Allison Transmission launches xFE Transmissions for medium-duty trucks in region

Allison’s xFE transmission is proven over millions of miles in service on thousands of transit and city buses around the world

Allison Transmission has launched two new versions of its xFE fully automatic transmission for use in medium-duty trucks in the EMEA region.

Available now, the 3000 xFE and 3200 xFE models are designed for engines producing up to 370 horsepower and 1695 Nm (dependent on the application), and gross vehicle weight up to 28.5 tons.

According to manufacturer, compared to the standard 3000 and 3200 Series transmissions, the new 3000 xFE and 3200 xFE can reduce emissions and fuel consumption by up to 3.7 percent.

It also explained that the greatest gains are made at speeds below 20 mph (32 kph), depending on axle ratio, and above 45 mph (72 kph).

A fully-loaded vehicle’s ability to climb an incline at a steady speed without needing to downshift and work the engine harder, also improves under 30mph (48 kph).

These characteristics make the new transmissions particularly well-suited to slow-speed urban applications and stop-start duty cycles such as refuse collection, claimed the company.

“Truck fleet operators everywhere are under legislative pressure to reduce emissions, and of course all fleets would like to reduce their fuel costs,” said Sjoerd Vos, Allison transmission director of EMEA Marketing.

“These new xFE transmissions could be a critical tool in helping OEMs and fleets make a 15 percent CO2 emission reduction by 2025 and 30 percent by 2030, as required by EU CO2 emissions standards for heavy-duty vehicles. Doing much more with today’s efficient diesel technology is an affordable and environmentally-responsible stepping stone on the path towards electrification and other non-fossil fuel propulsion systems for which we also have suitable propulsion solutions.”
