Allison Show Trailer
Allison Transmission is pleased to sponsor the 2022 Work Truck Week Ride & Drive. In addition to displaying two Allison-equipped vehicles, our Allison Transmission Show Trailer will be open to all event attendees. This trailer features several cutaway transmissions, including a 2000 Series™, 3000 Series™ and 4000 Series™, as well as multiple interactive experiences.

Allison 9-speed transmission
The Allison medium-duty fully automatic 9-speed transmission provides significant fuel savings as new ranges in the gear train allow the engine to operate at more efficient fuel map regions, while also enabling the torque converter to lock up at lower speeds — providing the best combination of performance and fuel economy. Additionally, the 9-speed offers an optional integral engine stop-start system that provides immediate transmission engagement and vehicle hold while the engine is restarted. Built to fit existing OEM interfaces and a variety of applications, the 9-speed model is ideal for urban and regional distribution trucks, light construction, defense, rental and lease trucks, and more.
