New Pro Trailer Backup Assist Option on 2016 Ford F-150
How Does Ford Pro Trailer Backup Assist Work?
Most pickup truck drivers haul trailers frequently. Trucks like the Ford F-150 offer great performance and can haul trailers with ease. However, backing up trailers has always posed a major challenge for drivers, until now. Ford has designed a new Pro Trailer Backup Assist option on the 2016 Ford F-150. We have had a lot of customers coming into our dealership who are very excited about this new technology. Therefore, we have decided to take some time out to answer the question, how does Ford Pro Trailer Backup Assist work?
The Ford Pro Trailer Backup Assist feature can help to take the driver frustration out of backing up. This all-new feature works by allowing the driver to steer the trailer with ease by simply using a small control knob while the truck steers its wheels and automatically limits its speed. Turning the knob indicates how much the system should turn the trailer, so it makes the whole process very simple. The technology will automatically steer the truck the desired amount for you.
This new technology results in less time required to back up a trailer, and improved confidence while you are doing it. It will eliminate all of your maneuvering mistakes, making it fast and easy to backup your trailer.
According to Doug Scott, Ford Truck Group Marketing Manager, Doug Scott, “Pro Trailer Backup Assist is a smart solution to save time and increase productivity for our customers. Instead of struggling to back up their trailer, they can spend more time on the job or enjoying the lake.”
New features like the Pro Trailer Backup Assist took an already great F-150 and made it even better for the new 2016 model year.
