•Best-in-class towing and Pro Trailer Backup Assist showcase how Ford is changing the way the world moves – delivering smart solutions that improve the customer experience and provide more time for families to enjoy summer

DEARBORN, Mich., May 25, 2017 – If you're launching a boat or towing a large load, the all-new Ford Expedition featuring class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ makes it easier than ever to perform such tasks with confidence.

More than 50 percent of Expedition customers value towing, and 15 percent tow weekly or monthly. That's why the all-new Expedition offers Pro Trailer Backup Assist to make backing up a trailer as easy as turning a knob.

In addition, Expedition boasts best-in-class towing capability of 9,300 pounds, based on the Society of Automotive Engineers J2807 standard, more than any other full-size SUV, making it the smartest, most capable and adaptable Expedition ever.

Pro Trailer Backup Assist helps take the frustration out of backing up with a trailer. It works by letting the customer steer the trailer with a control knob while the Expedition steers its wheels and limits vehicle speed.

To operate Pro Trailer Backup Assist, the driver rotates a knob to indicate how much the system should turn the trailer, then the technology automatically steers the Expedition to turn the trailer the desired amount. The system can limit vehicle speed to enhance occupant comfort over various road surfaces. The result is less time required to back up a trailer along with added driver confidence; the technology can even help towing experts by reducing time lost to maneuvering mistakes.

'Warmer weather has families longing for outdoor adventures, and the all-new Expedition provides generous space, connectivity and smart new technology for the trip,' said Craig Patterson, Ford SUV marketing manager. 'With best-in-class towing capability of 9,300 pounds and available Pro Trailer Backup Assist, you can spend more time on the water rather than struggling to back up and launch your boat.'
