Meritor WABCO, a provider of safety systems for the commercial vehicle industry, announced that its anti-lock braking system is now standard equipment on all International ProStar+ and LoneStar Class 8 trucks.

“ABS really led the way to huge advances in safety technology in the commercial vehicle market,” said Jon Morrison, president and general manager of Meritor WABCO. “With that system as a reliable durable foundation, OEs 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.”

Effective immediately, customers of International ProStar+ and LoneStar Class 8 trucks will see the code 04AZE in the Navistar databook for ABS, which will allow them other optional Meritor WABCO safety-related products such as automatic traction control, rollover stability control, electronic stability control and the OnGuard collision safety system.
