Kenworth T270 and T370 Add Bendix Wingman Fusion as Option
KIRKLAND, Wash., December 20, 2017 - Kenworth now offers the Bendix® Wingman Fusion™ advanced driver assistance system as an option on the Kenworth T270 and T370 medium duty trucks.
Bendix Wingman Fusion integrates and advances a proven suite of Bendix safety technologies – radar, camera, the vehicle’s foundation brake system, and SafetyDirect® by Bendix CVS – into a comprehensive driver assistance system.
Built on the Bendix ESP® full stability program, Wingman Fusion offers enhanced collision mitigation, lane departure warning, stationary vehicle braking, and over speed alert and action. This combination typically enables the system to assess a situation faster and react earlier, alerting the driver and decreasing the vehicle’s speed by up to twice as much as Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™, while also reducing instances of false alerts and false interventions.
“We began offering the Bendix Wingman Fusion as an option for the Kenworth T680 and T880 two years ago, and it has been a popular option in the Class 8 market,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director. “Our customers will now have the opportunity to choose this factory-installed option on their new Kenworth T270 and T370 trucks.”
According to Bendix, its driver assistance technologies are designed to complement safe drivers, safe driving practices, and proactive driver training programs, not replace them. Responsibility for the safe operation of the vehicle remains with the driver at all times.
