Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems’ electronic stability program now is standard on Kenworth Truck Co.’s T680 and T880 trucks.

Kenworth is a unit of Paccar Inc.

“These are Kenworth’s flagship on-highway and vocational vehicles … matching them with Bendix’s road-tested and proven active safety technology is the perfect pairing of great, innovative trucks and the best safety systems,” Scott Burkhart, vice president of sales at Bendix, said in a statement.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will require full-stability technology on most new Class 7 and Class 8 tractors starting in August, Bendix said.

Elyria, Ohio-based Bendix said it introduced ESP in 2005, making it the first full-stability solution widely available for the commercial vehicle market.
