2012 Ford Explorer XLT EcoBoost: The Tailgate Beep Video

November 04, 2011

Every vehicle that has a remotely operated power door has a beep to accompany its closing. I prefer the Explorer's beep. Here's why...

It's noticable, but not obnoxious. This might seem like a minor point to most, but parents will understand. Why? Sleeping kids.

I find myself manually closing the tailgate on both the TSX Wagon and the Sienna because their beeps are so piercing that they wake up a sleeping baby. The Explorer, on the the other hand, makes enough noise to know that its closing but not enough to turn a peaceful kid into a screamer. See for yourself.
