Ficosa has developed an electronic mirror composed of cameras and displays as an alternative to the traditional exterior rearview mirrors of the vehicle. The Camera Monitor System allows the integration of ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems), such as the traffic detection function, which provides information to the driver about the vehicles around it. Ficosa has been working on electronic mirror R&D since 2007, evolving it to create the 4th generation of the system. The latest version is a prototype that is reportedly “very close” to the mass production concept; the company is already working with several clients to customize it according to their specific needs. The 4th-gen electronic mirror, which is designed to comply with the latest regulations, is composed of two cameras integrated into the sides of the car chassis, which transmit the image with very low latency to two high-resolution displays installed inside the vehicle. The cameras are equipped with wide-angle lenses, High Dynamic Range sensors of 1.3 megapixels, and 60 frames/s.

Still riding on a separate hydroformed-steel ladder frame (itself redesigned and CAE-optimized for greater strength and lower mass), the new eight-passenger SUV sheds up to 300 lb (136 kg) compared with the incumbent model. The mass reduction enabled Ford engineers to move to a powertrain format using only the 3.5-L turbocharged V6 with auto stop-start and 10R80 10-speed automatic.
