The Endurant XD series is an all-new, purpose-built, 18-speed automated transmission designed for on-highway applications with high gross combined weight ratings, such as double- and triple-trailer trucks, and vocational applications operating in harsh environments.

“We think Mexico fleets are going to really like the Endurant XD series as they make the move from manual transmissions to automated transmissions,” said Max Martinis, Mexico sales director, Eaton Cummins. “The Endurant XD series delivers an impressive combination of capability and ease of use, which is important in Mexico’s challenging environment.”

The Endurant XD features Eaton’s legendary twin-countershaft design with helical gears optimized for fuel efficiency. The Endurant XD delivers up to 2% improvement in fuel efficiency when compared to the UltraShift Plus.
