Volvo makes Allison RHS transmission available on VNL trucks

Allison Transmission has announced that the Allison 3414 Regional Haul Series (RHS) fully automatic transmission has been integrated into Volvo’s heavy-duty VNL trucks and is currently available to order. The first production orders for 3414 RHS equipped VNL trucks have been built for regional haul, food and beverage and distribution customers.

The Allison 3414 Regional Haul Series is an uprated variant of Allison’s 3000 Series fully automatic transmission. The 3414 RHS offers up to 8% fuel economy improvement over the Allison 3000 Highway and Rugged Duty Series transmissions, and provides 25% faster acceleration when compared to competitive automated manual transmissions (AMTs), according to the transmission manufacturer. The 3414 RHS is also the lightest transmission in the segment at up to 11% lighter than the next closest competitive product.

The 3414 RHS is a drop-in solution for any chassis with a current Allison 3000 Series option with the same form, fit, and connections. The 3414 RHS includes Allison’s warranty of five years, 750,000 miles, including towing, with no exclusions on individual components. With no clutches to replace, fleets will be free of unplanned downtime due to expensive clutch replacements often associated with AMTs.
