Ford has announced the 2016 F-150 will be offered with a trick new feature called Pro Trailer Backup Assist.

Designed to make backing up a trailer easier, the Pro Trailer Backup Assist system eliminates the hassle of turning the front wheels in the opposite direction of where the customer wants the trailer to go.  In order to do this, the system leverages the truck's electric power steering system so drivers simply have to turn a control knob to steer the trailer where they want it to go.

According to Ford Truck Marketing Manager Doug Scott, “Pro Trailer Backup Assist is a smart solution to save time and increase productivity for our customers. Instead of struggling to back up their trailer, they can spend more time on the job or enjoying the lake.”
