TESLA’s Advanced Autopilot Package is making a comeback with a $6k price point.
The electric vehicle (EV) maker previously limited its customers to a $12k “full self-driving” configuration.
Tesla’s The Advanced Autopilot represents the middle ground between the standard Autopilot and the full self-driving package of its inventory.
Building on the Enhanced Autopilot foundation are standard Autopilot features, such as:
- adaptive cruise control
- emergency braking
- blind-spot monitoring
- lane-keeping assistance
Enhanced Autopilot builds on this complimentary foundation with innovative additions like Navigate on Autopilot.

Advanced Autopilot features that navigate on Autopilot include:
- smart summon
Summons helps you automatically park and retrieve your Tesla while standing outside the vehicle, Tesla Report.

The Advanced Autopilot isn’t a free pass to fall asleep behind the wheel, despite the package’s advanced capabilities.
No Tesla with Enhanced Autopilot will be fully autonomous, so drivers need to pay attention to the road if they need to switch back to manual controls.
recent reports have reflected that hundreds of Teslas are braking automatically on Autopilot for no reason – a phenomenon known as phantom braking.
While Tesla hasn’t commented on its Phantom Braking report, the manufacturer will release frequent over-the-air updates to refine the Enhanced Autopilot’s functionality.
Tesla’s Autopilot packages serve as a step toward the company’s bigger goal of selling fully self-driving Vehicle,
