Allison Transmission has built a reputation on our ability to build transmissions that last just about forever. That is why Allison Automatics are the preferred choice for many large, well-known transit and charter bus fleets. On a vehicle with an automated manual transmission, the power interrupts that occur during shift changes result in lower average wheel horsepower. With an Allison Automatic, there is no power interrupt during shift changes so Allison Automatic’s can make full use of the engine’s horsepower. No power interrupts also contribute to a smoother ride.Increased shifting performance, faster acceleration, greater operating flexibility and minimal rollback are all advantages attributed to the patented heavy-duty Allison torque converter. The torque converter’s
cushion effect reduces shock and strain on all driveline components.
DYNAMIC SHIFT SENSING
Feature that automatically selects between lower and higher speed shift schedules based on the vehicle’s weight and the grade on which it’s operating.
defined set of low and “super” low speed shift schedules designed to keep the engine speed at its optimum point, maintaining necessary performance without shift cycling.
NEUTRAL AT STOP
Feature that reduces or eliminates the load on the engine while the vehicle is stopped, reducing fuel usage and emissions.
ACCELERATION RATE MANAGEMENT
Feature that mitigates aggressive driving practices by automatically controlling engine torque. The intensity of control is determined by the vehicle’s weight and grade on which it’s operating.
WTEC I II III, 3RD, 4TH, 5TH GENERATION ELECTRONIC CONTROLS
To get the most out of every drop of fuel, Allison Generation Electronic Controls offer an enhanced array of smart controls designed to increase fuel economy and fuel efficiency for the specific needs of buses.
Calibrated to the vehicle’s particular operating requirements, Allison prognostics monitor various operating parameters to determine and alert when service is due. This eliminates unnecessary oil and filter changes and provides maximum transmission protection.
INCREASED LOCKUP AVAILABILITY
B 300 and B 400 models equipped with this feature are able to shift into lockup in 1st range, and lockup stays on through 1st to 2nd shift. The transmission’s electronic controls monitor
acceleration to determine when to activate lockup.
APPLICATION ENGINEERING REVIEW IS REQUIRED FOR THIS FEATURE. RETARDER ENABLE
Allison’s electronic controls precisely blend the transmission with the ABS-compatible, integral retarder and the vehicle’s service brakes to provide peak braking efficiency.
SECONDARY SHIFT SCHEDULE
Allows driver to select between two preprogrammed shift patterns, quickly and easily, to match driving conditions.
DIRECTION CHANGE ENABLE
Prohibits shifts from Neutral to Drive or Reverse without first pressing a dash switch or applying the service brakes.
AUXILIARY FUNCTION RANGE INHIBIT
Will not allow transmission to shift into forward or reverse unless the service brakes are applied.
Keeping it safe. The driver in an Allison-equipped bus has more time to check the mirrors and to
look forward and behind. There simply aren’t as many distractions. Comprehensive coverage.
All Allison Bus Series models offer comprehensive coverage with 100% parts and labor. Coverage may vary by model and application. Copeland International For Details Maintenance made easy.
Routine oil and filter changes are the only regular preventive maintenance required with an Allison Automatic. An Allison Approved TES 295 transmission fluid greatly extends oil change intervals for most applications.
