Whether you’re loading your pickup truck with cargo or packing for a road trip, a tailgate is an essential tool. Necessary for both work and play. As Ford continues to push for forward-thinking technology in its latest vehicles, its fleet of pickup trucks makes it even easier for drivers to operate the tailgate with their hands full. And it’s all thanks to the Ford Remote Tailgate. You can find this incredible technology on many of
our new Ford models for sale at our Aztec area Ford dealer and can learn more about it’s standard and available features below!
The Ford Remote Tailgate is an industry-first. And, it’s an undoubtedly practical solution if your hands are full and you need to load items into your truck bed. With the simple press of a button, drivers can lock, unlock, and automatically lower the tailgate. Thanks to a dampening technology that reduces the speed at which the tailgate lowers there’s no risk of the tailgate slamming down. To close the tailgate, drivers need only to push it up with both hands and can use the key fob to lock it.
Some of our available models, like the 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty, include additional features that make loading and unloading items a breeze. The available Tailgate Step with Tailgate Assist features a step and handle stowed inside the tailgate to help drivers easily access all of the truck bed. An available LED light in the tailgate release handle and bed of the truck directs light onto the trailer hitch, making nighttime hookups quick and easy.
