I think you'll find that setup is typical with hatchback cars. The hatch is treated like just another door, and is locked and unlocked with the doors.

Most cars with trunks do not have a manually-operated latch, when the trunk is unlocked with a key or the fob it opens.

I'm a little surprised that a power liftgate isn't offered on the higher trim levels, though. We'll probably see that in the future.

I think that blank on the key fob is probably for remote start, maybe somebody with that option can confirm.

It's also likely that the same fob is shared with other Jeep models, some of which do offer power liftgates.

The regular key fob is different from the push button/remote start dongle check out interior options when u build the renegade on jeeps site u can see them both but u cant have one option with out the other though the keyless go fob is the one you will receive if u get the remote start/push button $300 option which all limiteds I have seen have it added as a option on the window sticker which means jeep advertised it but forgot to add it in so instead they added it under options for all the prebuild base model limiteds with noting else

That's weird they couldn't put a picture on the blank button so u know its for the hatch door? also I saw the remote start key ring that one has a pic of the trunk open button next too the remote start one, the push button start and remote fob are supposed to be standard on the limited not a added option just like the hood decal on the trail hawk is suppose to be but it adds $150 to the options and is always there on all the window stickers I looked at on base trail hawks not one with out it and next year there making it standard also if u read the feature page of the limited it says remote start yet I have not seen one window sticker of a base limited with noting else added the keyless dongle $300 option is always added MSRP $28,085 is the number with no other options except the remote start fob looks like that's how there equipping the base limited no option models

the hatch button is next to the the remote start button that says 2X I'm referring to those who have the regular key you have the push button start dongle check jeeps website build a renegade and click interior accessorize you'll see two dongles the sleeker black rounded one is the $300 option the other one is how the regular standard key looks

The blank bottom is the one that opens the trunk ! Not sure what other keys are out there but this is mine it's from a North edition or latitude in the U.S.

I have the Trailhawk with Keyless Start and Keyless Entry.
The attached pic shows the fob from Jeep.com on top and my key on the bottom. No hatch popping for me..
