DENTON, Texas – Peterbilt announced recently that the Dana Spicer AdvanTEK 40 tandem drive axle is available for all heavy-duty truck models.
The new axle design can save about $1500 in fuel costs annually because of its efficient axle design.
“This new axle provides customers with numerous bottom-line benefits, particularly in linehaul applications, including higher fuel economy, lower maintenance and increased payloads,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt director of sales and marketing. “With the AdvanTEK 40 customers can spec the fastest axle ratios in the industry to handle higher torque input while reducing engine speeds by 200 rpm for better fuel efficiency.”
The AdvanTEK 40 is available on Peterbilt Models 587, 579, 567, 389, 384, 382, 367, 365, 348 and 320. It is suited for direct-drive transmission drivetrains requiring ratios 2.26 to 2.79.
