Navistar’s International DuraStar and WorkStar medium-duty and severe-service trucks now offer the latest advancements in electronic stability control technology.

“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 vice president, 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.”

International brand medium-duty and severe-service vehicles offer the Bendix ESP (Electronic Stability Program), which delivers full-stability performance for applications from ambulance and fire trucks to utility, government, and construction vehicles. Bendix ESP is an antilock braking system (ABS)-based truck stability system capable of recognizing and assisting with both rollover and vehicle under- and over-steer driving situations and a variety of road conditions.

The Bendix ESP stability system continuously monitors a variety of vehicle parameters and sensors to determine if the vehicle is reaching a critical stability threshold. When such a situation develops, the Bendix ESP system will quickly and automatically intervene to assist the driver. The system can selectively apply vehicle brakes, as well as de-throttle the engine typically faster than the driver.
