I think you will find a small hatch on the inside of the tailgate,this will allow you access to unlock the tailgate.Possibly the lock actuator has failed.

SOURCE: Rear hatch latch is stuck.
The clip that retains the release rod in the rear hatch assy. Breaks and allows the rod to fall off. You need to remove the handle from the inside of the hatch. You can pick the plugs out of the handle with a small screwdriver with a small screwdriver, and then remove the handle with a 10mm socket. After removing the handle you should be able to pull back the plastic and look inside with a flash light. Locate the rod that runs to the side that is inop. You should be able to reach in with a screw driver and pull it toward you to release it. Make sure you have already released the working side so it will open for you. Once the hatch is open, you can continue to remove the rest of the plastic trim on the hatch with a phillips head screw driver. After the trim is removed, you will need to re-attach the rod to the mechanism with the clip on the mechanism. If the clip is broken you will need to obtain a new one from a local dealer, or parts supplier. If you have to order a clip, attach a piece of wire, or string to the rod so you can release it from the inside while you are waiting for the new retainer.

Sometimes there is a safety sensor that does not allow it to open if the vehicle is in gear. This sensor may be faulty but most likely not the problem. Remove the inner panel on the back hatch and inspect the linkages from the outside handles to the releases inside the door for the glass and hatch. These have most likely came loose from the latches they operate

Release and raise the rear hatch using either the unlock button on the inside of the driver's door or a keyless remote, locate the hatch release on the inside of the hatch, then depress the hatch pins using a flat-head screwdriver, and remove the hatch panel holding clips with the trim panel remover.
Remove the rear hatch release panel with your hands, detach the release cable C-clip with the flathead screwdriver, then carefully pull the hatch wiring out with your hands.
Remove the rear hatch release with the ratchet and socket.
