Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies has increased the application coverage for its Endurant 12-speed overdrive transmission. Effective January 2020, pickup and delivery, as well as certain construction, refuse and agriculture applications, are approved with Endurant.
Since launching in late 2017, the Endurant portfolio has grown to include overdrive models with single- and dual-PTO options and direct-drive models. Endurant is currently available as part of an integrated powertrain from Kenworth and Peterbilt, International, and Freightliner.
“We’re pleased to offer Endurant in these new applications,” said Charles Masters, general manager, Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies. “Fleets will appreciate the improved driveability and nearly 90kg [198 lb] weight saving that Endurant provides over our previous transmissions.”
“The product team has developed new performance calibrations for customers that prioritize acceleration and route times in these additional applications,” said Charles Ganske, product manager, Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies.
