Besides the upgraded body styling, drivetrain performance and innovation that the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger will bring to the table, one of its features is one of the most advanced in the market, and it’s sure to make your towing experiences that much easier.

BLIS with Trailer Coverage is one of the coolest truck innovations we’ve ever seen, and it works by using radar systems that are housed in your Ranger model’s taillights. These sensors can monitor your blind spots to the back of your trailer, and in turn, warn you when another vehicle is entering the area.
