Brandmotion Introduces 5 Rear Vision Packages to Tackle New Models

Ann Arbor, Michigan – Brandmotion, leading supplier of Authentic OEM™ rear vision systems to the aftermarket, has announced it is adding a new series of rear vision packages to its full line of vehicle safety systems. The 8500 series consists of five new models to fit newer vehicles, with one model designed for vehicles equipped with the tri-lobe mirror mount, such as the 2013 Ford Escape and Dodge Journey.

The 8500 series incorporates the OEM-validated Panasonic recessed-lip camera, which offers a wide-angled view behind the vehicle. Installed on many new cars and trucks during production, the camera utilizes Charge Coupled Device (CCD) technology to provide superior illumination, white balance and sharpness. The camera mounts to an included base that has been re-engineered to minimize drilling during installation while providing a factory installed look and finish.

Each Brandmotion kit includes the necessary wiring harnesses and accessories to ensure a professional installation, along with a replacement mirror featuring a 3.5-inch TFT color display that turns on when the vehicle is put into reverse gear and disappears behind the mirror surface while driving. The mirrors all feature auto dimming technology to protect the driver from night blindness due to approaching high-beam lights and each fits different applications to bring new safety features to the driving experience:

  • The 9002-8524 and 9002-8521 ($587.95 MSRP) provide a direct replacement for most standard mirrors.
  • The 9002-8521 is compatible with vehicles that include auto-dimming side mirrors, and will dim in concert when connected.
  • The 9002-8522 ($649.95 MSRP) and 9002-8523 ($699 MSRP) replace OnStar-equipped mirrors in vehicles equipped with 16-pin and 10-pin mirror connectors, respectively.
  • The 9002-8525 ($629.95 MSRP) features an exclusive Slimline design that is specially built to fit the tri-lobe mirror mount found on a select number of vehicles including the 2013 Ford Escape and Dodge Journey.

“Every year we research new vehicle makes and models to determine which might be missing those all-important safety features, and we figure out how to build price-competitive solutions that integrate seamlessly,” said Brandmotion President Jeff Varick. “In addition, we align our company with quality installation centers to ensure that the end user experiences our products as if they came with the vehicle from the factory floor.”
