I previously had a 2017 RAM 1500 with the 8.4 Display screen, and I currently have a Jeep Gladiator with the 8.4 Dispalay screen.
The brilliance of the backup camera were the same and what you would expect.
I bought my wife a 2020 Challenger with the 8.4 Display screen, and right away noticed how dark it was.
The Service manage saw it and told me to bring it by one day and he might be able to fix it via software.
After about thirty minutes he came out and said both he and the senior mechanic couldn't find any setting to change it.
Another brand spanky new Challenger was just rolling off the truck, so he waved it over so we could take a look at that ones screen.
That Challenger had the smaller screen, but when vieiwing the backup camera it was similarly dark.
His thoughts were, this is a problem that may exist on all the Challenger models from 2020-2021, and would take a number of complaints to FCA to get them to issue a TSB to get it addressed. Has anyone ever heard of this, or experienced this on your car?
I am thinking if you don't have a properly working backup camera screen to compare it to, you won't know that it is too dark.
Thanks for any insights,
P.S. If desired, I can take pictures of the Jeep and the Challenger screens and post them here for a side by side comparison. You may fiund your screen is also similarly dark.

Mine is also dark (‘20 SP) and the dealer will be looking at it soon. I’m at approximately 3000 miles on it and from new I suspected something is wrong with the display. It’s not only dark, the resolution seems to be weaker than it should be.

Looks like standard auto correct video. That looks like the sun is near the horizon behind the car, and the exposure is autocorrecting for all of the bright light hitting it and reducing the exposure.
Only an automatic HDR video system would improve that.

Here's my 2020 picture. Parking lines are in the air because I swapped my ugly Performance Spoiler for a Hellcat version.
