Showcasing the latest in GM auto technology, the all-new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV offers many available modern safety and convenience features to owners, including a customizable 17.7-inch diagonal infotainment display, Hands-Free Start, and the AutoSense Liftgate.
Today, GM Authority is taking a closer look at the AutoSense Liftgate on the Chevy Blazer EV, including the several available methods to activate and deactivate the system.
First and foremost, the AutoSense Liftgate feature on the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV provides automatic, hands-free opening of the rear liftgate simply by standing near it with the vehicle’s key fob. The Blazer EV will detect the key fob when it senses the key fob is within three feet of the vehicle’s rear end, and open the liftgate, fully replacing the “kick to open” feature found on a wide variety of GM vehicles currently in production.
The AutoSense Liftgate also provides someone with enough time to cancel the automatic liftgate opening. After three to four seconds, the Blazer emits four beeps and flashes its taillights four times, serving as a warning that the liftgate is about to open. During this time, the opening operation will be cancelled if the key fob is moved more than three feet from the Blazer’s rear end, such as by stepping away. Automatic opening can also be canceled by pressing the exterior liftgate switch or the liftgate button on the key fob.
Once the liftgate is opened, it can be closed by using either a button mounted on its inner side of the liftgate, or that of the key fob. If a particular situation calls for setting the liftgate to not open automatically, the AutoSense feature can be disabled by pressing and holding the exterior liftgate switch for approximately five seconds. The taillights flash to signal successful deactivation of the feature. Reactivating the feature is performed the same way, by holding the liftgate switch for five seconds.
The AutoSense Tailgate can also be activated or deactivated using the Blazer EV’s infotainment screen, navigating to Settings, then Vehicle, Comfort and Convenience, and then Hands Free Storage Access. The feature will also be partially deactivated if a remote key is in the vehicle at the same time as hands-free liftgate opening is attempted, or if the vehicle has been parked and unused for several days.
Range per charge for the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV varies from 279 miles to 324 miles depending on the configuration. The electric crossover is motivated by GM Ultium batteries and GM Ultium Drive motors across all its variants. The GM BEV3 platform provides structure, with production taking place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
