Opening and Closing

To open and close the power liftgate from inside your vehicle, all you have to do is press and hold the liftgate button located next to the steering wheel on the right. If you press the button while the door is moving, it will stop moving.

Opening with your key fob is just as easy. All you have to do is press and hold the liftgate button on your Toyota Smart Key until you hear a beep. It otherwise functions the same as the interior button. With this handy feature, you can open your trunk as you approach your vehicle so it’s ready to load when you arrive.

In order to open the liftgate manually, you need to have your Smart Key in proximity. Then, you can press the button under the Toyota emblem on the back of your vehicle, which will cause the door to open. After you’ve loaded everything in the vehicle, you can press the button located on the inside of the liftgate to close it.
