WHAT IS IT?
The 2021 Ford Active Drive Assist system is a brand new driver assist feature that makes hands-free driving possible on over 100,000 miles of highway in the U.S. and Canada.
The system only works in Hands-Free mode on pre-mapped sections of divided highways. Where you can engage the system, you’ll be able to cruise around without lifting a finger.
No matter where you live in the U.S., Ford’s semi-autonomous driving software can help you get around with maximum peace of mind. Highways have been pre-mapped in all fifty U.S. states.
There’s a safety catch, however. Active Drive Assist uses a driver-facing camera to track your head position and eye movements to ensure that you’re still paying attention to the road. The system can even keep track of your gaze through most sunglasses.
