New from Hendrickson Bumper and Trim is a new addition to the extensive Aero Clad line, a lightweight bumper for the Freightliner Coronado SD.
The new bumper has a bright mirrored finish that promotes better corrosion resistance as well as weight savings. It’s more than 150 lb lighter than the OEM steel equivalent, made of a bi-metal material that bonds stainless steel and aluminum at a molecular level. The result, says Hendrickson, is a chrome-like finish that will not rust, peel, or fade over time.
The material is said to have a higher yield strength than steel, making it durable. It comes with a five-year limited warranty.
The bumpers are available today through the Hendrickson All Makes Program and can be purchased through Freightliner dealers
