Ford is recalling more than 700,000 vehicles in North America because the backup cameras can show distorted images or suddenly go dark.
The recall covers most 2020 versions of Ford's F-Series trucks, as well as the 2020 Explorer, Mustang, Transit, Expedition, Escape, Ranger and Edge. Also included are the Lincoln Nautilus and Corsair. F-Series trucks are the top-selling vehicle in the U.S.
The move involves 620,246 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 76,566 in Canada and 4,302 in Mexico, the company said Wednesday in a news release.
The company says in documents posted by the U.S. government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that a poor electrical connection is causing the problem with rearview cameras, which intermittently display a blank or distorted image.
Ford says it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries caused by the technical issue. Dealers will replace the rear-view camera at no cost to owners. The recall is expected to start Nov. 7.
