2012 Ford C-MAX
INDUSTRY-FIRST, HANDS-FREE LIFTGATE FROM FORD OFFERS REAL KICK FOR
CUSTOMERS WITH PACKAGES
- Ford introduces an industry-first hands-free liftgate that allows
customers to quickly and easily unlock and open the rear hatch even when
their hands are full
- With the key fob in the owner's possession, a gentle leg motion below the
center of the rear bumper activates sensors that cue the system to unlock
and raise the rear liftgate
- The hands-free liftgate will debut in the seven-passenger C-MAX
crossover, being shown at the 2011 North American International Auto Show
DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 20, 2010 -- Gesture or motion technology employed in
today's video game systems is coming to the new seven-passenger Ford C-MAX
crossover, designed with families in mind.
"In the new C-MAX, customers no longer need to set their packages down or
fumble to locate their keys to open the rear hatch, especially when their
hands are full," said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president, Global Product
Development. "The hands-free liftgate allows them to easily and quickly
open the cargo area with one simple leg motion."
The hands-free liftgate debuts on the Ford C-MAX, which is being shown at
the 2011 North American International Auto Show. The C-MAX can seat up to
seven and is a popular model in Europe because of its clever combination of
style, versatility and fuel efficiency.
Enabled by Intelligent Access with push-button start
The hands-free liftgate is enabled by Intelligent Access with push-button
start. This technology allows customers to unlock and start their vehicles
without ever having to take out the key. When the key fob is in their
possession -- kept in a pocket, coat, purse or briefcase -- a simple pull
on the door handle unlocks the vehicle. Once inside the vehicle, the driver
simply holds down the brake pedal and presses the power button to start the
In conjunction with the Intelligent Access system, there are two sensors
located in the rear bumper. One detects the shin and the other detects the
leg motion to enable the hands-free liftgate. The customer simply needs to
possess the Intelligent Access key fob and gently wave his or her foot
under the bumper to operate the feature.
Additionally, the liftgate height can be programmed or adjusted manually to
meet specific customer needs.
"We recognize that the C-MAX customer usually has his or her hands full.
Whether carrying packages while holding a young child's hand or carrying
bags full of groceries, the hands-free liftgate will make their lives a
whole lot easier," said Wendy King, C-MAX brand manager.
The combination of the system detecting the key fob and leg motion is
necessary to unlock and open the liftgate and safeguards against any
"Animals running under the car, hitting a bump on the road or similar
unintended gestures won't trigger the liftgate to open," said Michael
Becker, systems engineer. "This is one smart feature."
As with other technology Ford has developed, the hands-free liftgate is a
customer-focused solution, like SYNC® and EcoBoost™, which can be implemented in other
vehicles around the globe.
"The arrival of the hands-free liftgate on the new C-MAX is just the
beginning for this technology," said Kuzak. "Customers soon will see this
same technology roll out across our broader portfolio of vehicles."
