Our extended service intervals keep you on the job longer and with no mechanical clutches, there is less wear and tear on all parts of the drivetrain. Drivers get smooth, reliable power to the wheels, fewer breakdowns, and more miles before scheduled maintenance.

Improved Vehicle Control White navigation arrow

  • Whether a driver is experienced or newly recruited, everyone will benefit from greater precision, safer handling and improved comfort. Behind the wheel, drivers are more alert and in tune with the vehicle, leading to increased control and improved safety.

Smart Controls White navigation arrow

  • Allison automatic transmissions for Fire and Emergency applications have brains in addition to brawn.
