Allison Transmission introduces fuel consumption reductions of up to 20%

Allison Transmission has announced the launch of a new fuel-efficiency package that can deliver up to 20% fuel savings. FuelSense features automatically adapt shift schedules and torque, maximizing transmission efficiency based on load, grade and duty cycle.
“Fuel prices have nearly doubled since the mid-2000s, and fleet owners need solutions,” said Michael Headly, senior vice president, global marketing, sales and service for Allison Transmission. “They want straightforward fuel economy, without compromising overall fleet performance and productivity. With FuelSense, Allison delivers the best of both worlds.”
FuelSense features include 5thGeneration smart controls, acceleration management, and a precision inclinometer; EcoCal shift technology to keep engine speed at the most efficient level; Dynamic Shift Sensing to automatically sense when low-engine speed shifts can be made; and Neutral at Stop to save fuel and reduce emissions when the vehicle is stationary.
FuelSense features have already been integrated into Allison’s TC10 for tractors, and Freightliner has revealed that it will be the first OEM to offer this solution in the North American medium-duty market, available in late 2014 in M2 chassis equipped with Allison 2000 and 3000 series transmissions.
