SmartAdvantage portfolio expands

John G Smith

Eaton and Cummins have expanded their SmartAdvantage powertrain portfolio with a new transmission offering up to 1,850 lb-ft of torque, supporting linehaul applications with Gross Combination Vehicle Weight Ratings of up to 80,000 pounds.

The powertrain will be offered as a multi-torque model compatible with Cummins SmartTorque2 functionality in ISX15 SA and X15 SA engines rated up to 500 horsepower and 1,550/1,850 lb-ft of torque. As with other SmartAdvantage powertrains, no transmission cooler is required.

It promises to offer better performance when heading up grades or gaining speeds at on ramps, the companies say.
