Trailer-Sway Control

Trailer-Sway Control

Sway560

Both Dodge and Ford offer trailer-sway control technology for the first time.

In the case of the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500, its stability control system has been enhanced to counteract unintended trailer motion. It does so by using the truck’s antilock braking and traction control systems to apply individual wheel brakes and/or reduce engine power.

The Ford F-150 uses a more sophisticated trailer-sway control system: By taking advantage of its integrated trailer-brake controller, the F-150 can apply both its own brakes and the trailer’s brakes to stop sway, making the road safer for other drivers, too.

Awesome. I love more control. Always a great thing, for sure!

The trailer-sway control is very effective. You don't know what to expect when you're in the road. There could be obstacles along the way which will cause sudden movements, and by having this you'll have lesser worries.
