Tailgate with Lift-Up Glass Hatch
The Pilot's tailgate offers convenient access to its spacious cargo compartment. Gas-pressurized struts assist the opening process, while a sturdy handle built into the inner panel makes closing the tailgate easier. The rear glass lifts up independently of the tailgate, which allows for easy access to the cargo area without having to open the entire tailgate.
