Talking Cars 342: Hands On—and Hands Off—With Ford Blue Cruise

We discuss how Ford’s driving tech works on the Mustang Mach-E GT, and compare it with Tesla’s Autopilot and GM’s Super Cruise

Main theme: We rented a Mustang Mach-E GT from Ford and got to try out the Blue Cruise active driving assistance system for the first time. We explain how it works, discuss how it stacks up against Tesla’s Autopilot and GM’s Super Cruise, and talk about how it makes sure drivers keep their eyes on the road. You also can read more in our review of the system.

See our complete Ford Mustang Mach-E road test.

Despite my love for quirky, old European sedans like the Renault Medallion, it's my passion to help others find a safe, reliable car that still puts a smile on their face—even if they're stuck in traffic. When I'm not behind the wheel or the keyboard, you can find me exploring a new city on foot or planning my next trip.
