Allison Transmission’s 3414 Regional Haul Series™ Fully Automatic Transmission Earns Key Industry Award From Heavy Duty Trucking
Innovations to the proven Allison 3000 Series™ deliver the lightest, most productive transmission in its segment
The award “highlights the most innovative, significant and useful product announcements from last year,” according to
Based on insights gathered from OEMs and end users, there was a need for the proven reliability, performance and maneuverability of an Allison fully automatic 3000 Series transmission, but with increased ratings capability. The lightest transmission in this segment, the 3414 RHS has ratings up to 410 horsepower and 1450 lb-ft. of torque. This increased power supports a growing trend for fleets to utilize their trucks in mixed duty cycles, often in city delivery routes on one shift and regional haul transport routes during a second shift. The 3414 RHS will provide fleets with 25% faster acceleration 0-20 miles per hour, as compared to competitive automated manual transmissions (AMTs). By leveraging Allison’s xFE technology, which incorporates an internal gear scheme optimized for fuel efficiency, as well as Allison’s FuelSense® 2.0 with DynActive® shifting technology, the 3414 RHS will deliver up to 8% fuel economy improvement.
The 3414 RHS is a drop-in solution for any chassis with a current Allison 3000 Series option— with the same form, fit, function and connections. The 3414 RHS will be the lightest transmission in this segment. In fact, the 3414 RHS is 11% lighter than the next lightest competitive transmission in the segment. The 3414 RHS includes Allison’s industry-leading warranty of five years, 750,000 miles, including towing, with no exclusions on individual components. With no clutches to replace, fleets will be free of unplanned downtime due to costly clutch replacements.
“Allison is thrilled to bring this product to market, and we are equally honored that leaders in the industry have recognized the 3414 RHS for this award,” said
The 3414 RHS will be available in the Freightliner M2 112 and Cascadia in the second half of 2020, with additional OEM releases planned in 2020.
