Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies is expanding its Endurant lineup with the XD Series automated transmission, engineered for the most demanding heavy duty on-and off highway applications. It should be available in 2021.

The equipment is still being developed and rigorously tested in extreme conditions, but will have torque and horsepower capacity for any Class 8 engine in North America, the joint venture said. the high gross combined weight rating makes this suitable for trucks pulling double and triple trailer configurations as well as dump trucks and logging trucks.

Kenneth Rocker, product manager for the Endurant XD, could not share technical specifications quite yet, but did note the XD will exceed the 110,000-lb. GCW capacity of the Endurant HD 12-speed.

The XD series can be placed in 18 forward speeds and six reverse gears. The Enduarnt software and low-speed maneuverability will make driving easier and the driver more confident despite the task’s difficulty level.

“The DNA of the Endurant platform is efficiency, light weight and low cost of ownership,” said Charles Masters, general manager, Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies. “We’ve taken that DNA and added the durability and unique features that customers demand from trucks operating in severe heavy haul and vocational applications to create the Endurant XD series.”

There are also provisions for bottom 8-bolt and rear 4-bolt high-capacity power take-offs; a transmission oil cooler provision is also available.
