How does the Blind Spot Information System work on

Trailer blind spot profiles on the 2019 Ranger

While having blind spot warnings can be useful, if you are towing you may also want warnings about when a vehicles is next to your trailer. Fortunately BLIS on the 2019 Ford Ranger includes trailer coverage. Drivers can keep up to three trailer profiles in the Ranger’s system so that the radar knows the length of the trailer and how far back to provide warnings. It can be challenging to haul a trailer, but with the Blind Spot Information System on the 2019 Ford Ranger drivers can leave some worry behind.

You can see this in action on the video embedded in this page.

Rear cross traffic alert

In addition to BLIS (which will also work just fine without a trailer) the 2019 Ford Ranger is available with rear cross traffic alerts that will warn drivers if there is a car coming behind them when they are leaving a parking space. This can make leaving a parking lot or a tricky work site even easier.

2015 Ford F-150 XLT FX4 Test Drive Review

Join me in reviewing my time behind the wheel of a 2015 Ford F-150 XLT FX4!

2015 Ford F-150

Trim:   XLT, FX4

Drive:  4x4

Engine: 3.5L V6 Ecoboost

Fueleconomy.gov MPG Reports:  Combined – 19, City – 17, Highway – 23


First impressions:  There is a reason the iconic Ford F-150 has been the number one selling truck for 41 years straight. It is beautifully designed, powerful and fictional. Perfect for the family or job site, with a wide array of available options to suit any buyer.   


Ride, Drive & Comfort:  I have driven every body style Ford truck from 1957 - today and I have enjoyed each one for different reasons. The latest line of F-150's from Ford are truly awesome trucks. The truck was a joy to drive . The ride was really smooth and comfortable. The cabin is extremely roomy. Rear passengers have an abundance of leg room and the rear seat folds up clearing space for quite a bit of storage inside cab. I found front, side and rear visibility to be extremely good. No noticeable blind spots. Like all other Ford products, this truck had the optional back up camera. Which aided driver confidence when backing in crowded parking lots. Combined with the trailer tow package the back up camera also made hooking up a trailer easy. Driver controls are all within easy reach and easy to commit to memory. The radio had a great sound. A feature I particularly enjoyed when I was riding by myself was the ability to change the sound settings to driver only. It made it feel like the drivers seat had its own personal surround sound system!


Engine performance:  At 282 HP and 253 lb-ft of torque Ford’s 3.5 V6 is a very good match for this truck.  It had ample power for quick acceleration and passing.  The engine did what it was supposed to, when it was supposed to do it at a level that met / exceeded my expectations.  I took this truck on a trip to West Virginia to pick up a Ford Model T. On the way to West Virginia pulling an empty trailer we averaged 18.3 MPG. On the way home with car loaded we averaged 16.2 MPG. A side note after we were back home and had unhooked the trailer the truck averaged 23.1 MPG HWY. I was pleasantly surprised how power the 3.5L ecoboost engine was. Even when climbing hills towing the Model T in the Appalachians we could hardly tell the trailer was there. Can't say enough how enjoyable this test drive was!

Overall I enjoyed my time behind the wheel of the Ford F-150.  It is a sharp looking, versatile and practical vehicle.  With great power, smooth ride & great tow / haul capacity.
