Autocar has always been on the cutting edge of technology and innovation and this includes our dedication to providing the safest route vehicle available on the market. Autocar is committed to producing a tool that not only protects your greatest asset, your drivers, but also enables them to do the rough work this industry requires with safety, comfort, and efficiency.

With this in mind, we are proud to announce that our Autocar ACX severe-duty cabover vehicles will be even safer with the addition of six new advanced safety features:

  • Electronic Stability Control System (ESC): Actively intervenes when the vehicle is understeering or oversteering in order to maintain vehicle stability
  • Rollover Stability Control System (RSC): Actively intervenes when the vehicle is at risk of a driver-induced, rollover event
  • Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS): Vehicle detects impending collision and actively engages emergency brakes
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW): Driver visibly and audibly warned of impending collision
  • Stationary Lane Departure Warning (SLDW): Steady light located on the A-pillar illuminates with audible warning
  • Blind Spot Detection (BSD): Flashing light located on the A-pillar warns the driver of a vehicle in his blind spot

These new advanced safety features are being added to a truck that already has:

  • Best in class visibility
  • Up and down, in and out – best ingress and egress for refuse
  • HVAC-focused insulation, testing, specific hot and cold zone options
  • Reduced duplicity of monitoring and controls, which minimizes confusion and clutter
  • Tighter wheel cut and turning radius, means less time in reverse!
  • Optimized leg, head, and torso room for driver satisfaction and retention
  • Weight distribution, suspension loading for maximum driver comfort
  • Drivers safely enclosed in all steel cab, with automotive-style tooling with rugged fabrication

What you end up with is a route vehicle that is second-to-none when it comes to protecting your drivers, your customers, your community, and your company.
