IS Venza pre-wired for back up camera?

Anyone know if the Venza (2011) is pre-wired for back up camera, and or power lift gate?

I have 4 cyl 2011 AWD, standard audio. I know it might involve swapping out the LCD screen for the color. But before I move forward, I was wondering if anyone knows if its pre wired for OEM. I'd like the power lift gate too, but I'm more interested in the back up camera now.

Thanks in advanced.

Short answer - NO

You can install a camera on the llftgate and run a wire back to front and use the 3.5"LCD screen. You'll need to tap the backup light wiring to initiate a camera view when in Reverse.

Ok. I thought that they might run wires just an case you want to add.

Now, when you mention the 3.5 LCD screen, you talking about external screen or the one in the dash?

Can i use the one in the dash that is not TFT screen?

I have the factory backup camera - with the LCD display that images the back camera view as well as displays the other fucntions. Not certain if the screens are different with no b/u camera

I do not know about the 2011 Venza, but in my past experience with Hondas and Toyotas, they never prewired options.
