Buick to make backup cameras standard on all 2015 models

With the U.S. government forcing automakers to offer backup cameras as standard equipment in all new vehicles weighing less than 10,000 pounds by 2018, Buick announced that each of its 2015 models will come standard with a rearview camera.

“Rear backup cameras have become like power windows and air conditioning,” said Karl Brauer, senior analyst for Kelley Blue Book. “While they're not standard on every car, yet, it's rare to operate a new vehicle without them. The increased confidence these cameras provide make them a must-have feature.”

Every 2015 Buick model will also be available with active safety technologies such as Forward Collision Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
