Peterbilt Motors Company has expanded availability for the PACCAR 12-speed automated transmission. The transmission is now available for use in vocational applications where the truck spends most of its time on pavement or maintained dirt and gravel roads, such as roll-offs, bottom dump trailers and heavy equipment transport.
In the new applications, the PACCAR transmission will be available with the PACCAR MX-11 or MX-13 with up to 510 horsepower and 1,850 lb-ft of torque. Maximum gross combined weight will be 110,000 lbs.
“The PACCAR Transmission represents a step change in drivability and performance over previous automated manual transmissions. Along with PACCAR engines, the PACCAR transmission delivers a powerful recruiting and driver retention tool, as well as a reliable powertrain, with the lowest total cost of ownership and the highest quality backed by our industry-leading warranty,” said Peterbilt Chief Engineer Scott Newhouse.
The new configurations are available to order now for 2020 delivery.
