Auto Guide: 2016 Ford F-150 adds trailer backup assist

From the bloggers at Auto Guide.

Ford is introducing a new way for drivers of the 2016 F-150 to backup a trailer.

Ford’s new Pro Trailer Backup Assist is operated using a knob in the dash which controls the direction of the trailer, thus removing the need for the driver to use the steering wheel. When activated, the truck’s speed and steering are controlled automatically while the driver uses the knob to direct the trailer.

Backing up a trailer can be a tricky process, as you must steer the vehicle in the opposite direction you want the trailer to travel. The knob control should help to avoid this steering confusion.
