Eaton’s 12-speed Endurant transmission now widely available


Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies announced that its Endurant HD 12-speed automated transmission is now available at all major North American truck manufacturers, including International, Freightliner, Volvo, Peterbilt and Kenworth.

Eaton reports that the Endurant HD offers a number of advantages over competitive heavy-duty automated transmissions, including an industry-exclusive transmission fluid pressure sensor, the longest maintenance interval, and the best overall ratio coverage for low-speed maneuverability and downspeeding.

“We work closely with our engine partners to deliver tailored solutions that meet their customers’ needs,” said Charles Masters, general manager, Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies. “In every case, the powertrain—the engine and transmission—is highly efficient and provides a low cost-of-ownership experience for the fleet.”

Engine and transmission powertrain combinations vary by truck manufacturer:

  • The Endurant HD, paired with the Cummins X15™ engine, is available in the Kenworth T680; Peterbilt 579; International® LoneStar Â®, LT Â® Series and RH™ Series; Freightliner Cascadia®; and Volvo VNL.
  • The Endurant HD and Cummins X12™ powertrain, one of the lightest powertrains in its class, is available in the Freightliner Cascadia.
  • The Endurant HD and International® A26 engine combination is available in the International LoneStar; LT Series; and RH Series.
  • The Endurant HD and Detroit™ DD13® engine powertrain is available in the Freightliner Cascadia.

The standard Endurant HD transmission warranty is 5-years/750,000 miles for linehaul commercial vehicles. The Eaton-supplied clutch is covered by a 3-year/350,000-mile warranty.
