Navistar Makes Meritor Wabco ABS Standard on Models
August 2, 2012
Meritor Wabco's anti-lock braking system is now standard equipment on all International ProStar+ and LoneStar Class 8 trucks.
The inclusion of Meritor Wabco ABS on these two International trucks allows for other optional safety-related products including automatic traction control, rollover stability control, electronic stability control and the OnGuard collision safety system.
"ABS really led the way to huge advances in safety technology in the commercial vehicle market," said Jon Morrison, president and general manager, Meritor Wabco. "With that system as a reliable, durable foundation, OE's 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."
