WARRENVILLE, Ill. — Navistar has announced it’s now offering the Bendix full-stability control system on its medium-duty, severe-service International DuraStar and WorkStar trucks.
“From snowplows and utility trucks to mixers and construction vehicles, truck customers are constantly looking for ways to prevent crashes and improve the safety of their fleet,” said Jim Hebe, Navistar senior vice-president, North American sales operations. “With this latest stability system, we can provide maximum rollover mitigation and help prevent loss-of-control situations that often result in rollovers on dry, wet, snow- and ice-covered roads.”
The Bendix ESP (Electronic Stability Program) recognizes potential rollover situations as well as vehicle under- and oversteer situations and intervenes to help the driver bring the vehicle back under control. The system can selectively apply the brakes and dethrottle the engine, often faster than the driver themselves, according to the company.
