International announced Oct. 1 that it will soon offer on the ProStar tractor the Allison TC10 fully automatic transmission coupled with the Cummins ISX15 . The engine/transmission combination will be available for order beginning in December 2015 with expected delivery dates of early 2016.

The Allison TC10, offered with 10 forward speeds and two reverse, uses a patented torque converter and full power shifts to help boost performance and productivity. The premium transmission is ideal for tractor applications, International says, and is well-suited for distribution applications where the tractor-trailer splits its work cycle between city and highway conditions.

First introduced in 2014 on International ProStar and International TranStar powered by N13, the Allison TC10 is the first fully automatic transmission for the Class 8 on-highway segment.

The Allison TC10 comes equipped with Allison’s newest generation of electronic controls and FuelSense system. A standard five-year or 750,000 mile warranty is also included.
