Experience the Benefits

Allison fully automatic transmissions provide features that improve safety and comfort while delivering impressive fuel economy, proven reliability and durability and a smooth, yet powerful ride.

Superior comfort and safety

When you’re out enjoying life on the road, the last thing you want is a stressful, tiring or challenging drive. Consider the safety and comfort of an Allison-equipped RV or motorhome as you look forward to your next journey.

With Allison’s Continuous Power Technology™, an Allison fully automatic transmission simply and smoothly delivers uninterrupted engine power to the wheels, letting the driver focus on handling and maneuvering the vehicle. With an Allison Automatic, there is no worry of manually changing gears while driving in traffic and narrow spaces. This freedom makes your vehicle operation stress free. With the ability to keep both hands on the wheel, you will experience a safer ride.

While seamless automatic shifting is safer, it also provides better comfort for you and your passengers. With an Allison, there are no hesitations or jerks during gearshifts. Progressive stopping and quiet operation ensure that everyone experiences an enjoyable, peaceful trip.

Reliable, efficient operation

Allison transmissions are known for performing reliably throughout the expected life of the vehicle. This means your Allison-equipped vehicle spends more time on the road and less time out of service. Allison offers multi-year, comprehensive coverage on all RV and motorhome transmissions which means peace of mind with all parts and service covered throughout the life of the warranty.*

Better fuel efficiency

With an Allison Automatic, you can achieve an optimum level of fuel economy. Our transmissions select the optimum shift points based on load and terrain to automatically enhance fuel savings or add more power when needed. In ‘economy mode,’ the transmission shifts at lower engine speeds to provide fuel savings, and upshifts at higher speeds for greater acceleration when required for the vehicle load and road conditions.

Lower costs, easier maintenance

Allison makes transmission care easy and less costly. Routine oil and filter changes are the only regular maintenance required with an Allison Automatic. With Allison’s Prognostics feature, you can quickly monitor oil life, filter life and transmission health to take the guesswork and hassle out of scheduling routine vehicle maintenance. This saves time and money while providing maximum protection for the transmission. And with an Allison Automatic, you can experience enhanced braking and reduced brake wear as a result of the integral retarder available on some models. If ever needed, our global network of authorized service locations will provide the Allison authorized service you expect.
