INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Allison Transmission has released its 1350 model, a new 1000 Series option with a towing capacity of up to 30,000 lbs. Previously, the maximum Gross Combination Weight approved in the Allison 1000 Series was 26,000 lbs.

The 1350 will be offered within the Highway Series, Rugged Duty Series, Emergency Vehicle Series, Pupil Transport/Shuttle Series, Motorhome Series, and the Specialty Series, the company announced.

The 1350 model comes equipped with a park pawl, meaning no air brake is required. As a result, officials say the driver will experience ease of use comparable to a pick-up truck.

The 1350 model has been released in the International TerraStar truck as the exclusive transmission offering and with the Allison Optimized package.
