Front and Rear Parking Sensors (Select Vehicles)

What’s the Benefit?

This system aids drivers when parking in tight places to help prevent bumping into other objects, thereby saving on damage-repair costs.

The Feature:

Select vehicles feature front and rear parking sensors to help the driver detect objects close to the vehicle.

  • When parking, a warning beep will alert the driver of close proximity to an object.
  • The closer the vehicle gets to the object, the faster the alert will beep.
  • The color of the sensors matches the surrounding surface to enhance the overall appearance of the vehicle.

On some vehicles, the rear sensors can be switched off to prevent false alerts when towing.
