Allison Transmission showcases new xFE technology for fuel savings in bus fleets worldwide

Allison Transmission introduced its new fully automatic xFE models designed for best-in-class fuel economy during the 2016 China Beijing International Exhibition on Buses, Trucks and Components, May 23-25. The xFE transmissions have demonstrated up to 7-percent fuel economy improvements in bus applications, in addition to FuelSense® gains.

Designed to deliver significantly more lock up operation while operating at lower engine speeds in higher ranges, the xFE models have the same space claim and ratings as current Torqmatic® models, but incorporate optimized gear ratios coupled with the FuelSense® Max package. Allison now offers three new xFE models outside North America – the T 3280 xFE™, T 3325 xFE™ and T 3375 xFE™  transmissions

Start-stop driving, densely-packed traffic routes and lower average speed duty cycles present particular challenges for any transmission. Allison xFE models meet these challenges without sacrificing drivability or performance, and the new gear ratios improve fuel economy, while also being compatible with alternative fuel engines.
