Ford’s futuristic new BlueCruise hands-free driving technology is almost here. Later this year, selected 2021 F-150 and Mustang Mach-E models will get this next-generation system via a SYNC® 4 over-the-air software update.
With BlueCruise, you can drive on more than 100,000 miles of divided highway across North America without touching the steering wheel. Ford did extensive testing on these roads to ensure that the system works safely and effectively — even in bad weather and heavy traffic.
When you’re driving on an eligible highway — known as a Hands-Free Blue Zone — a blue light will activate to notify you. To make sure you’re keeping your eyes on the road, a camera monitors the driver’s seat and warns you if your attention wanders.
BlueCruise is available for F-150 and Mustang Mach-E models that have the Ford Co-Pilot360™ Active 2.0 Prep Package. On top of the necessary built-in tech, BlueCruise software costs $600 on eligible F-150 models. It’s included as standard on Mustang Mach-E First Edition, Premium, and California Route 1 trims.
Ford says BlueCruise will also be available on other vehicles in the near future. To learn how you can purchase an F-150 or Mustang Mach-E with this visionary new technology, contact us here at Jordan Ford in Mishawaka, Indiana.
