Navistar Offers Lightweight Transmission Option

September 24, 2014

Navistar Inc. will offer the Tremec 10-speed manual transmission in its International ProStar model with the company’s 13-liter engine. Tremec offers a range of high torque-to-weight ratios designed for weight sensitive over-the-road and city applications. The pairing will also maximize payload for applications such as bulk haul.

“Tremec transmissions are not only known in the automotive industry for a wide variety of high-performance cars, but Tremec components are used in transmissions throughout the commercial transportation industry,” said Jodi Presswood, general manager, Heavy-Duty Truck Product Line, Navistar. “This lightweight transmission reduces the weight of the vehicle while also providing our customers with yet another choice.”

Navistar will offer four Tremec transmission options paired with the company’s 13-liter engine, available with 370-450 horsepower and 1,350-1,700 lb-ft torque for line haul and regional haul applications in the U.S. and Canada.

The company also offers Tremec transmissions as an option in its ProStar with Cummins ISX15.
