Another change is that the Comfort / Tech package on the Select category is now $ 2,900, instead of $ 2,300, due to the addition of BlueCruise software.
BlueCruise is Ford’s name for its assistance system that enables hands-free driving on certain prequalified sections of divided highways. At launch, Ford has over 100,000 miles of road where this system can provide hands-off monitoring. A camera monitors the driver to ensure that the person is always attentive to the road.
BlueCruise initially comes with three years of service. After this period, buyers will need to renew the subscription to maintain access to the technology.
The 2021 F-150 and 2021 Mustang Mach-E are the first models to receive BlueCruise. It comes standard on the top-of-the-line F-150 Limited and optional on the Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum grades. Ford previously announced that BlueCruise will be part of the $ 1,900 Co-Pilot360 Active 2.0 option for the Mach-E GT and GT Performance.
A recently spied F-150 was loaded with sensors for autonomous driving. This suggests that BlueCruise is just the start of Ford’s strategy for introducing autonomous vehicles.
