Ford hands-free tech in Toronto, ON

You can now let Ford take the wheel out on the road. The automaker has officially introduced its new Active Drive Assist technology on the 2021 Ford F-150 and 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, allowing for a hands-free driving on certain highways throughout North America.

On prequalified sections of divided highways — referred to as Hands-Free Zones — you will be able to take your hands off the wheel of your properly equipped Ford. You will be monitored by a driver-facing camera, which tracks your gaze and head position to ensure you’re paying attention and keeping your eyes on the road.

The technology will then adjust your steering and speed according to the road and traffic patterns, allowing you to take a break from being in control.

“As breakthroughs in new technology allow us to help reduce the stress of long highway drives, it’s important to make sure these capabilities can be enjoyed by the largest spread of people possible,” said Hau Thai-Tang, chief product platform and operations officer, Ford Motor Company. “Active Drive Assist can help improve the driving experience while ensuring people remain aware and fully in control, all for a price unmatched by our competitors.”

On the 2021 F-150, Active Drive Assist will come available as a part of the Ford Co-Pilot 360 Active 2.0 package. For the Mustang Mach-E, this feature will come standard on certain models.

The technology will be available in the third quarter of 2021 through Over-the-Air Update, which will help Ford improve vehicles over time and keep customers at the forefront of the industry.

Canada’s bestselling automaker - Toronto, ON

Some things never change: For the 11th year in a row, the numbers show that Ford is Canada’s bestselling automaker. The Ford F-Series lineup also continued its sales hot streak in 2019.

Ford Introduces All-Electric Mustang Mach-E SUV

Mustang Mach-E SUV - Toronto, ON

For the first time in 55 years, Ford has decided to expand the Mustang family with its first-ever all-electric, Mustang-inspired SUV: the Mach-E.

The Mustang Mach-E SUV embodies the Mustang spirit, flaunting a sleek silhouette and muscular stance while providing unique driving dynamics and an exhilarating experience behind the wheel. The Mach-E will come available with standard and extended-range battery options, helping it target an EPA-estimated range of at least 475 km.

“The Mustang Mach-E wholeheartedly rejects the notion that electric vehicles are only good at reducing gas consumption,” said Hau Thai-Tang, the chief product development and purchasing officer for Ford. “People want a car that’s thrilling to drive, that looks gorgeous, and that can easily adapt to their lifestyle — and the Mustang Mach-E delivers all of these in unmatched style.”

The Mach-E will offer both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive options. When equipped with the extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive, the Mach-E will be able to achieve up to 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque. It’s also targeting quicker times to 60 mph than the base Porsche Macan series when equipped with all-wheel drive.

Along with its battery options, the Mach-E will also have two special performance options. The GT model will surge 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds, while the GT Performance Edition targets a mid-3-second range and boasts an estimated 459 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque.

The all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV will be available at Downtown Ford and other dealerships across Canada in late 2020.
