2016 Ford F-150 Advanced Technology
The 2016 Ford F-150 promises drivers many conveniences that make towing and driving easier than ever. For starters, you’ll find available the Pro Trailer Backup Assist system, which makes trailering a simple task with a knob that turns left or right to help push the trailer in the direction you to go. There’s also a cutting-edge rearview camera that alerts you to obstacles in your path. In addition, the class-exclusive 360-degree camera with split-view display uses four cameras – one in the grille, tailgate, and under each of the side mirrors – that allow you to see all sides of the truck by stitching the images together. The Dynamic Hitch Assist feature also provides a line-of-sight guide to help direct your hitch ball to the trailer receiver.
There’s also a number of driver-assistance technologies available including:
- Lane-Keeping System
- BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
- Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support
- Curve Control
- Class-exclusive* Active Park Assist
Suffice to say that these features are all expected to be featured prominently in the 2017 F-150, and auto stop-start technology will be icing on the cake!
