Ford is launching the latest version of its hands-free driving technology with a trio of helpful new features. BlueCruise 1.2 launches with the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E and is expected to roll out to additional vehicles in the upcoming model year.
What’s new for Ford BlueCruise 1.2?
Ford is adding three new features to BlueCruise 1.2:
- Lane Change Assist: Allows you to make a hands-free lane change by tapping the turn signal
- Predictive Speed Assist: Adjusts speed at curves and gives advance notice so you know what’s coming
- In-Lane Repositioning: More subtle lane adjustments to help you stay within the lines, which Ford says will be extra noticeable when driving next to semi trucks
Ford BlueCruise reaches thousands of drivers
Ford’s hands-free driving technology has accumulated more than 16 million miles of use in around 14 months, making it one of the most successful technologies of its type today. In July, Ford expanded the availability of BlueCruise to around 15,000 drivers with 2021 F-150 trucks and 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E electric vehicles.
Between vehicles with BlueCruise installed and those that have received it via Ford Power-Up over-the-air updates, some 65,000 drivers (and counting) are now able to drive hands-free in over 130,000 miles of Hands-Free Blue Zones.
BlueCruise is currently available on the new Ford F-150, Expedition, Mustang Mach-E, and F-150 Lightning. Expect BlueCruise 1.2 to bring this feature to even more key vehicles in the Ford lineup.
