Towing up a trailer is no simple task, especially for a beginner. Automakers are realizing this is an issue and are releasing new tech to help everyone reverse their trailers with ease. Even though the 2019 Ford Ranger isn’t on sale yet, Ford has announced a new tech feature that will help in this department.
Actually, this new feature will be more of an advancement on older technology as Ford will use its blind-spot monitor to help drivers safely tow a trailer. Dubbed Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage uses radar in the Ranger’s taillights to monitor the blind spots on the trailer too and alerts the driver of a vehicle in that area.
The driver can customize the system for the trailer’s length, and he can also save up to three trailer settings in the system for quick changes.
This new system will standard equipment on all 2019 Ranger XLT and Lariat models.
The 2019 Ford Ranger will feature three trim levels: XL, XLT, and Lariat. In addition to these trims, the 2019 Range will also have some customization options, including Chrome, Sport and FS Off-Road Packages, and SuperCab and SuperCrew cab options. Its power will come from a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Stay tuned for additional information as we near the 2019 Ford Ranger release later in 2019.
