Kenworth will offer Allison's TC10(R) fully automatic transmission as an option on its Kenworth T680 on-highway flagship and popular T880 vocational model tractors with availability later this year.

The Allison TC10 is designed for line haul, regional haul, and pick-up and delivery tractor applications. The transmission provides 10 forward and two reverse speeds. A patented torque converter and twin countershaft gearbox optimize acceleration while improving fuel economy through engine down-speeding and uninterrupted power shifting in all ranges. The TC10 is integrated with multiple engine offerings and will be offered by Kenworth for applications requiring torque up to 1,850 lb. -ft. and up to 110,000-lb GCW.

“We are looking forward to offering the TC10 to our customers. Kenworth continues to add product options for the fuel-efficient Kenworth T680 on-highway and rugged T880 vocational tractors, such as the Allison TC10 transmission,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director.

The Allison TC10 offers a comprehensive five-year or 750,000-mile warranty. Additionally, customers can expect a superior total cost of ownership with no maintenance required for 500,000 miles.
