What Does the Feature Do?
Rather than using the steering wheel, when utilizing the Pro Trailer Backup Assist, all a driver has to do is rotate a knob to indicate how much steering power to the left or right they would like applied to the vehicle. The system will then steer the vehicle automatically, while also limiting vehicle speed when necessary for both comfort and to handle difficult road surfaces.
So, why is this useful? Well, not only is it easier, it should also save you some precious time when trying to back up a trailer in a difficult spot.
How Much Can the Ford Expedition Tow?
This is sure to be a big feature for Expedition drivers, as Ford discovered that half of Expedition customers value towing, while 15% of them tow on a weekly or monthly basis.
So if you’re interested in a vehicle with these types of capabilities, you’ll also want to know how much it can tow. Well, the all-new Expedition blows the competition out of the water here, as it has a best-in-class towing capacity of 9,300 pounds.
