Crossovers/SUVs: Honda CR-V

Soon after Honda added a standard rearview camera to the CR-V for the 2014 model year, the automaker upgraded the crossover with a bunch more goodies, a new engine, a CVT, and a redesigned look for the 2015 model year. Some of the new features now standard include a center console armrest, sliding sunvisors, and rear console ventilation ducts, bringing even more value to the base LX trim that starts at $24,325.

The EX trim is the most basic way to get a Crosstour, and for $28,410 it comes with other niceties such as a power moonroof, automatic halogen headlights, foglights, power windows, and a power driver's seat.

The base Explorer, which starts at $31,595, also comes standard with a 3.5-liter V-6, though the more efficient 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine is available for $995 more.

Crossovers/SUVs: Ford Expedition

2015 Ford Expedition© Provided by MotorTrend 2015 Ford Expedition If you have trouble backing the Explorer up, you'll have even more difficulty with the Expedition in reverse. Thankfully, you won't have to fork out extra money for a standard rearview camera in the $45,780 XLT model, which also comes with sensors in the bumper that warn you if you're backing up too close to an object. For a vehicle as big as the Expedition, these features are a must.

2015 Chevrolet Trax Cockpit© Provided by MotorTrend 2015 Chevrolet Trax Cockpit The Trax doesn't have a lot of junk in the trunk, but the subcompact CUV's standard rearview camera works as an extra set of eyes nonetheless so that drivers won't have to break a sweat trying to back up in crowded parking lots. The Trax starts at $20,995 for the LS trim and comes with the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, and a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot.

Crossovers/SUVs: Chevrolet Traverse

It's easy to forget the eight-passenger Traverse is as big as it is because it doesn't drive that way, so it's good that the base LS model's standard 6.5-inch touchscreen doubles as a rearview camera when the SUV is put into reverse. The LS Traverse starts at $31,870 and comes with Bluetooth connectivity, 17-inch steel wheels, a 3.6-liter V-6, and a six-speed automatic engine.

2015 Chevrolet Tahoe: 2015 Chevrolet Trax LTZ Front Three Quarter In Motion 2© Provided by MotorTrend 2015 Chevrolet Trax LTZ Front Three Quarter In Motion 2 It can be bit difficult trying to back up in the big and boxy Tahoe, but Chevrolet has you covered with a rearview camera that comes in the entry-level LS trim, which costs $47,495. Because the SUV is large, it only makes sense the rearview camera is displayed on a big 8.0-inch touchscreen for extra visibility.

Crossovers/SUVs: Chevrolet Suburban

2015 Chevrolet Suburban© Provided by MotorTrend 2015 Chevrolet Suburban For $50,195, the nine-passenger Suburban had better come standard with a rearview camera. If any vehicle needs it, it's the Suburban because its 204-inch-long body can be hard to maneuver in cramped mall parking lots. For all-around protection, the Suburban LS is available with a $595 Driver Alert package that includes forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and a safety alert system.

2014 Toyota Highlander© Provided by MotorTrend 2014 Toyota Highlander Backing up while trying to look over six heads can be pretty difficult, which is probably why Toyota has a rearview camera as standard equipment in the base LE Highlander, which starts at $30,550. That model comes with a 2.7-liter I-4 that sends 185 hp to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. Other features you'll find on the LE include heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators and 18-inch wheels.
