Nautilus® Launched with Advanced Self-Driving Capability

NEW YORK – Lincoln debuted its newest sport-utility vehicle — the all-new 2024 Nautilus® –  with evolved design, an available hybrid powertrain, and new connected features including Lincoln BlueCruise hands-free highway driver-assist technology.

On the road, Nautilus brings the most standard advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) capabilities and is among the first vehicles in its class with an available hands-free highway driving feature giving drivers additional comfort and confidence when in traffic or on long journeys.

Building on the top active driving assistance system rating from Consumer Reports for the first version of BlueCruise, the Nautilus launches with Lincoln BlueCruise 1.2 that makes hands-free driving even better with new features and system improvements to create more of a human-like driving feel.

Lane Change Assist enables the Nautilus to perform a hands-free lane change when requested by the driver tapping the turn signal, and it can even suggest if a lane change would be beneficial when following slow-moving traffic.

With the new In-Lane Repositioning ability, the hands-free highway driving experience feels more natural due to keeping the vehicle in its lane while subtly shifting position away from vehicles in adjacent lanes – especially helpful when next to bigger vehicles such as semis.

BlueCruise is now equipped on 193,000 Ford and Lincoln vehicles in North America and customers have accumulated more than 64 million hands-free miles driven with the technology.
