DETROIT – Sept. 18, 2013 – Detroit Diesel Corporation (Detroit) today announced that the Detroit™ DT12™ Automated Manual Transmission is now available for the Freightliner Cascadia® equipped with the Detroit DD13® engine.
The DT12 combines the operational ease of an automatic with the efficiency of a manual transmission. Featuring a lighter weight, the DT12 paired with the DD13 engine is ideally suited for regional haul, pick-up and delivery applications.
“Because of the type of routes that they run, which often involve a lot of stop and go operations, our regional haul customers are seeking ways to extend fuel economy,” said Brad Williamson, manager, engine and component marketing for Daimler Truck North America. “Together, the DT12 and the DD13 provide a smart, productive solution that boosts efficiency.”
The DT12 has performance features that further maximize efficiency, such as creep mode, which modulates the clutch to improve low-speed maneuverability, making backing up to a loading dock or maneuvering through tight city traffic easier. Skip Shift, which automatically skips gears, enables the transmission to run through lower gears faster to achieve cruising speed sooner.
The DT12 comes standard with a 5-year/750,000-mile warranty, with a 3-year/350,000-mile warranty on the clutch. The Detroit Customer Service network provides immediate access to maintenance information, and with hundreds of authorized locations in the United States and Canada, factory-trained technicians are always available.
