Tow Smarter Through West Michigan in the 2019 Ford Ranger

When the 2019 Ford Ranger pickup arrives at Borgman Ford in Grand Rapids this upcoming winter, there’s one very handy feature you’re going to want to check out. New Ford Ranger XLT and Lariat models will include the Blind Spot Information System, and you’ll be able to adjust the “size” of your blind spot to include the length of your trailer! Whether you’re a towing pro or just getting the hang of it, having this “extra set of eyes” so to speak can be a valuable thing while heading out to your favorite getaway for the weekend.

Take a look at how the system works in this article from the Official Ford Media Center below:

When the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger goes on sale later this year, customers will be able to get innovative towing technology not available in any other midsize pickup.

Taking boats to the slip or ATVs to the dunes is easier with Ford Ranger’s class-exclusive Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage. After hooking up a trailer, radar housed in Ranger’s taillights monitors blind spots all the way to the back of the trailer. The system keeps drivers informed of the presence of a vehicle in the truck’s blind spots until that vehicle passes.

Ranger can store up to three trailer profiles, including a trailer’s length, to let the radar system know how far back to provide warnings when another vehicle is traveling next to the trailer.
