I don't think our 2016 does that but I'll doublecheck - maybe I just don't pay attention to it.  


I wonder if they changed it.   I know I've had issues where the smallest obstacle would cause it not to latch.   This might fix that issue.

Just a quick update on the lift gate.  I was at the dealer today to have the molded splash guards and the rear bumper protector installed.  I tried the lift gate on three different MKX's while I was there two on the showroom floor and one of another customer.  They all work exactly as mine.  It seems that last few inches just drop and then it locks.  Seems strange, but that is the way it is. 

yep my 2016 does that.

I have an early build (September 2015) with a hatch that functions in the same manner as reported here earlier. However, I've always considered the hatch to open/close with a secure thud, not an annoying "bang". The very sturdy latching thongs that draw the hatch securely closed (and provide a thud when releasing the hatch) are reassuring of quality to me. I did, however, lubricate the latching mechanism to aid in its operation.

Cosmos 36, I like the thud  terminology better then the bang.  Let's go with that.  Thanks!
