Allison Transmission Debuts FuelSense Suite for Fleet Fuel Efficiency


Allison Transmission has introduced its new FuelSense technology platform, which is designed to boost trucks' fuel savings by up to 20%.

Central to FuelSense are smart controls, acceleration management and a precision inclinometer, along with EcoCal shift technology (to keep engine speed at the most efficient level) and proprietary Dynamic Shift Sensing (to automatically sense when low-engine speed shifts can be made).

The company says FuelSense features have already been integrated into Allison's TC10 for heavy-duty tractors. Freightliner will be the first OEM to offer the solution in the North American medium-duty market, available later this year on the M2 chassis equipped with Allison 2000 and 3000 series transmissions.

‘Fuel prices have nearly doubled since the mid-2000s, and fleet owners need solutions,’ says Michael Headly, senior vice president of global marketing, sales and service. ‘They want straightforward fuel economy, without compromising overall fleet performance and productivity.’
