Allison 3414 Regional Haul Seriesᵀᴹ Transmission Selected for Major Wholesale Restaurant Distribution Fleet
The 3414 RHS combined with Navistar’s RHTM Series trucks will deliver improved performance, fuel economy and drivability.
“When evaluating vehicle options for our customer’s regional food distribution fleet, we felt the Allison 3414 RHS transmission combined with Navistar’s RH truck would best meet their needs and provide a truly differentiated offering that addressed their operational challenges,” said
The fleet will purchase up to 450 trucks annually equipped with the 3414 RHS, an uprated variant of Allison’s proven 3000 SeriesTM fully automatic transmission. The 3414 RHS offers up to 8% fuel economy improvement over the Allison 3000 Highway Series transmission and provides 25% faster acceleration when compared to competitive automated manual transmissions. Increased horsepower and the fully automatic architecture translate into more deliveries, reduced route times, and more productivity, especially in frequent start-stop duty-cycles. The 3414 RHS is also the lightest transmission in the segment.
“Allison is proud of the ability of the 3414 RHS to deliver faster acceleration, seamless shifting and increased maneuverability to our fleet customers,” said
The fleet is expected to put the Allison 3414 Regional Haul Series transmission paired with the Navistar A26 engine into service in late April. For more information on Allison’s 3414 Regional Haul Series, please visit allisontransmission.com/3414.
