KIRKLAND, Wash. — Allison’s automatic transmissions can now be spec’d on the Kenworth T800.

The fully-automatic transmission is well-suited for construction and short-haul applications with high horsepower requirements, the company says. The Allison 4000 and the Allison 4500 are now available with Cummins ISX engines that don’t exceed 1,650 lb.-ft. of torque.

“The new Kenworth T800 configuration offers the benefits of automatic transmissions while also meeting high horsepower requirements,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth assistant general manager for marketing and sales. “The Kenworth T800 is one of the industry’s leading models and this new offering will strengthen its position with customers to help get the job done in their specific applications.”

Allison’s automatic transmissions feature a torque converter which is designed to provide seamless, full power shifts.
