Making Towing Easier
Along with the strength of the Ford F-150, Ford added numerous features to make towing safer and easier. For instance, trailer sway control is standard on the F-150 and works with AdvanceTrac and Roll Stability Control to keep you safe even when towing a trailer. Tow/Haul Mode improves the delivery of power when needed with a heavier load.
Hill start assist helps to prevent the truck from rolling back down the hill, especially when it’s loaded with equipment and materials. Use the trailer brake controller to manage the trailer on the road. This controller is integrated into the instrument panel for better control. Pro Trailer Backup Assist makes it easier to back up when you’re towing a trailer and takes over the braking and accelerating.
Blind spot information system lets you know when it’s safe to move into another lane even when you’re pulling a trailer with trailer tow monitoring. You can also use trailer reverse guidance to see all around your truck and trailer with multiple high-definition cameras. Get steering guidance as you back up to ensure you get into the parking space or down a driveway.
