It has been announced that the 2017 Ford Super Duty line of trucks will feature its “most advanced camera technology,” yet, utilizing up to seven cameras at once to help customers “see more angles around their truck than ever before.”
Details on the new camera system for the 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks are slim, however the company says it will be run through a new digital architecture and will make them an “industry leader in advanced camera technology and helping customers better maneuver alone and in tight spots.”
The automaker applied similar technology to the 2016 Ford F-150, which will have up to five cameras available, the most in its lineup. Four are mounted in the side mirrors, while the rear and front the vehicle each house their own camera as well, giving the driver a 360-degree view. With seven cameras, the 2017 Ford Super Duty is likely to amplify the all-seeing effect.
Rear view cameras will be standard on all of Ford’s upcoming vehicles, with the automaker introducing plans to have them on all of its North American light passenger vehicles by 2018. Also highlighting the company’s dedication to cameras is its ‘split view’ systems introduced on the 2015 Ford Edge and 2016 Explorer, which display a 180-degree view of the area in front of or behind the vehicle. It will also soon be offered on the Ford S-MAX and Galaxy in Europe and almost all nearly Ford SUVs globally by 2020.
