Allison Transmission announced that the Allison 3414 Regional Haul Series (RHS) fully automatic transmission has been integrated into Volvo’s heavy-duty VNL trucks and is currently available to order.
The first production orders for 3414 RHS equipped VNL trucks have been built for regional haul, food and beverage, and distribution customers. This release at Volvo supports Allison’s growth in the heavy duty day cab tractor market, which represents a growth opportunity of $100 million dollars in annual revenue.
This growth initiative is the result of Allison’s investments to develop the 3414 Regional Haul Series, along with expanded OEM releases targeting this segment.
The Allison 3414 Regional Haul Series is a variant of Allison’s proven 3000 Series fully automatic transmission. The 3414 RHS offers up to 8% fuel economy improvement over the Allison 3000 Highway and Rugged Duty Series transmissions.
“We are proud to partner with Volvo to provide our mutual customers with a proven, durable and reliable transmission that will increase performance, efficiency, fuel economy and overall ease of operation in regional haul distribution trucks.” said Rohan Barua, VP, North America Sales and Global Channel and Aftermarket, Allison Transmission. “The 3414 Regional Haul Series is an example of Allison’s dedication to continued innovation, as well as our commitment to continued investment in our conventional transmission portfolio. The 3414 RHS expands Allison’s addressable market and enables the pursuit of share growth opportunities in the North America heavy duty day cab tractor market.”
The 3414 RHS is a drop-in solution for any chassis with a current Allison 3000 Series option. The 3414 RHS includes Allison’s warranty of five years, 750,000 miles, including towing, with no exclusions on individual components.
