Perhaps an engineer on the Range Rover or the G-Wagens' design team will say "What we need is a camera under the front bumper for each front tyre to help you accurately steer through obstacles on inclines and declines. Yeah, just use more reversing cameras. The multiple screens on the dash will look so cool."
