Kenworth Truck Company says the Bendix ABS-6 system is now standard on its class 8 trucks, offering improved serviceability and a platform to introduce additional new features. For example, Kenworth now offers Bendix ABS-6 Advanced with ESP (Electronic Stability Program) as an option on selected Kenworth T600, T800 and W900 tractor configurations. According to Bendix, this option helps stabilize the vehicle during under- and oversteer driving situations and may assist in avoiding a rollover. It’s designed to detect a vehicle’s impending loss of stability and automatically intervenes by selectively applying tractor and trailer brakes, and perhaps by de-throttling the engine to help control the vehicle in a jackknife condition.
