Ford Trucks: Towing Pros

June 10th, 2013

Ford-f150June is finally here, and the summer is off to a great start. It’s the time of year for family fun! Wherever your vacation plans take you –whether camping, boating, or beyond – you’ll need reliable power to tow your summer fun gear. That’s where we come in.

The Ford F-150 is a trusted truck for towing anything from the boat to industrial gear. For even more power, there’s the Super Duty series. Garnering fans everywhere, these tough trucks are the American standard for awesome towing. While you load up for your family vacation, consider some of the great features offered on F-Series trucks aimed at making your job hauling it a little easier:

Trailer Sway Control – Let’s face it, pulling a trailer through a winding mountain pass can be challenging. That’s where the Trailer Sway Control system comes in and helps keep everything on track by selective wheel braking. It can’t break the laws of physics, but it can help provide a smoother tow while keeping the white knuckles off the driver.

Integrated Trailer Brake Controller – It’s not fun when your truck stops, but your trailer doesn’t. When you’re towing a heavy load, you need everything working together like a well-oiled hauling (and stopping) machine. The Integrated Brake Controller makes sure your electronically-attenuated trailer brakes are talking to their buddies on your truck so everybody stops at the same time.

Reverse Camera – You can only do so much with mirrors and a buddy behind you giving hand signals. Good thing there’s an optional reverse camera to help you hook up your gear.

Productivity Screen with Trailer Profiles –  Gauges are great, but they can only tell you one thing at a time. Say hello to an LCD productivity screen that can be programmed to display anything from your fuel economy to different towing applications.
