Backing up a trailer can be a daunting task, even for experienced drivers. Ford's innovative Pro Trailer Backup Assist takes the stress out of this process. This feature allows drivers to easily and precisely control the direction of a trailer while in reverse.

By simply turning a knob in the desired direction, the F-150's Pro Trailer Backup Assist performs the necessary steering adjustments.

360-Degree Camera System

The F-150 acknowledges that maneuvering a large truck can be challenging, and makes it easier with its 360-degree camera system.

This advanced technology provides drivers with a complete view of the truck's surroundings, effectively eliminating blind spots and making parking and navigating tight spaces much easier.

Changing lanes or merging onto highways has never been safer with the F-150’s Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®).

This feature constantly monitors your blind spots and alerts you when there’s vehicles in those areas. When a vehicle enters your blind spot, the system sends a visual alert in your side mirrors, reducing the risk of side-impact collisions.

Lane-Keeping System

Long journeys become more secure with the F-150's Lane-Keeping System, an active safety feature designed to help you stay within your lane.

This system includes advanced sensors to detect when the vehicle is unintentionally leaving the lane it is in, such as drifting due to fatigue or distraction.

When this is detected, the Lane-Keeping System provides gentle, corrective steering assistance to guide the truck back into its lane, keeping you on the right track and reducing the likelihood of unintentional lane drift, causing an accident.
