The Power Of The Torque Converter
Allison’s torque converter smoothly multiplies engine torque, delivering more power to the wheels. By multiplying the engine power, drivers get increased performance, faster acceleration and greater operational flexibility.
Automatic vs. Dual Clutch Transmissions
While the manual clutch pedal is gone in a dual clutch transmission (DCT), a clutch still facilitates the vehicle’s launch. Dual clutch transmissions (DCTs) do not benefit from engine torque multiplication which limits vehicle performance. Allison Automatics are unique because our patented torque converter experiences very little wear and our transmissions require only periodic fluid and filter changes to maintain peak performance.
