Allison reaches milestone with production of the 500,000th transmission in its 4000 Seriestm



INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Allison Transmission today announced the production of its 500,000th fully automatic 4000 Seriestm transmission. Benefiting a wide range of commercial-duty vehicles, the transmission series is used in applications that include refuse, construction, fire and emergency, distribution, coach and transit bus, and motorhomes.

Allison began producing the 4000 Series transmission at its Indianapolis headquarters in 1993. To accommodate demand outside of North America, the company also began building the transmission at its facility in Szentgotthárd, Hungary in 2005.

Allison fully automatic transmissions use Continuous Power Technologytm to smoothly multiply engine torque and deliver more power to the wheels. As a result, fleets experience better productivity, fuel economy, comfort, safety and operational flexibility than those with manual and automated manual transmissions (AMTs).

Globally recognized for their quality and reliability, Allison transmissions are highly regarded for their greater overall economic value. This is demonstrated by the residual value that accompanies an Allison-equipped vehicle, as compared to a vehicle equipped with a manual, AMT or dual-clutch transmission (DCT).
