What Is the Ford Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with Trailer Coverage and Cross-Traffic Alert?*

How it works

BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert helps you change lanes or back out of a parking space with confidence. BLIS can alert you when a vehicle enters the blind spot zone. Cross-Traffic Alert warns of traffic approaching from the sides when the vehicle is in Reverse (R), such as slowly backing out of a parking space or driveway.

If your truck is equipped with Trailer Coverage, it provides coverage for not only the truck you are driving but also the conventional trailer you are towing. The system supports conventional trailers only and automatically turns off if you select a fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailer. Trailer dimensions up to 9 feet wide (measured at the trailer front) and up to 33 feet long can be input into the system.
