Ladies and gentlemen, the day has come. The day we can sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride, because now Ford offers hands-free driving. The new system, called Active Drive Assist, will be offered of new Ford models starting in the second half of 2021.
Ford Motor Company has announced that they will be offering a hands-free driving system on its upcoming Mustang Mach-E as it aims to position it against Tesla’s Model Y and upcoming electric vehicles from General Motors.
The new system, called Active Drive Assist, will be offered of new Ford models starting in the second half of 2021.
Later this year, buyers in the U.S. will be able to order their vehicles with an Active Drive Assist hardware package. Buyers who select the hardware option can elect to purchase the software and receive it via an over-the-air (OTA) update when it is released in the fall of 2021.
When your Ford vehicle is driving on a pre-mapped stretch of highway, its system will have true hands-free functionality. Its infrared camera will continuously track eye and head position of the driver to ensure they are paying attention to the road while the system is operating.
Hands-free driving is something we can finally experience. Ford said that Active Drive Assist will be available on other 2021 models. Until then, check out our 2020 Ford models.
