes several expensive features, some of which you might not want.

Many more vehicles offer power liftgates or trunks activated by pushing a button on a key fob or inside the vehicle, but this list covers only those with hands-free operation.
