2018 Ford Expedition Offers Pro Trailer Backup Assist, Tows 9,300 Lbs
The 2018 Ford Expedition boasts a best-in-class towing capacity of 9,300 lbs and now offers the automaker’s patented Pro Trailer Backup Assist system.
Ford says Pro Trailer Backup Assist helps to take the frustration out of backing up a large load such as a boat or a trailer. To operate the system, the driver rotates a knob on the dash to indicate how much steering input is needed. The technology then automatically steers and limits vehicle speed to place the trailer in a suitable spot.
Full-size SUV shoppers place a high priority on towing, with more than 50 percent of Expedition customers saying they value towing capacity in a vehicle, and 15 percent saying they tow on a weekly or monthly basis. This inspired Ford to ensure the 2018 Expedition not only had a high tow capacity, but made it just as easy to maneuver large trailers as one of its F-Series pickups.
