Allison Transmission announced that a major wholesale restaurant food distributor, has selected the Allison 3414 Regional Haul Series transmission for its fleet.
The 3414 RHS will be integrated into Navistar’s RH Series trucks, designed to provide customers with productivity and maneuverability.
“When evaluating vehicle options for our customer’s regional food distribution fleet, we felt the Allison 3414 RHS transmission combined with Navistar’s RH truck would best meet their needs and provide a truly differentiated offering that addressed their operational challenges,” said Layth Gaston, national account manager, Kyrish International Trucks of Houston. “The faster acceleration, increased torque capability and elimination of the power interrupted shifts made possible by the Allison transmission provide unmatched benefits to the drivers who operate these vehicles every day.”
The fleet will purchase up to 450 trucks annually equipped with the 3414 RHS. The 3414 RHS offers up to 8% fuel economy improvement over the Allison 3000 Highway Series transmission.
“Allison is proud of the ability of the 3414 RHS to deliver faster acceleration, seamless shifting and increased maneuverability to our fleet customers,” said Rohan Barua, VP of North America Sales, Global Channel, and Aftermarket, Allison Transmission. “The 3414 RHS was designed to deliver the reliability and durability that Allison is known for, combined with improved performance and fuel economy. This latest partnership is an example of the value Allison places in voice of customer feedback and our commitment to delivering innovative solutions that meet the needs of the markets we serve.”
The fleet is expected to put the Allison 3414 Regional Haul Series transmission paired with the Navistar A26 engine into service in late April.
