Brandmotion announced it is first to market with a rear vision upgrade kit for the 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra. The new kit allows truck buyers to get a rear view camera in a replacement mirror so they don’t lose any factory features. o experience the added safety of an enhanced rear view without the loss of factory features.
The model number 9002-1010 fits in the Silverado and Sierra tailgate bezel and handle assembly found on the 2014 version in select trim packages. While rear vision comes standard on the LTZ, SLT and SLE versions, it is only optional on LT trim packages, and not available from the factory on 1WT, 2WT and base models.
The mirror in Brandmotion’s new kit replaces the factory OnStar-equipped mirror, retaining buttons and functionality while adding a 3.5-inch TFT color monitor that displays from behind the mirror surface when the truck is in reverse gear. Its factory-style harness plugs directly into the existing connectors, eliminating the need for cutting wires.
In the rear of the truck, the tailgate bezel and handle are replaced with an identical assembly, save for the embedded Panasonic camera that provides an OEM-approved, wide-angle view to detect obstacles and assist in towing operations.
“We are pleased to be the first to offer a rear vision solution to the aftermarket for the 2014 Silverado and Sierra,” said Jeff Varick, president of Brandmotion and former engineer at General Motors. “We feel they will sell extremely well, and having the ability to improve safety and convenience features after the purchase will make owning the popular trucks that much more fulfilling.”
With an MSRP of $699, the 9002-1010 kit will be available this month. For more information visit www.brandmotion.com,
