When you purchase a full size pickup, like the F-150, you are most likely looking for a capable work truck to handle your towing, hauling, and off-road needs. Ford has created some applications to make those jobs easier for you.
Using the five-way controls on your steering wheel you are able to access and navigate the menu to select the truck apps to manage the off-road and trailer capabilities of your truck.
Some of the options available to you on the trailer screen are:
- Change active trailer
This will allow you set up and store settings for the different types of trailers you pull.
- Connection checklist
This will provide a checklist of information for making sure your trailer is connected properly.
Provides information on the trucks load capacity and helps you maintain your speed and improves torque management.
- Trailer brake controller
Provides information on how to use it and get the most out of this feature.
