Navistar to Offer Allison Transmissions with Cummins X15 Engine for International LT Series and RH Series Trucks

Navistar has announced that the Allison TC10® for its
International® LT® Series of heavy-duty, long haul
trucks, and the Allison 3000 Highway Series™ for its RH™ Series of Class
8 regional haul tractors are now available with the Cummins X15 engine.
The LT Series previously only offered the Allison with the International
A26 engine.

“By offering Allison transmissions with International® LT
Series and RH Series, drivers will enjoy a premium environment with
incredibly smooth shifting, in stop and go situations and over the
road,” said Jim Nachtman, heavy duty product marketing director with

Allison transmissions provide top market value by combining enhanced
performance, greater operational flexibility, and improved driver
comfort and control with industry-leading uptime and reliability. Unlike
manual or automated manual transmissions (AMTs), Allison transmissions
use a torque converter for Continuous Power Technology™ to enable
smoother, faster and more efficient acceleration. Additionally, there is
no dry mechanical clutch that is prone to wear.

“We are pleased Navistar continues to expand the range of Allison
products available for their customers,” said Heidi Schutte, vice
president of marketing and sales for the Americas with Allison
Transmission. “Navistar and Allison have worked closely to provide
optimal integration and improve the way our customers work.”

The fully automatic Allison TC10 and 3000 Highway Series transmissions
are engineered specifically for Class 8 tractor applications. They
maximize powertrain efficiency while achieving and maintaining highway
cruising speeds to save time and money.

“With the TC10 and 3000 Highway Series, Class 8 tractor fleets no longer
have to compromise overall vehicle drivability, transmission reliability
or performance,” said Schutte.

Fleets have documented 5 percent better fuel economy with TC10-equipped
tractors over their manual or AMT-equipped tractors. Additionally, with
Allison’s FuelSense® technology, the TC10 and the 3000
Highway Series both achieve the best fuel economy, regardless of driver
experience or expertise. They shift at just the right points to maintain
vehicle performance and maximize fuel economy.

When you factor in all life cycle costs, an Allison-equipped vehicle
costs less to operate than a comparable competitively-equipped vehicle.
