Yes, the models not factory equipped with side rails that have the four black mounting pads on the roof:
These models use cross bars that attach directly to the black mounts.
The models with factory installed side rails use a different cross bar that bolts to the side rails, and not to the roof pads directly.
I also don't believe factory side rails are available for models not originally equipped with them. There probably will be aftermarket rails available at some point.
