April 26, 2016

PACCAR has started an engineering program with Allison Transmission to release the fully automatic Allison TC10 in the latest PACCAR models. The TC10 transmission will be offered in Kenworth T680 and T880 and Peterbilt models 567 and 579 with both PACCAR and Cummins engines.

Offered with 10 forward speeds and two reverse, the TC10 uses a patented torque converter and twin counter shaft design. It is designed for tractor configurations to optimize performance and fuel economy with uninterrupted power shifting in all ranges.

“We are looking forward to offering the TC10 to our Peterbilt and Kenworth customers”, said Landon Sproull, PACCAR assistant vice-president. “Allison’s reputation for quality and technology is well known.”

An industry leading five-year or 750,000 mile transmission system warranty is included.
