As for backing up, there is the standard ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera and the available ParkSense Rear Park Assist System which helps to increase the visibility of what’s behind the driver when they are backing up. The advanced technology comes with sophisticated software that is uniquely built-in to help keep the driver in control and informed on what is happening, and it also comes with sensors.
There is the three-piece modular front fascia, and the rear fascia is built from constructed durable thermoplastic composite panels. They can be easily removed for simple serviceability, which can enhance the vehicle’s appeal due to the low cost to repair. The low-mounted side panels help protect the side of the van from dings, and there are raised headlamps and taillamps that move the vehicle lights away from standard impact zones.
