Ford is offering a seven-camera system with its 2017 Super Duty trucks that gives a driver additional views around the side of the truck and behind the trailer, Ford has announced.

Ford is offering the Trailer Reverse Guidance system as part of the Ultimate Trailer Tow optional package. The system includes three high-resolution cameras and a color-coded bird's-eye view diagram of the truck to help avoid a jackknife. Yellow or red means the trailer angle is too tight.

Four additional cameras include one behind the trailer, one inside the cargo box, one to see directly ahead of the truck, and a camera to activate a lane-departure warning.

The system enhances rear-view mirrors by including a tailgate camera to track the motion of the trailer, two side-view cameras that shift the view of the trailer as the angle changes, a customer-attached camera for the back of the trailer, and a center high-mounted stop lamp camera to see inside the cargo box.

Ford has submitted two patents on the technology.
