Kenworth's Predictive Cruise Control Looks Ahead to Save Fuel

Predictive cruise control uses terrain mapping and GPS satellite locating to manage the engine and transmission for efficient operation on up- and downgrades. It can be a multi-step procedure, and a driver might or might not notice them all. In rolling terrain, the system can save 1% to 2% in fuel, Kenworth says. Image: Kenworth
