Allison details TC10’s fuel economy benefit

March 21, 2013

LOUISVILLE, KY. Allison Transmission is detailing the fuel economy benefit of its new TC10 transmission this week at the Mid-America Trucking Show.

According to Allison, the TC10 produces an average of 5% fuel economy improvement in tractor operation over competitive manual and automated manual transmissions.

“Approximately 100 major fleets throughout the U.S., representing a variety of applications, have been using our TC10 transmission in real world duty cycles over the last two years,” said Jim Wanaselja, vice president of North America marketing, sales and service for Allison Transmission. “The better fuel economy, coupled with Allison’s renowned reliability, durability and ease of operation makes the TC10 a powerful tool for improving fleet efficiency.”

The TC10 is designed for both city and highway tractor duty cycles and provides a blended architecture with full power shifts, a torque converter and a twin countershaft gear box, the company said. It is fully automatic and offers smooth, seamless shifting through 10 gear ranges. This optimizes acceleration and fuel economy.

Rated up to 600 hp. and 1,700 lbs.-ft. of torque at launch, the TC10 is designed with 10 forward speeds and two reverse. It comes equipped with Allison’s newest generation of electronic controls which provide fuel economy features, prognostics to eliminate unnecessary oil and filter changes, and enhanced shift selector functionality.

A five-year or 750,000 mi. warranty is also offered.
