The Blue Oval has infused this Super Duty with key technologies that provide enhanced trailing control for more confident pulling.

All trims of the 2021 F-450 come equipped with standard Trailer Sway Control (TSC), which is a system that moderates how much your load shifts when in motion. If your trailer starts to sway while towing, the TSC system will flash the stability control light in the Super Duty’s information display, and a “trailer sway reduce speed” message will also appear. The TSC system will begin to apply the truck’s brakes to individual wheels and reduce engine power, if needed, to re-establish control.

When the TSC system activates, it could mean that your trailer is improperly loaded or the speed of your vehicle is too high. It’s a good idea to slow down, pull over and inspect that your trailer is correctly connected and that your load is distributed correctly. Monitoring your speed and staying within a safe pace are also recommended when towing.

As a result, you have little time to sit at a desk to write up quotes, communicate with customers or deal with suppliers. The 2021 F-450 – available from Skaha Ford in BC – understands this struggle. That’s why the Blue Oval has infused on-road productivity into the Super Duty with the inclusion of FordPass Connect.

This feature enhances production with a Wi-Fi hotspot that can connect up to 10 devices in the 2021 F-450 or up to 50 feet away. With a reliable internet connection, you and your crew can connect laptops, tablets, smartphones, and more to check email, update social media, send and receive important files, etc. FordPass Connect essentially turns the cab of your truck and the surrounding construction site into an office on wheels, ensuring seamless integration with your job responsibilities.

FordPass Connect complement’s the 2021 F-450’s FordPass app, which allows you to activate the truck’s remote start system or schedule remote starts at specific times of the day and week. You can also lock or unlock the vehicle and check in on vital vehicle stats, such as the fuel level, mileage and upcoming maintenance services. Additionally, the FordPass app provides a vehicle locator, so you can see where the truck is parked.

FordPass Connect with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities comes standard on the 2021 F-450. Contact our team at Skaha Ford for a demo, and be sure to ask us about our medium-duty truck services for BC commercial fleets.

With the 2021 F-450 – available from Skaha Ford in BC – your crew will enjoy hauling convenience with the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System.

This advanced suite of driver assists is part of Ford Co-Pilot 360 Technology. It includes Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which activates with the rotation of a knob to help maintain greater control while backing up a trailer. This feature complements Trailer Reverse Guidance, which relies on an expanded view from the cameras in the sideview mirrors and visual guides in the centre dash screen to direct the truck and trailer into position. As the steering wheel changes directions, the guidelines and camera angles change.

Additionally, the 2021 F-450’s Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System includes a 360-degree camera with a split-view display, which shows images from all views of the truck’s sides. A centre high-mounted stop lamp camera also provides a picture of the pickup bed, which is helpful when connecting to a fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch.

The Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System comes standard on the 2021 F-450 King Ranch, Platinum and Limited trims or optional on XL, XLT and Lariat trims. Contact our team at Skaha Ford in BC to book a test drive today or inquire about our medium-duty truck maintenance and repair services.

With the 2021 F-450 – available from Skaha Ford in BC – your crews can focus on their drive with the Super Duty’s rain-sensing windshield wipers. 

This advanced feature is part of the 2021 F-450’s Ford Co-Pilot 360 technologies and comes standard on King Ranch, Platinum and Limited trims or optional on the Lariat. The system works by detecting moisture on the windshield and activating the wipers automatically to ensure driver visibility.

To activate the system, the driver must raise the right-hand control stalk into the first upward position and choose the desired sensitivity – the higher the sensitivity, the faster the wipers will clean the windshield and vice versa. 

Once the system is in the on position, the driver does not need to activate, deactivate or adjust the wiper speed under usual driving conditions. The rain-sensing windshield wipers handle that automatically. The only time the system needs to be turned off is when taking the truck through an automatic car wash.

The 2021 F-450’s rain-sensing windshield wipers are only one of the many conveniences you’ll find in this Super Duty. To learn more about this medium-duty truck’s features or inquire about our commercial fleet services, contact Skaha Ford in BC.
