Tremec announces new 10-speed manual transmission for Class 8 trucks

Tremec, a  manufacturer of auto transmissions, has announced the launch of a new 10-speed manual transmission for Class 8 trucks. Tremec’s new 10-speed is built to eschew the industry trend for automation via AMTs, providing instead increased fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, lower weight and smaller size, ease of service, and broad torque capacity. With this announcement, Tremec now manufacturers the lightest 10-speed manual transmission in its class.

“Tremec has been an inside ingredient of many of the leading truck transmission products on American highways,” said Jeremy Holt, Tremec vice president. “Our commitment to the market has grown with significant investment in leading-edge manufacturing technologies. This growth continues with recent investment of over $50 million in new manufacturing capabilities for AMT transmission components.”

Tremec, best known as a manufacturer of auto transmissions, also provides gears, shafts and a multitude of advanced driveline components for commercial vehicles. The company’s components can now be found in over three quarters of the Class 8 commercial vehicles produced in North America.
