    Lincoln eGlide = SuperCruise?

    Ford has recently trademarked "Lincoln eGlide", I think I may know what it's for.

    Lincoln is getting a version of "CoPilot 360+ 2.0", essentially Ford's version of hands-free SuperCruise with facial tracking. The hardware actually debuted silently on the Mach E but Ford hasn't officially launched it yet. You can see the face tracking monitor mounted above the steering wheel in the Mach E. This tech is going to be available on most Lincolns and Fords and is part of the new Sync 4 architecture. The idea is that it can be activated and updated over time.

    Anyway, that's my theory on this. Lincoln currently uses "AirGlide" for their adaptive air suspension system. Presumably the Aviator is the most eligible candidate for the platform since Aviator and Explorer are getting a Sync 4 update for 2022.

    Ford/Lincoln marketing is baffling to me. With names like CoPilot360+ 2.0, MyFord Touch, EcoBoost, EcoSport, Quiet Flight....eGlide is classically awkward Ford.

    If AirGlide is a suspension system, I have a hard time believing eGlide isn't, just a different kind, like MRC is electrically charged.

    I'd say this is more likely than them naming their cruise system eGlide....or they're launching a product to sell in the Adam and Eve catalog to counteract GMs Electic Hummer

    Hahahaa - I was trying to think of a way I could put eGlide into a sentence with Hummer!

    Ford does like to work with brands for special editions - such as Eddie Bauer or Harley Davidson. Maybe they'll have a eGlide Trojan Edition. Engage "Trojan eGlide" and mood lights come on, Barry White starts playing and the windows tint!

    Ford has officially debuted what I was talking about. Other 2021 models will also be getting it. Just waiting on Lincoln to make their announcement. It's coming to several 2021 Fords with Sync 4, presumably the Broncos and F-150 in addition to the Mach E. It will become a widely available feature as their vehicles get updated with the Sync 4 connected vehicle architecture.
