Wingman Advanced becomes standard on T680

On Tuesday Bendix announced its Wingman Advanced collision mitigation technology will become standard equipment on Kenworth Truck Company’s T680 models this summer.

“We couldn’t be more proud to see Bendix active safety technology achieve standard position on one of North America’s most trusted, recognized, and innovative trucks,” says Scott Burkhart, Bendix vice president – sales, marketing, and business development. “Quality, performance, safety, and reliability are the hallmarks of Kenworth and its T680, and Wingman Advanced is an ideal complement that will enhance those aspects of Kenworth’s flagship on-highway vehicle.”

“Wingman Advanced is a very popular fleet option on Kenworth’s Class 8 on-highway trucks, and we’re pleased to offer it as a standard feature to customers purchasing new Kenworth T680s as of July 1,” says Kenworth Marketing Director Kurt Swihart. “We share Bendix’s commitment to creating safer environments for truck drivers and everyone who shares the road, and adopting cutting-edge, established technologies that have been shown to improve vehicle and highway safety is one way we continuously pursue that goal.”

Bendix Wingman Advanced delivers adaptive cruise control with braking, along with autonomous emergency braking (AEB) technology. This proven system is built on the full-stability Bendix ESP Electronic Stability Program to create a system that can help drivers in collisions, potential rollovers, and loss-of-control situations, the company says.

Kenworth made Bendix ESP standard on the T680 – as well as its top-tier vocational model, the T880 – earlier this year.
