Al­li­son Trans­mis­sion show­cased its new TC10 trans­mis­sion and fifth gen­er­a­tion elec­tronic con­trols while also cel­e­brat­ing its cen­ten­nial at the Bris­bane Truck Show in May.

Al­li­son traces its found­ing back to 1915. The com­pany evolved from work­ing on race cars to be­com­ing a lead­ing man­u­fac­turer of both air­craft en­gines and, be­gin­ning in the mid-1940s, au­to­matic trans­mis­sions. To­day, Al­li­son Trans­mis­sion is the world’s largest man­u­fac­turer of fully au­to­matic com­mer­cial-duty trans­mis­sions. The com­pany has been de­liv­er­ing re­li­able, ef­fi­cient trans­mis­sions to Australia for nearly 50 years.

De­signed specif­i­cally for road trac­tors, the TC10 has found grow­ing in­ter­est in the US and Canada, where fleets have em­braced the new 10-speed twin coun­ter­shaft au­to­matic, which has been de­liv­er­ing fuel econ­omy im­prove­ments in real world day-to-day op­er­a­tions.

Al­li­son con­tin­ues to grow its rep­u­ta­tion as the lead­ing sup­plier for New Zealand and Aus­tralian com­mer­cial-ve­hi­cle mar­kets through new OEM re­leases. Most re­cently, four ma­jor Ja­panese OEMs in Australia have re­cently in­tro­duced Al­li­son fully au­to­matic trans­mis­sions in a va­ri­ety of dis­tri­bu­tion trucks.
