PRE-COLLISION ASSIST WITH PEDESTRIAN DETECTION106

If the system's sensors detect a potential collision with a car or pedestrian walking in from of you, a warning flashes in the instrument cluster and an audible alert sounds. The brakes will also pre-charge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do break.106  If you do not take corrective action and a collision is imminent, brakes can apply automatically. Smart features like Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection can assist your employees and maintain uptime to keep your business vehicles on the road and taking care of your customers.

DRIVER-ASSIST TECHNOLOGIES

With that in mind, a wide range of technologies were developed to help keep them all confident behind the wheel. These features include the available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping System and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support.10

SIDE-WIND STABILIZATION SYSTEM

Standard side-wind stabilization technology19  is designed to help reduce driver stress and fatigue during highway driving in high winds. The system monitors sensors and, if a strong wind gust is detected, it carefully applies the brakes on one side to help the driver stay in the lane. It works in conjunction with Roll Stability Control 10  on slippery surfaces – to help avoid skids, lateral slides and potential vehicle rollovers.
