Allison TC10 to be available in Kenworth and Peterbilt models this year

PR Newswire — March 23, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS, March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Allison Transmission today
announced its TC10® for Class 8 tractors will be available from PACCAR later
this year in the Kenworth T680 and T880, and Peterbilt 567 and 579 models.

“We’re pleased to partner with PACCAR to introduce our TC10 in their vehicles,”
said Heidi Schutte, vice president of marketing and sales for the Americas with
Allison Transmission.

With an innovative and unique design, the fully automatic TC10 combines
Allison’s torque converter with a twin countershaft gear scheme. This
combination provides both full power shifts and cruising fuel economy for
greater productivity and efficiency. The transmission is ideal for tractor
applications and is extremely well-suited for distribution applications where
the tractor-trailer splits its work cycle between city and highway conditions.

“The TC10 combines the startability and continuous, uninterrupted power shifting
qualities of a fully automatic transmission with the cruising aspects of a
manual transmission,” said Schutte. “Simply put, drivers don’t have to be
experts at shifting because the TC10 shifts for them at exactly the right point
to maintain vehicle performance and maximize fuel economy, thereby allowing the
driver to focus their attention on the road.”

Overall, fleets adopting the TC10 and sharing data with Allison are reporting an
average fuel economy improvement of 5 percent when compared to other
transmission technologies. With FuelSense®technology, a unique package of
software and electronic controls, the TC10 achieves the best fuel economy,
regardless of driver experience or expertise.

Due to its ease of use, the TC10, like all Allison fully automatic
transmissions, expands the size of the driver pool. Even experienced drivers
benefit from more precise, safer handling and improved comfort. Fully automatic
shifting reduces driver fatigue and keeps a driver’s attention on the road.

The Allison TC10 includes an industry leading standard warranty of five years or
750,000 miles, with no exclusions on individual components and no scheduled
maintenance for 500,000 miles.
