If you’re anything like us, you’ve dreamed of the day when you could own a car that practically drives itself. Thanks to Ford and its innovative BlueCruise hands-free driving feature, that dream is now a reality.
BlueCruise is an all-new technology developed by Ford to ensure safe hands-free driving on the highway. When you’re in a BlueCruise Hands-Free Zone, which covers more than 100,000 miles of highways across North America, you’ll be able to engage the system and take your hands off the wheel.
This incredible technology isn’t even something of the near future — it’s now. The feature is being offered on the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 and the all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E. If you own one of these vehicles equipped with the Ford Co-Pilot360™ Active 2.0 Prep Package, you’ll be able to download BlueCruise software via Ford Power-Up over-the-air updates.
To help ensure that BlueCruise hands-free technology is up for the task, Ford sent 10 test vehicles out last year to cover 110,000 miles of testing across 37 states and five Canadian provinces. Putting the system to the test in all different weather, traffic, and road conditions, the test vehicles demonstrated that BlueCruise is ready to turn the self-driving car from myth into truth.
And if you’re one of the thousands upon thousands who’s preordered the incredible new 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning electric truck, worry not — it’s getting BlueCruise technology, too. You can expect this feature to roll out even more across the Ford lineup in the years ahead, meaning your favorite Ford vehicle could put the power of self-driving technology in your hands (or, more appropriately, let you take your hands off the steering wheel).
