Meritor WABCO has announced that its anti-lock braking system (ABS) is now standard equipment on all International ProStar+ and LoneStar Class 8 trucks.
Meritor WABCO introduced ABS to the commercial vehicle market in North America, and since that time the company says it has built on its innovation with technology improvements to ABS, and then continued development of advanced safety systems.
“ABS really led the way to huge advances in safety technology in the commercial vehicle market,” says 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.”
The inclusion of Meritor WABCO ABS on these 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 industry-leading OnGuard collision safety system to also be utilized on the vehicles, Meritor WABCO says.
