A new driver training video for the Detroit DT12 Automated Manual Transmission has been released by Detroit Diesel Corp. Designed for drivers to watch before they drive a truck equipped with a DT12 for the first time, the video covers functions and features of the transmission such as eCoast and Active Driveline Protection. The video also demonstrates two-pedal operation with an integrated stalk mounted shifter that controls gear selection, and engine brakes, driving modes and manual shifting. Tips on selecting the right driving modes based on terrain and application are also included.
The Detroit DT12 Automated Manual Transmission is currently available in the Freightliner Cascadia equipped with a Detroit DD15 engine and in October in all Cascadias equipped with Detroit DD13 engines.
