At Dean Arbour Ford of Alpena, we’re big fans of the 2018 Ford models on our lot – but that doesn’t mean we aren’t looking forward to what the next model year has to offer! And when it comes to the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger, there’s a lot to look forward to! We’ve already talked about the intense testing that this tough pickup truck has undergone, ensuring that it’s up to extreme terrains and climates. But of course, strength isn’t the only thing drivers are looking for in their pickups. Most drivers also want to be able to use their truck for practical tasks, such as towing a boat to the lake or a trailer for a move. Luckily, the 2019 Ford Ranger has us covered!

The 2019 Ford Ranger boasts cutting-edge technology for towing that isn’t available in any other mid-size pickup. Thanks to the all-new truck’s Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with trailer coverage, towing is not only easier, but safer. Using radar technology, positioned in the tail-lights of the model, the 2019 Ford Ranger can keep track of what’s going on in blind spots through the end of the trailer. Not only that, but this remarkable technology can also store specific trailer profiles, allowing the system to keep precise track of how far back the trailer’s blind spots go. The BLIS can update drivers about when vehicles are in the blind spots, reducing the risk of accidents. And yes, the system works without a trailer attached too, keeping tabs on the truck’s blind spots as well.

It’s not just the toughness, but innovations like BLIS with trailer coverage that make the 2019 Ford Ranger stand out from the crowd. 2019 is getting closer, and with it the release of this exciting all-new pickup truck.
