Land Rover Gesture Tailgate

What Is Land Rover Gesture Tailgate?

The Land Rover Gesture Tailgate is an exclusive hardware feature that comes standard on all new Land Rover and Range Rover SUVs. This easy-to-use system detects your movement around the tailgate and will open when given a simple gesture. This means no more setting down bags to open or close the tailgate, simply kick below the bumper, and the tailgate can open or close completely hands-free.

Benefit of the Gesture Tailgate

Opening and closing the tailgate on a regular car or SUV can often be frustrating, especially when your arms are full. Whether you're loading up a cart full of groceries or unpacking for a weekend getaway, there never seems to be a convenient way to open or close the tailgate. Fortunately, the designers at Land Rover have solved this with the Gesture Tailgate feature. Now you can carry your items both to and from your vehicle, all without the hassle of latches or buttons.

How to Use Land Rover Gesture Tailgate

  1. Ensure you have your smart key with you and approach the vehicle. The Gesture Control will not operate without a nearby key for security reasons.
  2. At the rear of the vehicle, locate the gesture sensor. For reference, the sensors are located within the outer parts of the rear bumper.
  3. Using one foot, make a smooth kick and return motion beneath one of the gesture sensors. Do not perform a sliding or sweeping motion. The kick should last for 1-2 seconds.
  4. The vehicle's indicator lights will flash when your gesture is recognized, signaling a successful gesture. Stand back, and the tailgate will open.
  5. To close the tailgate, gesture again in the same way or press the automatic close button on the tailgate door itself.
