2016 Ford F-150 adds trailer backup-assist feature. Back up your trailer like a pro with Ford's new trailer assist feature coming on the 2016 F-150.
Ford has created a new feature that helps the driver back-up a trailer more easily. There is a knob that allows you to steer the trailer which takes the guess work out of backing -up a trailer.
Pro Trailer Backup Assist is part of the Ford Co-Pilot360 TM Technology collection of advanced driver-assist features, designed to give you more confidence behind the wheel. With a simple turn of a knob, this feature helps take some of the challenge out of backing up — even with a trailer.
How does the Pro-Trailer Backup Assist feature work? As you can see in the video, you use the knob to direct the trailer, while the technology of the Pro-Trailer Backup Assist actually calculates how much the steering wheel needs to be turned and does it for you, based on how much you turn the knob.
