DuraStar, Workstar add Bendix Electronic Stability system

International DuraStar and WorkStar medium-duty and severe service trucks now include the Bendix ESP Electronic Stability system

International DuraStar and WorkStar medium-duty and severe service trucks now include the Bendix ESP Electronic Stability system to mitigate rollover and vehicle under- and over-steer driving situations.

ESP monitors the vehicle and if it determines a critical stability threshold is about to occur, the system will intervene to assist the driver by selectively applying the brakes or de-throttling the engine.

"From snowplows and utility trucks to mixers and construction vehicles, truck customers are constantly looking for ways to prevent crashes and improve the safety of their fleet," said Jim Hebe, Navistar senior vp, North American sales operations. "With this latest stability system, we can provide maximum rollover mitigation and help prevent loss-of-control situations that often result in rollovers on dry, wet, snow- and ice-covered roads."
