SMART TOWING FEATURES

F-150 provides trailer sway control as a feature of the AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control) system. Standard as well is a smart trailer tow connector that alerts to connectivity issues, lighting and battery problems. And you have these available features that make the task of towing easier:

  • Pro Trailer Backup Assist — synchronize truck and trailer while backing up*
  • Dynamic hitch assist with line-of-sight guide — direct the hitch to the trailer receiver
  • 8-inch productivity screen — trailer information
  • Factory-installed trailer brake controller — synchronize truck and trailer brakes
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Trailer Coverage* — alerts when a vehicle is in your blind spot or alongside the trailer
*Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s attention, judgment and need to control the vehicle.

BEST-IN-CLASS PAYLOAD

Reducing weight is an effective way to increase payload. And that’s a huge benefit of the F-150 body and bed built of lightweight, high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy. What results is an available best-in-class* payload rating in F-150 models powered by the legendary Ford 5.0L V8. The 5.0L features the Ford port-fuel and direct-injection (PFDI) system with two injectors per cylinder — one in the air intake port, another inside the cylinder — to improve power and efficiency. Impressive power ratings are 395 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.

CLASS-EXCLUSIVE PRO TRAILER BACKUP ASSIST

Backing up a trailer involves navigating two vehicles at the same time — the truck going one way and the trailer going in the opposite direction. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro at this often tricky maneuver, class-exclusive* available Pro Trailer Backup Assist makes it as easy as turning a knob. Simply rotate the knob left or right in the direction you want the trailer to go.** F-150 is the first pickup to offer this breakthrough feature.
*Class is Full-Size Pickups under 8,500 lbs. GVWR.
**Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s attention, judgment and need to control the vehicle.

IN-CAB STORAGE AND FULLY FLAT LOAD FLOOR

The F-150 provides lots of places to store the assortment of things you carry inside the cab. Stow items in the door-trim panel bins and the glove box. There’s space for a laptop inside the available flow-through center console. And the SuperCab and SuperCrew® models feature a fully flat rear load floor with under-seat storage.

LED LIGHTING

Optional LED lighting is available virtually anywhere you need it. Quad-beam LED headlamps provide bright, efficient and long-lasting illumination. LED side-mirror spotlights illuminate any task at hand from just about any angle after the sun has set. LED box lighting helps you work at night and lets you see under a tonneau cover. LED trailer hitch light on the tailgate handle is included with the trailer tow packages and helps with hitching up to a trailer at night.
