Does the tow package include a trailer brake controller? Is one available from Ford? Thanks.

It does not and no, there isn’t. If you need one, you’ll need an aftermarket one. As far as I know, although I haven’t checked my 2018 yet, Ford DID include somewhere to plug one in. Not sure where, probably hidden somewhere under the steering wheel or under the glove compartment, based on other vehicles I’ve seen.

Nice looking car. I really like the wheels, they set off all of the blackness.
