Smart Synchronization Comes Standard

Attaching a trailer to a truck used to require a team of at least two people to ensure the driver was synced with the trailer, but the new 2020 Ford F-150 has dynamic hitch assist with a line-of-sight guide to help direct the hitch to the trailer receiver. That means you can easily connect to a trailer without a spotter and without having to leave your truck. Start backing up, and you’ll see the guides toward the trailer through the in-dash screen. Need a closer look? There’s a zoom button at the top-left of the screen, enabling you to better see how your hitch lines up with the trailer.

After attaching the trailer, connectivity is key. How many times have you followed a truck with disconnected trailer brakes? The 2020 Ford F-150 ensures no more stopping to check the connection or worrying your trailer’s brake lights are out on the road. The factory-installed trailer brake controller keeps your trailer’s brakes synchronized with your truck, while the smart trailer tow connector alerts you to any connectivity issues, lighting issues or battery problems.

The seamlessness between truck and trailer doesn’t stop there. The 2020 Ford F-150 also offers Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, which coordinates the truck and trailer while backing up. Simply turn the Pro Trailer Backup Assist knob in the direction you want your trailer to go, and the system will take over the steering. While you’ll still have to pay attention to your side-view mirrors and keep your hand on the knob while reversing, you’ll no longer have to turn your steering wheel in the opposite direction to launch a boat or back your trailer into a work site.

Discover Smoother Drives and Safer Travels

Whether you’re plowing through the snow in the dead of winter, taking on gravel roads or driving on dry pavement, your trailer should handle the conditions of Indianapolis as well as your truck does. The 2020 Ford F-150 considers any trailer to be a true extension of itself, maintaining control via AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control (RSC®). As soon as the vehicle starts to lose control or traction, the system automatically applies selective braking to help you get back on track and control trailer sway.

While you’re making your way to your destination, the 2020 Ford F-150 also alerts you of any vehicles in your blind spot — or alongside your trailer — with the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with Trailer Coverage. Plus, you can explore trailer information on the eight-inch productivity screen, too. Check your steering angle, details on the specific trailer attached, trailer mileage, light status, setup, off-road status, and even power distribution while you’re driving.
