You might be surprised to learn that the Ford F-150’s impressive sales records are due to a lot more than just towing and hauling capacities. This super truck is also making a name for itself in the realm of technology and the 2016 model is fitted with superior tech options designed specifically with truck users in mind. Consider a used model for your next vehicle.
The Blue Oval has gone above and beyond for technology features in this truck. You can opt for a 360-degree camera system that will remove all the stress of navigating through crowded areas or driving on a busy highway. Other fun add-ons include dynamic hitch assist and a remote tailgate release system.
Using steering wheel buttons, you can program different settings, bring up towing and vehicle performance information, and more on the 8-inch display, which Ford refers to as a “productivity screen”. This touchscreen is also home to the advanced SYNC 3 infotainment system. The intuitive interface provides navigation, device pairing, and entertainment options. You can even use smartphone gestures like swiping and pinch-to-zoom.
If you often find your truck hitched to a trailer, you’ll go crazy for the Pro Trailer Backup Assist. A CarGurus article explains that a knob situated on the dashboard allows you to steer the trailer, while the autonomous park-assist technology maneuvers the wheels.
