The new Ford F-150 takes the hassle out of towing

If you're like a lot of drivers here in the greater Christiansburg, VA area, then you've probably owned a pickup truck for years now, and you consider yourself pretty adept at towing with it. But even if you've owned a boat or camper trailer for a long time, you have to admit that towing still presents challenges. Fortunately, few of trucks are quite as adept at tackling those challenges as the new Ford F-150 for sale here at Motor Mile Ford.

Now, when it comes to towing, there's a few things that really set the new Ford F-150 apart from the pack. First is its capacity, which stacks up to a whopping 13,200 pounds when properly equipped. That's more than enough for larger boats, cargo trailers, camping trailers, and then some.

Next is its BLIS® with Trailer Coverage. Available as part of the innovative Ford Co-Pilot360™ system, the BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Trailer Coverage can alert to you to objects and obstacles in both the blind spot of your truck and the blind spot of your trailer, so if you're towing gear for long distances on the highway, it's never hard to merge or change lanes.

Finally, there's Pro Trailer Backup Assist. This class-exclusive system uses an easy-to-understand knob controller in concert with the standard rearview camera system on the Ford F-150. Simply turn the know where you want your vehicle to go and the system will automatically steer your truck to hitch up your trailer or reverse in and out of tight spaces.

But while the new Ford F-150 may offer a whole host of systems for towing, it's even more advanced in other areas. So, if you're looking to see how the new Ford F-150 can make all the tough tasks you tackle a bit simpler, feel free to pay a visit to Motor Mile Ford in Christiansburg, VA for a test drive today.
