As a family vehicle or a heavy hauling machine, the Ford F150 provides features that cater towards the needs of a variety of individuals. As the 2010 Ford F150 emerged from concept to reality, a few key features seem to stick out and take a shot at its competitors.
If you’ve ever passed a semi while hauling something behind you, you might be suddenly surprised that you’re all over the road. This is called trailer sway, and Ford has taken precautions to ensure this dangerous occurrence doesn’t happen to you.
Standard in all 2010 Ford F150 pickups is TWC (Trailer Sway Control). Providing stability and control, in a variety of situations that would normally make your blood pressure go through the roof, is something that the TWC specializes in.
By taking a look at Ford's website, you can find videos of trailer sway from a variety of different competitors. With an inexperienced driver behind the wheel, the violently swaying truck could easily get out of control. It would ultimately lead to an accident that could cause severe injuries and an astronomical auto insurance policy hike.
The list of features surely doesn’t stop there. Comfort is a major factor in the decision-making process when looking to buy a vehicle. With kids, even getting into the F150 can be a hassle. But with the new step that Ford has installed, with a push of a button, your kids (and even you) can get into the vehicle with ease.
