A few other towing and off-road control features include:
• Hill Start Assist, which applies brakes to prevent rollback
• Hill Descent Control, which uses the accelerator and brake to set, and then hold, the speed (this particular system was first used on the 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor)
• Electronic locking differential, which provides maximum traction by forcing the rear wheels to turn at the same speed
• Standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System on all SRW models
• Trailer Sway Control, which uses the AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control systems to provide an additional layer of confidence and control while towing. When the system detects the trailert yawing in one direction, it applies selective brake pressure on the tow vehicle’s opposite side, which damps the yaw and reduces sway.
• 4.2-inch Productivity Screen has six basic menus to keep track of fuel, control features, engage unique truck applications, off-road controls and make decisions based on towing needs
There is so much more to talk about and a slew of features we just don’t have room to mention today. We have some big plans for the new truck and as always, you know we will put it through the ringer and report back if Ford’s new Super Duty is really all its cracked up to be. Now, if I can only convince our Editor in Chief from wanting to jump it off a sand dune!
