Heavy loads are no match for the 2021 F-450 from Skaha Ford in BC. 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 â€œtrailer sway reduce speedâ€ 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.
