Trailering Technology in the Ford F-150

The primary appeal of the F-150 is its best in class towing capacity, and with its advanced towing technologies, hauling cargo has never been easier. With this truck, you can enjoy the class exclusive pro trailer backup assist. This handy system is operated with a simple knob on your dash and makes backing up with a trailer attached easy. When you turn the knob one direction, your trailer will turn that same direction.

This incredible pickup also features a plethora of other features like the dynamic hitch assist with line of sight guide that makes it easy to hook up your trailer along with the smart trailer tow connector. Trailer sway control comes standard on all models along with roll stability control, so you can be sure you keep all four wheels on the ground at all times.

Ford F-150 Technology: Infotainment System

When you sit down in the Ford F-150, the first thing you might notice is the 8-inch LCD productivity screen. Located conveniently between the two gauges in your instrumentation panel, this screen offers all kinds of useful information such as navigation directions, truck info, fuel remaining, off-road settings and more.

In the console, you'll find a different screen altogether powered by the SYNC 3 infotainment system. This is one of the most advanced infotainment systems on the market, but it's most impressive feature is arguably SYNC Connect with FordPass. This handy feature allows you to connect your smartphone to your pickup and even lets you remotely control some aspects of your truck from your phone. You can lock and unlock your doors and even start and stop your engine.

Safety Features of the F-150

Technology isn't all fun and games, however. The F-150 safety suite is equipped with some of the best safety tech available. You'll have access to forward collision mitigation systems that will detect any imminent collisions and alert you. It can even apply the brakes for you if you're not quick enough to respond. There's also a blind spot information system that covers not only your truck's blind spot but your trailer's as well.
