Lincoln joins growing number of OEMs to offer hands-free driving

Lincoln just announced that, beginning in early 2022, it too will join the list of nameplates offering hands-free driving at highway speeds. Lincoln “ActiveGlide” will be available on the new Lincoln Navigator scheduled to reach showrooms early in 2022. The system uses camera and radar systems to enable hands-free steering on selected highways that Lincoln calls “Hands-Free Blue Zones.” When active, the system will automatically steer, brake and accelerate to stay between the painted lines and maintain a preset distance behind the cars ahead. Lincoln says it will have pre-mapped about 130,000 miles of highways in North America when the vehicle launches.
