Hybrid

Despite conventional wisdom, you shouldn’t have to give up power to gain great fuel economy. With an Allison fully automatic transmission, you get both.

It begins with Allison’s Continuous Power Technology ™, which efficiently transfers power and torque from the engine to the drive wheels without interruption. This means Allison transmissions, equipped with our patented Torque Converter, accelerate faster and get more work done in less time than manual or automated manual transmissions (AMTs).
