I just want to find out whether the Tailgate of the ML500 will kiss the ceiling of my garage when fully opened. Any one has these specs in cm or inches. If it will touch my ceiling then I will not order the Power Tailgate. The specs mention a total height of 181.5 cm for the ML500, does the Tailgate go higher when fully opened? Thanks.

According to the brochure "you can even program the power tailgate to opoen no hight than the roof, useful for low garages or when using a roof rack" The overall height of the ML500 is 71.5" including the roof rails. Hope this helps.

Sheepdog and Greg,
Thanks for your answers and the valuable info. I did not know that I can program the Maxi Height of the Tailgate, this cancels all my worries.
Unfortunately detailed brochures are not available yet in Canada, we are always 2-3 months behind. If it were not for this board I would have been still at the dark side.

Isn't a "tailgate" defined as the type of rear hatch door that opens downward? Is it proper to refer to a M-class rear hatch door as a 'tailgate'?

Does anyone care? :)

My rear hatch door will touch the underside of my opened garage door , so I attached a soft pad at the point of contact on the garage door. A power tailgate sounds like a bad idea to me.
