Peterbilt also introduced a brand-new, vocationally focused automatic transmission for the new medium-duty lineup. Designed by ZF, the new Paccar TX-8 is a fully automatic transmission, featuring eight gears and the ability to monitor changes in road grade, vehicle acceleration, torque demand, weight and engine load to keep the truck in the most fuel-efficient gear.
