Here is a video (not the current one on Ford's web site) that shows Blind Spot Assist. Go to 1:49.

Note the steering wheel icon.

it is exactly what it does in the video.
To be fair, the video only talks about alerting you and it is unclear if the car motion in the video is ADAS or the driver responding to BLIS.

The excerpt in post #15 does say the system "applies a nudge".

I must admit that in the previous post video(#31) everytime there is an assist function steering wheel shown there's kind of some sort of hand's taking care of the steering.

Yes so it's a kind of light alert kind of and then you have to steer back in your lane

You are always controlling the steering. The system will apply a small amount of torque to the wheel to help direct you back into your lane. Just like it does with lane keeping.

Based on the video, yes. Note that the video is from the older Ford Co-Pilot 360. We're getting Ford Co-Pilot 360 2.0.

Based on the Dealer Training brochure @hybrid2bev posted above, the Mach E has actual Blind Spot Assist and describes it as NEW.

Blind Spot Assist and Intersection Assist explainer for the Ford Kuga:

It's quite impressive that the system even works backwards for folks who drive on the wrong side of the road ;)
