Road Today - - Contents - RT

Peter­bilt has an­nounced the avail­abil­ity of the Al­li­son TC10 fully au­to­matic trans­mis­sion on Mod­els 567 and 579 later this year.

The Al­li­son TC10 is de­signed for trac­tor ap­pli­ca­tions, such as re­gional and line-haul, and fea­tures a twin-coun­ter­shaft de­sign op­ti­mized for en­gine down­speed­ing and fuel

econ­omy. The patented torque con­verter of­fers in­dus­try ex­clu­sive en­gine torque mul­ti­pli­ca­tion at launch, en­abling lower gear ra­tios while still main­tain­ing per­for­mance. The TC10 will be of­fered for ap­pli­ca­tions re­quir­ing up to 1,850 lbft of torque, and up to 110,000 GCW.

The Al­li­son TC10 of­fers op­er­a­tional ease and ver­sa­til­ity, both key ben­e­fits that ap­peal to fleets fo­cused on driver re­cruit­ment and re­ten­tion. These ben­e­fits trans­late into re­duced driver train­ing time and cost, lower main­te­nance cost and in­crease up­time.

The TC10 has no sched­uled main­te­nance for 500,000 miles, and an in­dus­try lead­ing five-year or 750,000 mile com­pre­hen­sive trans­mis­sion war­ranty with no ex­clu­sions on in­di­vid­ual com­po­nents.
