2021 F-150 Towing Tips

Before you take your new Ford F-150 to the streets of Schenectady and Clifton Park for work, you’ll want to keep a few F-150 towing tips in mind. These tips will ensure that your F-150 is performing efficiently and effectively when you tow, haul cargo, and transport your passengers:

  • Double-check to ensure that your trailer’s tires and truck’s tires are all properly inflated.
  • Make sure that all items that you’re towing are completely secured.
  • Remember to leave extra space between you and the car ahead of you, as you need more time to brake or slow down with a trailer attached!
  • Be extra careful of surrounding traffic as you’re changing lanes or merging on the highways (use BLIS® to your advantage!)
