What is Pro Trailer Backup Assist?
One of the primary reasons pickup trucks are so popular is their towing capability. Although pulling a trailer or a boat with competence takes some practice, towing, in general, is a simple and straightforward operation. Until it's time to park, that is.
As such, one of the trickiest maneuvers, even for long-time pickup truck owners, is navigating a trailer backward into a parking spot. Ford Motor Company offers Pro Trailer Backup Assist, an innovative system that takes much of the complexity—and anxiety—out of parking a trailer while reversing. This system is available on certain Ford and Lincoln trucks and SUVs.
