Ford offers the Lightning with the latest version of its hands-free driving system called BlueCruise. Designed for use in designated divided highway situations (BlueCruise lets the driver know when it’s available), the system works like an advanced dynamic cruise control, holding a speed while keeping a set distance behind the vehicle ahead. While BlueCruise handles the steering to keep the truck in its lane, it can be a little nerve-wracking in busy traffic since it seems to wander back and forth a bit within the lane. Once out of traffic, BlueCruise provided a nice break from the stress of driving. However, BlueCruise does require eyes on the road (and monitors for that), so the driver can’t simply browse on a phone or read a book.
