PACCAR has designed the new transmission for heavy-duty linehaul applications. The transmission selects gears and shifts based on grade, vehicle weight, engine torque, and throttle position. One of the goals of the transmission is to reduce the cost of ownership, coming equipped with an industry-exclusive fluid pressure sensor system. This system provides advance warning in low oil situations. A special oil-coalescing air filter helps to protect the transmission from contamination.

The new transmission will be backed by a five year, 750,000 mile warranty.
