CES 2016 Innovation Awards

The CES Innovation Awards are judged by a distinguished panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers, and members of the trade media. The awards honor exceptional design and engineering in pioneering consumer electronics across 27 product categories, including automotive engineering. There were a number of competitors in the Vehicle Intelligence category, but Ford dominated. This was driven home byRaj Nair, Ford Group Vice President Global Product Development and Chief Technical Officer, who said, “Pro Trailer Backup Assist is another example of Ford leveraging new technology to make every-day driving tasks easier.”

Ford has always been a truck leader and pioneer when it comes to towing innovation, and the automaker has once again proven that it’s at the top with this segment-first technology.

The Pro Trailer Backup Assist system makes backing up a trailer stress-free for a novice or a pro thanks to intuitive and easy controls. 2016 Ford F-150 trucks that are equipped with Pro Trailer Backup Assist have a knob that drivers can rotate right or left to make the trailer go in the direction you want it to go. There’s also an advanced rearview camera that alerts you to obstacles in your path, so you can avoid collisions while reversing with the trailer.
