Towing a trailer can be hazardous to your health –If you don’t know what you are doing. In 2014, according to the Department of Transportation, over 68 thousand American motorists were involved in towing-related accidents. For many of those involved in this statistic, proper safety practices and loading techniques are probably not used. So you can avoid any issues when towing, let’s look at some of the basics.

The first step before towing anything is to make sure that both your vehicle and trailer are properly load-rated. The load rating refers to the carrying capacity of the hitch and tow vehicle. The essential components are the hitch on the trailer and the receiver on the tow vehicle. It is advised that the minimum hitch/receiver rating be a Class III (6000 lbs tow weight) regardless what you are towing. If you towing heavier loads it is advised that you talk to an automotive professional, perhaps at your local dealership, to get the best advice about equipment.

After you have decided on what level of hitch and receiver you need, you can look into the type of trailer you need. As you probably know, there is a trailer built for every need that you can imagine. It is suggested that you talk to someone well versed in this sort of thing for advice also. You can find this at any trailer sales outlet or rental company.

If you are towing anything large, you will likely deal with swaying at some point – particularly if it is windy. This can quickly lead to an accident. If it occurs to you, the best corrective action is to gently back off the gas and allow the vehicle slow down. The swaying will quickly dampen and eventually stop. Note: You can minimize the risk of swaying by making sure that the load on the trailer is properly centered over the axles and centered.

As with most tasks, preparation before you hit the road is the key to safe and successful trailering and the best way to avoid becoming one of the 68,000 plus motorists involved in trailering accidents each year. Good Luck!

0ee5f945f604 1 1.jpg 2013 Seoul MotorShow: Hyundai Reveals Heavy Duty Truck Xcient

Hyundai Motor Company’s commercial division today unveiled its new heavy duty truck Xcient at the 2013 Seoul Motor Show. The next generation of Trago, which debuted in 2006, returns with greater styling and a variety of improved features. 

The Xcient is expected to set new standards in the heavy duty truck market with an impressive combination of grand, dynamic style, best-in-class fuel economy and spacious cabin room. The name ‘Xcient’ was made combining XC, the biggest unit measuring data, and the word ‘efficient,’ conveying the truck’s power and efficiency. 

“The Xcient is the result of Hyundai Motor’s relentless pursuit of excellence and technology innovation,” said Hanyoung Choi, Hyundai Motor’s Vice Chairman. “We believe that this new vehicle will help us achieve our goal of becoming a major player in the commercial vehicle market.” 

The Xcient, which took three years and 200 billion won of investment to develop, offers a full lineup including cargo, tractor and dump. From the early development stages, truck customers’ needs and market trends were fully reflected. The wide grille strengthens its confident look, while side character lines add to its bold yet sophisticated image. 

The cabin height was increased by 330 mm to 1,895mm, giving drivers more space. The width of the bed inside the cabin has also been increased to 800mm from 650mm, optimizing the truck for long distance driving. The 1,046 L storage room offers more convenience as well. The Xcient comes with two diesel engines: 10L H-engine, with maximum output of 420ps, maximum torque of 200kg/m, and Powertech engine, with maximum output of 520ps, maximum torque of 255kg/m. 

Due to improved engine performance, the new model’s fuel economy has been enhanced by seven percent from the previous model. In addition, the new model boasts enhanced durability resulting from improved components, including dump spring, twin clutch and air suspension, making the truck more economically efficient by lowering maintenance costs. 

The Xcient adopted a number of convenience features for the first time in the commercial vehicle market, such as driver seat with cold/warm air ventilation, button-start. In particular, Hyundai’s advanced in-vehicle telematics service ‘Blue Link’ was included for the first time in its commercial vehicles. 

Hyundai Xcient will go on sale in the second half of this year with a target of 60,000 global sales by 2017. Hyundai is set to hold events for the new car in overseas markets including Peru and Russia. 

During the 2013 Seoul Motor Show, Hyundai displays a total of eight models, including the Xcient, CNG hybrid bus and electric bus at a separate booth dedicated to commercial vehicles.
