印第安纳波里斯，2020 年 2 月 – 艾里逊全自动变速箱3414 RHS型号的诞生无疑成为如何使客户和市场需求推动艾里逊产品创新的最佳实例。专为响应客户需求而设计的3414 RHS现已赢得行业专家的赞誉。重型卡车杂志将艾里逊3414 RHS列入2020年前20名获奖产品，肯定其是同类中为最轻、最耐用和最高效的变速箱。
根据从整车厂和终端用户收集的意见，因其久经验证的可靠性、性能和可操控性，艾里逊全自动变速箱3000系列具有很大的市场需求， 但客户需要更高额定功率的产品。作为同类产品中重量最轻的全自动变速箱，3414 RHS具有高达 410 马力的额定功率和 1450 磅-英尺的扭矩。增加的功率可支持车队在混合配送周期中不同需求，通常是城市内配送路线和区域间配送路线交替进行，已成为配送车队日益增长的趋势。和AMT变速箱比较，3414RHS将为车队提高25%加速速率，也就是说最高可提升20英里/小时。通过利用艾里逊的 xFE 技术，集合燃油效率的内部齿轮优化方案， 以及艾里逊FuelSense® 2.0 使用 DynActive® 换挡技术，3414RHS变速箱还可节省高达8%的燃油。
3414 RHS全自动变速箱适用于目前可搭载艾里逊 3000系列的任何车辆底盘－具有其相同的外形、拟合、功能和连接。3414 RHS 将是同类产品里最轻的变速箱。事实上，3414 RHS比竞争对手最轻的同类变速箱要轻11%。同时，艾里逊3414 RHS产品具有行业领先的保修范围：保修期五年，75万英里，包括牵引和其他组件。由于不用更换离合器，车队将省下离合器更换造成的费用和车辆停用损失。
“艾里逊很高兴能将该款产品推向市场，我们同样感到荣幸的是，业界的领军企业们已认可3414 RHS获得的该奖项，” 艾里逊变速箱全球营销总监Branden Harbin说，“我们深信，这款产品可以满足我们客户的所有要求：更高额定功率、更佳驾驶体验、行业领先的保修范围、与柴油和天然气发动机的兼容性和更高的燃油效率 - 同时又满足重量最轻与艾里逊产品一贯的高性能和耐用性。”
3414 RHS全自动变速箱将在Freightliner M2 112 和2020年下半年下线的Cascadia上配载，并计划在2020年出厂的整车品牌上使用。
