Allison transmissions on Peterbilt and Kenworth trucks now come with load-based shift scheduling for better fuel economy.
DENTON, Texas — Peterbilt and Kenworth have both announced that load-based shift scheduling (LBSS) is now available on their vehicles equipped with Allison’s automatic transmissions.
Allison’s LBSS automatically selects between economy and performance shift schedules based on factors such as payload and grade. The transmission intelligently switches between the two modes seamlessly to optimize fuel economy, according to the companies.
For details, speak to a Peterbilt, Kenworth or Allison dealer.
