New Dana axle, driveshafts

| March 11, 2013

At the American Trucking Associations’ Technology and Maintenance Council annual meeting in Nashville, Dana representatives showcased a host of new heavy-duty vehicle products:

  • The Spicer AdvanTEK 40 tandem axle, an all-new, 40,000-lb. tandem drive axle designed to be lightweight and strong while offering the lowest gear ratio available in the industry, specifically suited to direct-drive and overdrive powertrains. Production of the AdvanTEK 40 will begin in 2014.
  •  The SPL-350 driveshaft and SPL -250 inter-axle, specifically designed to supply greater torque, durability and savings for severe-duty vocational applications and low-emissions, high-efficiency trucks. Both will be available in the second half of 2013.
