Which Cars Have Backup Cameras for 2020?

Which Cars Have Backup Cameras for 2020?

The federal government has required backup cameras on new vehicles since the 2019 model year, so every passenger vehicle for 2020 has this safety feature standard. Used-car shoppers should find backup cameras widely available on most late-model examples, though availability will vary by brand and price — especially if you go back more than a few model years.Get more news about Reverse Cameras,you can vist our website!

After multiple delays on an initial proposal requiring cameras by the 2014 model year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration formalized rules the same year that would require all cars to have backup cameras by the 2019 model year. The current rule applies to vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of up to 10,000 pounds; that’s a typical three-quarter-ton pickup truck. Thus, all but shoppers seeking out heavy-duty commercial vehicles should find a backup camera standard in their prospective new car.

Such cameras must conform to federal guidelines stipulating when the camera view must operate and what it must show. (Don’t confuse backup cameras with rearview cameras, which, strictly speaking, can show the view out back even when you’re moving forward.) Myriad variances exist beyond that, and their sum total can make the difference between a highly useful backup camera and one that merely satisfies the letter of the law.
In almost all cases, the view from a backup camera manifests on a car’s primary dashboard screen — typically a 7- or 8-inch unit in new vehicles, though larger displays are proliferating among tech-heavy models. Go back a few years, and screens were far smaller. In the 2000s and 2010s, backup cameras frequently displayed on 4- or 5-inch screens, or even smaller screens in a corner of the center rearview mirror. Some base models today still employ the smaller camera displays, and the Nissan 370Z still relies on a microsized rearview-mirror display. And a handful of cars, both old and new, display the camera view within the gauges, a location your steering wheel may partially block depending on adjustment and angle.

Early backup cameras simply showed the view out back, but automakers soon superimposed guidelines to project your path of travel and illustrate proximity to objects in the field of view. Such guidelines proliferated among backup cameras in the 2010s, with the most advanced systems adding dynamic guidelines that moved in real time with the angle of the steering wheel. Almost all backup-camera displays today have at least static guidelines, with dynamic lines offered among many — and possibly even most — examples.

Although the straight-back view remains most common, many camera systems have alternate viewing modes courtesy of fish-eyed lenses, zooming controls or additional cameras. Such modes range from straight-down bumper angles to help hook up a trailer to 360-degree bird’s-eye views to aid maneuvers in tight quarters. Some vehicles even patch together multiple camera views to simulate a three-dimensional rotation around your car.
