What is the Ford Rear View Camera?

Ford's popular Rear View Camera displays obstructions on a screen in the instrument cluster or rear view mirror.

How does it work?

The tailgate-mounted Ford Rear View Camerashows objects that would otherwise be hidden on a large 7-inch colour display or within the rear view mirror depending on the vehicle chosen. The system is activated whenever reverse gear is engaged and the camera’s wide-angle view clearly shows obstructions within its field of vision such as low obstacles, animals or even children.

The camera system is also enhanced by special graphics that are superimposed onto the camera image. Two yellow lines indicate the total width of the vehicle including mirrors and a third line marks the vehicle’s centre line to assist hooking up with a caravan or trailer. The lines move to show the path of the vehicle based on the current steering angle.
