Are you ready to drop your boat in the water for a fun-filled day? If your answer is yes, then make your way to Gus Machado Ford of Kendall. We have plenty of Ford models in our showroom, including the 2018 Ford F-150 that’s equipped and ready to tow.

Before we talk about the Ford F-150, let’s explain a few towing procedures. To start, you’ll need a trailer hitch and receiver installed. Luckily, our certified technicians in our service center can set you up. After that, you’re probably ready to hook up your boat or landscaping trailer, but there are a few things you need to know first.

We suggest leaving an increased stopping distance since you have a load behind you. This prevents the trailer from tipping or colliding with your pickup truck or SUV. You should also adjust your side mirrors so you can see the trailer and the road. Not to mention, wider turns are preferred. This helps you avoid the trailer from hopping the curb, keeping your load safe and secure.

Now it’s time to discuss towing in the Ford F-150 at your Ford dealership near Coral Gables. Coming standard on this pickup truck is a Rearview Camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist. This feature allows you to direct your hitch ball to the trailer receiver when you’re in reverse, preventing you from having to hop in and out of the vehicle. Additionally, you’ll have a towing capacity up to 17,100-lbs., depending on the trim you choose.
