KIRKLAND, Wash. — Kenworth has made Allison’s vocational automatic transmission available on its T300 medium-duty trucks.
The Allison 3000 HS Highway Series vocational model transmission has been designed with line-haul and local P&D applications in mind.

Allison says it also features increased horsepower and torque capacity and includes a standard oil level sensor.
"Kenworth continues to offer additional options for the T300, which has become a popular choice in the marketplace thanks to its reliability, durability, and low-cost of ownership," says Steve Gilligan, Kenworth general marketing manager.
