What is Lincoln BlueCruise*?

Lincoln BlueCruise allows hands-free highway driving on 97% of controlled access highways across the U.S. and Canada. These areas are called hands-free Blue Zones.

When activated, a mode indicator located within the display cluster shows a graphic of a steering wheel with the text “Hands-Free.” A blue background hue appears when it is safe to remove your hands from the steering wheel and indicates when you need to put your hands back on the steering wheel to take control. This indicator helps provide a clear notification for when Lincoln BlueCruise is engaged.

Important: 

  • Some BlueCruise features will vary as new versions are developed for newer vehicle models. For specific BlueCruise feature information for your vehicle, see your Owner's Manual
  • BlueCruise cannot be used while towing.

How it Works

Available Lincoln BlueCruise builds upon Adaptive Cruise Control with stop-and-go and Lane Centering.

BlueCruise controls the steering, braking, and acceleration of your vehicle while keeping you centered in your lane. In order for BlueCruise to work, the driver must be paying attention to the road (as determined by the driver-facing camera), lane lines must be clearly visible by the external sensors on the vehicle, and you must be traveling in a Blue Zone (determined by the connected maps in the vehicle).

BlueCruise lets you switch lanes hands-free with Lane Change Assist and provides extra room with In-Lane Repositioning, where your vehicle subtly shifts away from vehicles in adjacent lanes.**
