International will be introducing the Allison TC10 fully automatic transmission coupled with the Cummins ISX15 on its ProStar model, said to be an industry first. Order it in December for delivery in early 2016.

ProStar gets Allison TC10 with Cummins ISX15The TC10, with 10 forward speeds and two reverse, is well suited to distribution applications where the tractor-trailer splits its work cycle between city and highway conditions, says International.          

First introduced in 2014 on ProStar and TransStar models powered by the N13 engine, the TC10 is the first fully automatic transmission for the class 8 on-highway segment. It offers full-power shifts, a torque converter, and a twin-countershaft design.

The TC10 sports Allison’s newest generation of electronic controls and ‘FuelSense’ technology, said to provide superior fuel economy, prognostics to eliminate unnecessary oil and filter changes, and enhanced shift-selector functionality. A standard five-year or 750,000 mile warranty is also included.
