    Segment Transcript

    I love the stance and beefy look of the ’24 Ranger Raptor and it has everything you need to go off-road. I talked to Ford’s Gretchen Sauer about how the Raptor can help someone like myself who can’t backup a trailer without ending up in the ditch. Sauer: "You know if you're super confident in backing up your trailer into a parking spot or backing it down you know the ramp on to a boat launch that's amazing. But you know for those of you who have a little stage fright, myself included, having ProTrailer Backup Assist just makes it a little bit easier. With a turn of a knob you can set which way you want your trailer to go. And so if you turn it to the left your trailer will go left.  And it just helps you to make sure that you don't jack-knife or embarrass yourself in front of your buddies or your friends and also we have a fully integrated brake controller and that just minimizes the wear and tear on your brakes as well on the brakes of your trailer when you're driving the road, So again just another throughful piece of towing tech for our customers." It’ll cost you about $60 grand to park in your driveway. I’m Laura Reynolds with CarPro.com.
