New Ford Super Duty Gets Advanced Trailer Reverse Guidance System

Ford is leading the way when it comes to integrating smart technology into heavy-duty pickup trucks. The all-new F-Series Super Duty will offer an innovative new Trailer Reverse Guidance system which uses multiple cameras to give drivers a better view of the conditions surrounding both their truck and trailer, making backing up easier than ever.

The system also can provide real-time coaching guidance to help drivers maneuver a trailer into tight spots. The system will give drivers a color-coded bird’s-eye view of their truck and trailer on the built-in touch screen, and provides yellow or red warnings to signify the angle is too tight and there is a risk of jackknifing.

The all-new Super Duty is the first Ford vehicle that will offer up to seven cameras, including the first-ever factory available customer placed camera that can be attached to the back of a trailer to improve visibility when backing up. Three of the cameras are used for the Trailer Reverse Guidance system, and are more than just rearview mirrors.

A camera on the tailgate tracks the motion of the trailer and can help coach drivers. The two side-view cameras shift the view of the trailer as the angle changes when backing up, and a center high-mounted stop lamp camera gives a view of the cargo box and dynamic guidelines to make hooking up gooseneck and fifth-wheel trailers easier.

Ford has multiple patents pending on this new Trailer Reverse Guidance system for Super Duty pickups, including a dynamic steering wheel icon that shows drivers which direction to turn to back up a trailer in a straight line.
