ABOUT FRONT AND REAR PARK ASSIST
Available Front and Rear Park Assist† provides alerts of nearby detected vehicles and objects in front of or behind your vehicle to help you park and avoid collisions.
Front and Rear Park Assist Can Help Warn You to Help Avoid Collisions During Low-Speed Parking
Front and Rear Park Assist uses multiple ultrasonic sensors located on your front and rear bumpers.
When you’re driving at low speeds, the sensors may detect objects up to 6 feet behind your vehicle and up to 4 feet in front of your vehicle.
You can turn this feature on and off using the Rear Park Assist System control or, in some vehicles, through the vehicle Settings menu. On some vehicles, you’ll turn the Park Assist system on and off with a button on your infotainment system†. On these vehicles, you can turn the system on and off even when your vehicle is in REVERSE.
When You Get Closer to an Object, You Hear Different Alerts
When an object is detected, you'll hear low-pitched beeps or, if your vehicle is equipped with the Safety Alert Seat, you'll feel pulses on both sides of the seat (depending on your selected Alert Type menu option). The closer your vehicle is to a detected object, you'll hear more beeps or feel more Safety Alert Seat pulses.
When an object is within 2 feet of your rear bumper, you’ll hear five repeating low-pitched beeps from your rear speakers, or if your vehicle is equipped with the Safety Alert Seat, it pulses five times on both sides.
When an object is within 1 foot of your front or rear bumper, you’ll hear a continuous low-pitched tone, or, if your vehicle is equipped with the Safety Alert Seat, the seat will pulse five times on both sides.
Front and Rear Park Assist Also Shows Alerts on Your Infotainment Display
As your vehicle gets closer to a detected object behind you, you will also see caution triangles that change from yellow to amber to red on the Rear Vision Camera display.
On some vehicles, the Park Assist display will also display guidelines that show you the path of your vehicle. On these vehicles, you will only receive alerts of detected objects in your vehicle's path.
Things to Remember When Using Front and Rear Park Assist
Front and Rear Park Assist is not designed to detect all children, pedestrians, bicyclists, animals or objects below the bumper.
You should remember to always check the area around the vehicle before backing up and make sure the ultrasonic Park Assist sensors are clean as well. Locations of these sensors vary by vehicle, so consult your vehicle's Owner’s Manual to see where they’re located. They look like small circular indentations on the front and rear bumpers.
Safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather, and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle’s owner’s manual for more important feature limitations and information.
