Exploring the Towing Technology on the New Ford F-150

Time was, when you needed to pull a boat trailer or other heavy load, you just needed a truck with good low-RPM torque and a durable frame. These days, Ford engineers are leveraging the latest technology to work alongside a line of powerful engines to equip the new Ford F-150 with towing capabilities that can handle more weight than ever.

Tow Smarter in Chester, CA

The new Ford F-150 comes to the Janesville, CA area ready to work and to play. Every Ford F-150 model comes standard with a smart trailer connector that will send alerts to the driver regarding any electrical issues with your trailer. AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™, also standard, helps keep your trailer and truck in sync with each other to reduce the risk of accidents.

Some of the other smart features available to Westwood, CA shoppers are

  • Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Coverage, which extends the BLIS system to your trailer to alert you if another vehicle is alongside the trailer.
  • Pro Trailer Backup Assist® which helps with those tricky reversing maneuvers, like putting your boat in the water or fitting your camper into a snug space.
  • Eight-inch productivity Screen, where all of your trailer information will be displayed.
  • Brake controller to synchronize your F-150 brakes with those of the trailer.

Tow Stronger to Reno, NV

By building the F-150 frame out of high strength steel, Ford made it stronger than ever. When they decided to make the body out of lightweight, military-grade aluminum, that made the F-150 lighter. Add in one of the six available engines—like the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost® or 3.0-liter Power Stroke® turbo diesel—to go with the standard 10-speed automatic transmission, and you've got a truck with serious towing capabilities, up to 13,200 pounds with the V6 EcoBoost®!
