How It Works
Rear Vision uses a rear-looking camera located in the back of your vehicle at or near its centerline.
The camera is designed to help provide a rear view in addition to what you see in your mirrors. It may be particularly helpful for parking, seeing blind spots and spotting pavement markings, other vehicles, curbs, and surroundings in general.
The images may be farther away or closer than the camera makes them appear.
The Rear Camera View will display when your vehicle is in REVERSE.
You will also see the Rear Camera View for a short time after you shift from REVERSE to NEUTRAL or a FORWARD gear.
- The image goes away automatically when:
- You shift out of REVERSE into PARK
- Your vehicle picks up speed
- You press the Home button on the infotainment display
- The image may include detection displays for Rear Park Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (if equipped)
- The high-definition camera also displays Hitch View (if equipped)
- When enabled, guideline(s) will appear over the image on the screen as you’re backing up. As you steer the vehicle, the guideline(s) will adjust to help you understand the vehicle’s path or, on some models, help you line up a trailer hitch if your vehicle has available Hitch Guidance
- Check your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for a diagram that shows the location of the feature’s camera and how to clean it. This can be found in the “Driver Assistance Systems” section of the Owner’s Manual

Dirt, rain or snow may accumulate on the lens of the Rear Vision Camera. This can be wiped off with a soft cloth.
Depending on the vehicle, the camera can usually be found at the center of the rear of the vehicle, often near the trunk release. The vehicle’s Owner’s Manual will provide the exact location.
Not always. You should always check for the presence of small children or pedestrians behind your vehicle before shifting into REVERSE. The area Rear Vision Camera displays is limited and small children or pedestrians that are too close to either corner of the bumper or under the bumper, or too far left or right, will not display.
No, unless your vehicle is also equipped with Rear Park Assist or Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
