ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

Reads traffic conditions via front-facing radar sensor and modulates the throttle and the brakes to keep your truck at a pre-set distance from the vehicle in front of it.

COLLISION MITIGATION

Detects when the truck may be about to collide with another vehicle or object, alerts the driver and takes pre-emptive braking action — when necessary — to avoid or considerably reduce the severity of a crash.

SIDE OBJECT DETECTION

Constantly monitors a truck’s blind spots and provides the driver with audible and visual alerts when an object or vehicle has entered these zones — invaluable when making a lane change or negotiating tight delivery sites.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

This system continually monitors the truck’s location related to lane markings and automatically emits a distinctive audible warning whenever an unintended lane change (unsignaled) is detected — alerting the driver to make a correction.

CONNECTED TRUCKTECH+

An innovative new technology that helps you diagnose and solve potential problems before they impact your operation.
