4. Ford F-150 Pro Trailer Backup Assist

A classic problem for pickup drivers is trying to learn how to drive the auto in reverse while hooked up to a trailer. The Ford Pro Trailer Backup Assist is one of the favorite new technologies in trucks. Instead of having to undergo the potential embarrassment of failing to be able to gracefully backup one’s ride with a trailer hooked up, the driver can now grab a dashboard mounted knob to steer. If one wants the trailer to go to the right, he or she simply has to turn the knob to the right. Without the knob, the driver would need to turn the steering wheel to the opposite direction of the desired trailer movement and then steer into the turn once the trailer is moving in the correct direction.
