TROY, Mich. — Meritor Wabco’s anti-lock braking system (ABS) is now standard equipment on all International ProStar+ and LoneStar Class 8 trucks.
“ABS really led the way to huge advances in safety technology in the commercial vehicle market,” said Jon Morrison, president and general manager of Meritor Wabco. “With that system as a reliable, durable foundation, OEs have the opportunity to look at fully integrated safety systems that not only decrease the risk of accidents, but also lower overall vehicle operating costs through reduced vehicle downtime and risk reduction.”
Officials say the inclusion of Meritor Wabco ABS on the two International trucks allows for other optional safety-related products including automatic traction control (ATC), rollover stability control (RSC), electronic stability control (ESC) and the OnGuard collision safety system.
Effective immediately, customers of International ProStar+ and LoneStar Class 8 trucks will see the code 04AZE in the Navistar databook for this item.
