cummins-2017-x15-with-eaton-automated-manual-transmission

Since its introduction in 2013, the SmartAdvantage™ Powertrain from Cummins and Eaton has proven to be the most fuel-efficient powertrain in the trucking industry. Now, the SmartAdvantage™ Powertrain lineup includes the original small-step overdrive transmission as well as a new direct drive version delivering top-of-the-class fuel economy for more customers than ever before.

Cummins X15 with SmartTorque2 and SmartCoast

The  SmartAdvantage™ Powertrain features your choice of Cummins X15 or ISX12 engines with SmartTorque2 (ST2) and SmartCoast™, paired with an Eaton Fuller Advantage® 10-Speed automated manual transmission (AMT). The engine and transmission share critical data, determining the torque required to deliver the optimal power level demanded by drivers.

The X15 SmartAdvantage Powertrain optimizes shifting based on grade, vehicle weight, engine torque and throttle position. The result is error-free, guess-proof shifting − making every driver in your fleet as efficient as your best driver.

Direct Drive Or Overdrive. The Power of Choice

The X15  SmartAdvantage™ Powertrain using direct drive transmissions is designed to maximize fuel economy in specific duty cycles and operating conditions. Some regional-haul or LTL truckers will see better results using the small-step overdrive transmission.

Eaton Fuller Advantage 10-Speed Automated Transmission

New features of the Eaton Fuller Advantage 10-Speed Automated Transmission include the strategic use of lightweight components and Precision Lubrication. Small-step technology enables downspeeding in overdrive and efficiency in direct drive. Optimized shifting is based on grade, vehicle weight, engine torque and throttle position.

Fuel economy is further enhanced through precision lubrication. Precision lubrication technology reduces churning losses, and eliminates the need for a cooler in most applications, for reduced weight and increased reliability.
