Extending Mirrors

Trailer tow mirrors can extend out for better visibility when towing a trailer.

Manual Extend : If equipped, grasp the mirror housing firmly and pull back in one motion, arching slightly toward the rear of the vehicle.

To return the mirror to its original position, reverse the motion.

Power Extend : If equipped, press the power extend button to fully extend the mirror. Press again to retract.

Resetting the Power Extend Mirrors

Reset the power extend mirrors if:

  • The mirrors are accidentally obstructed while extending/retracting.
  • The mirrors are accidentally manually extended/retracted.
  • The mirrors vibrate at normal driving speeds.

If a popping noise from the mirror is heard, this sound is normal as the manual detents are aligning after a manual extend/retract operation has occurred.

Auxiliary Cargo Mirror Lamps

If equipped, cargo mirror lamps face rearward to provide more light on the sides of the vehicle, if needed. See Exterior Cargo Lamps.

Advanced Trailering Vision System Side Cameras

If equipped, the Advanced Trailering Vision System side cameras are on the bottom of the outside mirrors. See “Surround Vision (360 Degrees)” under Assistance Systems for Parking or Backing.

    Blind Spot Mirrors

    If equipped, there is a small convex mirror built into the upper and outer corner of the driver outside mirror. It can show objects that may be in the vehicle's blind zone.

    Driving with the Blind Spot Mirror

    Actual Mirror View

    When the approaching vehicle is a long distance away, the image in the main mirror is small and near the inboard edge of the mirror. As the vehicle gets closer, the image in the main mirror gets larger and moves outboard. As the vehicle enters the blind zone, the image transitions from the main mirror to the blind spot mirror. When the vehicle is in the blind zone, the image only appears in the blind spot mirror.
