Sneak peek: Pickup Trucks

Here’s an excerpt from Herb Ellis’ review of the 2019 pickup trucks running in our Oct/Nov issue.

 Ford F-150

After big changes in 2018, the 2019 Ford F-150 offers add-ons that make your job easier. The F-150 has a pickup bed with available features including flexible, configurable BoxLink system, stowable loading ramps, tailgate step with lift assist, and a remote tailgate release that lets you lock, unlock, and lower the tailgate.

The BoxLInk system is worth a mention. It comes with four lockable cleats that plug into ports – two on each side of the box. They will let you use a wide range of aftermarket accessories such as cargo dividers and stowable loading ramps.

Box side steps are available on all cab configurations.

Backing up a trailer involves navigating two vehicles at the same time – the truck often going one way and the trailer going in the opposite direction. The available Pro Trailer Backup Assist makes this often-tricky manoeuvre as easy as turning a knob. Simply rotate the knob left or right in the direction you want the trailer to go.
