Smart Ford F-150 Towing TechnologiesTowing machinery

When you choose the Ford F-150, you’re not just getting impressive towing capacity. Each model comes with towing assistance technologies to increase your towing efficiency, accuracy, and safety.

For starters, Trailer Sway Control is standard among all the trims to ensure that the trailer wheels remain planted on the road. Additionally, a 360-Degree Camera Package is available starting on the base trim so that you can get a bird’s-eye view of your surroundings. Being able to see all around your vehicle will help you navigate better in tight areas, especially when you have a trailer behind you.

Plus, if you want to speed up the hitching process while remaining accurate, you can add the available Pro Trailer Backup AssistTM. This handy tool provides you with a simple knob that makes turning more precise. With this feature, you can easily reverse and direct your trailer in the direction you actually want it to go.

Last but not least, the available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow Coverage adds significant safety to your ride on busy highways. Blind spots can be tricky when you’re driving a truck. Add a large trailer and you’ve got an extra layer of uncertainty when switching lanes. However, this safety feature will detect vehicles in your truck’s and your trailer’s blind spots and alert you, if it’s not safe to switch lanes.
