Due to launch later this summer, the 2013 Buick Verano will add a Rear Vision Camera system as a standard feature across all trim levels (pictured). Not only that, but Buick will also offer an optional safety package that includes Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert — two technologies that depend on a set of radar sensors placed in the corners of the rear bumper in hopes of assisting drivers in avoiding accidents when changing lanes or backing.
The GM Authority Take
We already knew that the Rear Vision Camera (along with Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert) would be added to the Verano for 2013, but we weren’t sure that the feature would be standard — until today. The addition of the camera and the launch of the turbo-charged model should make the Verano line rather that much more attractive to new car buyers.
But while Buick’s at it, how about adding some more standard luxury features to the Verano (leather, anyone?) and bringing the Rear Vision Camera to the Regal, as well?
